Andy Samberg Impressions - Mark Wahlberg

Join us as we learn about people who Andy Samberg does impressions of.

First up for us to get our daily dose of Hollywood celebrity gossip... is Mark Wahlberg.

We're heading to the Celebrity blog site, Wooden Spears, to get our fix.

How Tall is Mark Wahlberg?

Mark Wahlberg broke into the music scene as rapper Marky Mark in the early 90’s. His five foot eight inch height gained considerable notoriety then as a young man including a two year stint in prison for assault.

His early successes in the music business came through the help of brother Donnie, a member of the boy band group New Kids on the Block. His performances are often risqué, where he is usually bare-chested showing off his well muscled body and strips down to his white briefs while rubbing the front portion of his body. His physique though won him an advertising campaign for Calvin Klein underwear. This then opened doors for him to the movie business and has appeared to have dissociated himself from rap music.

His first acting stint was in “The Renaissance Man” but he got noticed for his work in “The Basketball Diaries” and “Fear. He has also played the role of Dirk Diggler in “Boogie Nights” , Detective Danny Wallace in “The Corrruptor”, Troy Barlow in “Three Kings” and most recently, as Tommy Corn in “I ♥ Huckabees” and Bobby Mercer in “Four Brothers”.


The site also has all the other celebrity gossip, including Paris Hilton gossip.

How Much Does Mark Wahlberg Weigh?

If you remember Mark Wahlberg as the guy dropping pants in Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, then you know that he’s a rare breed of Hollywood actor because of his transition from the music industry to the silverscreen, let alone his showbiz career as a generally laughable “icon” of all things over the top during the early 90’s to a well respected actor at the turn of the century and beyond.

The kid who [turned down the gig] for the New Kids on the Block (the spot went to his brother Donnie) weighs around 160-205 pounds depending on whether he’s making a film or he’s just kicking back. If you’d like to know how much Mark Wahlberg weighs at the moment, your best bet is to check what movie he’s filming for and what kind of role he’s playing, and you’d generally get an idea of what kind of bulk he’s trying to put on (or put off) for that role.

When you said the part about Mark Wahlberg not making the cut for New Kids on the Block, he was a very qualified musician. It was his choice to turn down the spot in the band after it was offered to him. Donnie was the one who recommended Mark take the last spot, which was later filled by Joey McIntyre.
