Watch 'Inside the Actors Studio' this Sunday 7:00 pm only on PIX

MUMBAI: He has gone from platinum recording success as Marky Mark, to billboards over Broadway as a model, to a growing acclaim as an actor in films such as Fear, Boogie Nights, which earned him a Screen Actors Guild nomination, Three Kings, Planet Of The Apes, Rock Star, The Truth About Charlie, The Italian Job and many more. People Magazine has named him one of The Fifty Most Beautiful People in the World and he is none other than Mark Wahlberg.

Watch out for a breath taking episode of Inside the Actors Studio this Sunday 7:00pm as Monk D, as he is popularly called, reveals himself only on PIX…

Before he started acting, Wahlberg was best known as Marky Mark, the pants-dropping rapper who attained fame and notoriety with his music group The Funky Bunch which debuted on "The Arsenio Hall Show" in the early 90's

He was originally cast as Linus Caldwell in Ocean's Eleven but dropped out and the part was played by Matt Damon

Has a tattoo of Bob Marley on his left shoulder

He was a member of the boy group "New Kids on the Block", but left the band before they were famous

Often has a tough time getting his friends to enjoy his movies, because many of them only appreciate his work when it includes violence and nude women

When asked about his education: "I dropped out of school when I was 13, I couldn't legally quit without my parents' permission until I was 16. But 13 was pretty much it. You know. Instead of school I would sell drugs, and have a job, because I wanted to have nice things. I wanted to have a car."

Mark Wahlberg is mentioned in the opening words of Eminem's song "Drug Ballad" ("Back when Mark Wahlberg was Marky Mark...")

He was scheduled to be on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001; however, he changed his plans at the last minute, and drove from Boston to New York with some friends

He said in one of the featurettes in The Italian Job DVD that he thought about doing the movie because it was going to be his third remake in a row after The Truth about Charlie and Planet of the Apes

Get ready to enjoy your Sunday evening with an interesting episode of Inside the Actors Studio with Mark Wahlberg at 7:00pm on PIX.
