Actors turn down roles for a host of reasons, here are 10 deal breakers.
He was once a Calvin Klein underwear model, had his own workout video, and even played a bodybuilder in 2013 crime flick Pain & Gain, so it’s no surprise that Mark Wahlberg is proud of his buff bod and has no qualms about flaunting it.
However, in his new action film 2 Guns, which opens in Singapore on September 19, the beefcake actor is keeping his clothes on and leaving the flaunting to his co-star, two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington.
Mark quipped that his character, an undercover US naval intelligence officer, is constantly trying to hit on women - cheesy winks are his weapon of choice - but “never scores”, and that Denzel gets more action than him, romantically and physically.
In 2 Guns, Mark and Denzel go undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate to attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions. However, unbeknown to the other, each is working undercover for the US state, and they are forced on the run together after a bank heist gone wrong.
