Mark Wahlberg's new movie Pain & Gain opens today, and I can't think about a better excuse to laugh with (and occasionally at) one of our favorite Boston boys.

And of course, he produced Entourage. Here's his cameo in the pilot episode.

Finally, I couldn't resist. Here's the classic Andy Samberg Saturday Night Live sketch in which he impersonates Mark Wahlberg… talking to animals. At the end of this clip, it segues into Mark confronting Andy about the impression.
