For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to flip back from last weeks’s old school pick and take a look at a more modern A-lister, and this one happens to be Mark Wahlberg. He can be easy to make fun of at times, especially if he’s in a silly type of film like this week’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, but one can’t forget that he’s a two time Academy Award nominee and he’s one of the savvier actors in Hollywood. He’s as in touch with his audience as anyone and one of the seemingly more genuine people in the business. That can go a long way for someone like Wahlberg, who has pretty much as bright a future as a current A-lister can have. Wahlberg has done way more in the business than many realize. Once again, just look at the filmmakers he’s worked with. »
