Mark Wahlberg (born June 25, 1971) is an American entertainer, now known primarily as an actor. He first came to fame as the younger brother of Donnie Wahlberg of the New Kids on the Block. After his brother's bubblegum pop group ended, Mark began recording as Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch, earning a hit with "Good Vibrations" from Music for the People. His second LP, You Gotta Believe, was a relative failure. In the next few years, Wahlberg was seen most prominently in a series of underwear ads from Calvin Klein. He then began an acting career, earning extremely positive reviews in movies like Boogie Nights, Three Kings, and The Perfect Storm.
