In this de facto, if far from de jure, latest iteration of the Ted franchise, Mark Wahlberg once again forms a strange, almost inexplicable bond with a supernatural creature who tests him in a number of painful, problematic ways. However – surprise! – instead of a stuffed teddy bear that’s come to life, this time the agent of chaos is God himself, that omnipresent, omniscient, all-powerful scamp. God first makes the life of Wahlberg’s Stuart Long hard by taking away his little brother via a sudden death when they are little kids, and then giving him a nature that gets him into trouble throughout his life, keeping him from finding a vocation until he finally Finds a Vocation, ie the desire to become a priest.
Mark Wahlberg is a man of many talents but is widely recognized for his muscle-bound physique and acting abilities. In a recent video shared on Instagram, Wahlberg showed off his ripped abs as he celebrated Cinco de Mayo weekend. Wahlberg, once known as ‘Marky Mark’ in the 1990s, amassed popularity...
While celebrating someone close to his heart, Mark Wahlberg took to his Instagram account to share a special tribute to his mom Alma Walhberg on what would have been her 80th birthday. “Happy b day mommy!! Miss you so much,” Mark Wahlberg declared in his post, which features a snapshot...
It looks like Mark Wahlberg’s love of golf and love of partying go hand in hand, as he proved on social media. On a video posted to his official Instagram account, The Boogie Nights star celebrated Cinco De Mayo with an indoor game of virtual golf, while “Middle Child” by J.Cole echoed in the background. (It seems like Mark is still connected to his hip-hop roots!)
The film is based on the real-life story of a Montana boxer turned Catholic priest Stuart Long.
DALLAS (KDAF) — Mark Wahlberg was in town to chat with us about his new movie, which is based on the true story of a boxer turned priest, Stuart Long. It’s about a lost soul who finds his purpose through the church. “Father Stu” starring Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, Jacki Weaver and Teresa Ruiz is out now in theatres.
Mark Wahlberg remembered his late mom, Alma Wahlberg, in a sweet post earlier today. She died around this time last year at the age of 78. In the past year, Mark Wahlberg has shared several throwback pictures of his mom. We’ve seen her at all stages of life, in some pics with Wahlberg and his siblings, and some without. In this most recent picture, we see Alma posing with a woman who isn’t tagged or described by Mark. He simply captioned the post with two heart emojis.
Although he has been publicly open about his religious views, Mark Wahlberg says he doesn’t “force” his Catholic faith on his children. While promoting his new film “Father Stu” on “Today,” Mark Wahlberg says he approaches the impart of his Catholic faith to his children by more of a living it than mandating it. “They think dad’s crazy. And he’s boring. But even with my faith, I don’t force it on them. But they know that dad can’t start the day without being in prayer. Can’t start the day without reading my Scripture or going to Mass.”

Interview: Actor/Producer Mark Wahlberg on Discovering the Story of Father Stu and Finding the Time and Team to Make the Movie
Since we’ll be focusing on a film about a spiritual man, I’ll open this interview with a confession: I did this interview so long ago that I basically forgot to transcribe, edit, and get it ready to publication. So here we are, a couple of weeks late. But it’s still good material for such a relatively short conversation between me and Mark Wahlberg, the star and producer of Father Stu. The film is the real-life story of Stuart Long, a boxer-turned-actor-turned-priest who inspired countless people during his journey from self-destruction to redemption, with a whole lot of obstacles, including a crippling illness, in his way. And as much as the movie feels like Wahlberg perhaps trying to make up for some bad behaviors early in his own life, his very clear passion for this story and person is so evident that Father Stu rises above your usual faith-based material. It doesn’t quite get to the level of Inspirational, but it’s still a fascinating journey that includes as much humor as pathos, and more four-letter words than either I or the faith-based journalists I saw this movie with were expecting.
Father Stu actor Mark Wahlberg is reaching out to fans and asking them to find “peace” through prayer. The 50-year-old Oscar nominee is a devout Catholic who has always been open to sharing his faith in Hollywood. And recently, he partnered with the prayer and meditation app called Hallow. The IOS and Google-based program is the number one Catholic app in the world.
