Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg (born June 25, 1971) is an American entertainer, now known primarily as an actor. He first came to fame as the younger brother of Donnie Wahlberg[?] of the New Kids on the Block. After his brother's bubblegum pop group ended, Mark began recording as Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch, earning a hit with "Good Vibrations" from Music for the People[?]. His second LP, You Gotta Believe[?], was a relative failure. In the next few years, Wahlberg was seen most prominently in a series of underwear ads from Calvin Klein[?]. He then began an acting career, earning extremely positive reviews.
