Timeline of Mark Wahlberg Career

  • Mark Wahlberg, who was born in 1971 in Massachusetts, embarked on the early life of crime before joining brother Donnie into the music industry, gaining fame as rapist Marky Mark. In the 1990s, he turned to film, earning acclaim for his work in The Diaries of Basketball, Boogie Nights, and Three Kings. Wahlberg has been active in the Academy Award-winning movies The Departed and The Fighter and since then has regularly churned out supporting roles in such films as Transformer: Age of Extinction, Ted and Daddy's Home.
  • His father was of half Swedish and half Irish descent and his mother's ancestry is 11/16 Irish, 1/8 French-Canadian, 1/8 English and 1/6 Scottish. Mark's paternal grandfather, Axel Simon Wahlberg, was the son of Axel Gustaf Wahlberg and Ida Albertina Nordstrom, immigrants from Sweden. He is from a poor family background where his father is a delivery driver, and his mother works as a clerk to a nurse. It was hard for him to survive when their parents divorced and dropped out of school at 14 Wahlberg and began to make a living on the streets — hustling, stealing, and selling drugs. He hit rock bottom two years later when he was jailed for his role in a Vietnamese man's savage beating. His 45-day prison sentence was a self-proclaimed turning point for the 16-year-old; vowing to turn his life around, he also devoted himself to bodybuilding, chiseling his body into impressive shape.
  • By the time Wahlberg came out of prison, his older brother Donnie had rocked as one of five fresh-faced members of the New Kids on the Block pop band to stardom. Soon Donnie wanted to help his younger brother find their own niche in the music business.
  • What Mark Wahlberg lacked in the ability to sing, he made up for in charisma and good looks; he took on Marky Mark 's name and recorded a debut album, Music for the People (1991), with a DJ, backup dancers (called “the Funky Bunch”) and Donnie's help in producing it. The album went platinum, driven by the success of the hit singles “Good Vibrations” and “Wildside” — and by Marky Mark 's willingness to discard his clothes on stage and in his videos.
  • One of the hottest new assets in pop culture, Wahlberg (and his rock-hard physique) became even more popular when he signed a two year deal to model underwear for designer Calvin Klein. His raucous public profile — once involved in a much talked-about brawl with Madonna's entourage at a nightclub in Los Angeles — only helped to raise his mainstream popularity before reports of his criminal record and allegedly racist and homophobic views started to surface.
  • Following his appearance in a 1993 TV movie, The Substitute, Wahlberg made his big-screen debut in Penny Marshall's Renaissance Man (1994), playing one of a group of Army recruits taught by ex-advertising salesman Danny DeVito. His inherent screen presence led to his casting in his breakout role, that of Leonardo DiCaprio's drug-added best friend character in The Basketball Diaries (1995), a small-scale but acclaimed movie based on the memoir of his teenage struggles with heroin addiction by poet-musician Jim Carroll.
  • Following two more attention-getting roles in Fear (1996) and Traveller (1997), in Paul Thomas Anderson's buzzworthy Boogie Nights (1997), Wahlberg cemented his artistic and commercial popularity with a starring role as dishwasher turned porn star Eddie Adams (a.k.a. Dirk Diggler). While his next two movies — The Big Hit (1998) and The Corruptor (1999)—were less than good, Wahlberg returned to the acclaimed Three Kings (1999) with a bang. In the aftermath of the Gulf War in 1991, the film co-starred George Clooney, Ice Cube, and Spike Jonze as renegade U.S. servicemen in the Persian Gulf.
  • In 2000 Wahlberg re-teamed Clooney (and Diane Lane) in The Perfect Storm, an adaptation of Sebastian Junger's best-selling account of a boat filled with fishermen trapped in a North Atlantic killer storm. In late 2000, Wahlberg co-starred in the crime thriller The Yards with Joaquin Phoenix and James Caan. The next year, with Tim Roth and Helena Bonham Carter, he took on a headbanging part in Rock Star opposite Jennifer Aniston and the title role of a reboot of the classic Planet of the Apes.
  • In 2003 Wahlberg co-starred in the heist film The Italian Job with Charlize Theron, and then joined Lily Tomlin, Jude Law, Naomi Watts and Dustin Hoffman for the 2004 romantic comedy I Heart Huckabees. In 2006 Wahlberg received his first nomination for the Academy Award for his role on The Departed crime drama. Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon also starred in the Martin Scorsese film.
  • Two years after the 2008 thriller film “The Happening,” which was both critically and commercially a disappointment; he earned raves for his starting role in the gritty 2010 boxing film “The Fighter” where he helped to produce and the film was based on the life of boxer Micky Ward and nominated for Best Picture Film. In 2012 he starred with Seth MacFarlane in the hit comedy Ted and he played for it. He returned in 2013 with a challenging film dedicated to a real-life US army named “Lone Survivor.” So he starts doing in Transformers series; Age of Extinction (2014).
  • He has served on such TV shows as Entourage, In Treatment, and Boardwalk Empire as an executive producer. Wahlberg launched another small-screen project in 2014 which appeared on Wahlburgers as himself, along with brothers Donnie and Paul. The show, airing on A&E, focuses on (and takes its name from) the hamburger restaurant of the Wahlberg family in Hingham, Massachusetts, as well as the quirks and interactions between the brothers. From the beginning, the series received a warm reception, and continues to date.
