Mark Wahlberg was not always the serious Hollywood A-lister the world has come to know him as. Once upon a time, he was the headlinger of the hip-hop group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. Their single "Good Vibrations" was produced by Mark's brother Donnie, of New Kids on the Block fame, and topped the Billboard Top 100. But when his music career began to flounder, Mark then tried his hand at modelling. The buff boy bore almost all in the provacative Calvin Klein ads that gained him international fame. Then in 1994, Mark changed careers again and finally found his groove on the silver screen. Since then, Mark has starred in films such as Basketball Diaries, Boogie Nights, Three Kings, The Perfect Storm and The Departed. Mark once again showed off a new talent by becoming the executive producer of Entourage, a smash hit which loosley portrays the story of Mark's life. In 2009, Mark married his on-again-off-again girlfriend Rhea Durham, with whom he has three children.
