From Marky Mark to Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg began his career as a rapper with his group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch in 1990. Their debut single, Good Vibrations, is charted on the Billboard Hot 100. The success continued with Wildside peaking at number 10.
Three years later, Mark turned to act and debuted with The Substitute, still credited as Marky Mark. It wasn’t until he landed on the first big-screen role that he used his actual name, Mark Wahlberg, instead.
He continued to play supporting roles for another three years until he finally got his first leading role for Fear in 1996.
Mark later appeared in critically acclaimed Boogie Nights, Three Kings, and The Perfect Storm. He produced his first TV show in 2004 with HBO Entourage.
For the following years, Mark continued to appear in numerous movies, such as Shooter, The Happening, and Max Payne. He also starred in the successful comedy movie Ted. However, despite the movie’s success, Mark admitted that he initially doubted it would go well.
“When you hear about it, for the first time, it sounds absurd,” Mark said in an interview. “There’s no good way to pitch it. It’s ridiculous,” he continued.
It must be a relief to know that the movie did well, so much that fans demanded a sequel!
Mark continued his success with Ted by starring in a movie adaptation of Navy SEAL Marcus Lutrell’s book, Lone Survivor. He also starred in two other semi-documentary movies, Deepwater Horizon and Patriots Day.
Mark returned to his seat as a producer for a reality show entitled Breaking Boston, which unfortunately was canceled after one week of its release. He also produced one episode of the Wahlburgers TV series, which is a series created to promote the Wahlberg brothers’ burger chain.
He produced his first movie, Mile 22.

Mark purchased his first house in 2001. The $4.95 million home was located in Beverly Hills and was sold in 2018 for $12.4 million.
Later, after getting married to model Rhea Durham, the couple purchased an undeveloped lot in Beverly Park for $8.25 million. They later hired the infamous architect Richard Landry to design and build a 30,000 square foot house. The construction was reportedly worth more than $20 million.
