MARK WAHLBERG (Billy Taggart, Producer) earned Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for his standout work in the family boxing bio-pic THE FIGHTER, and for Martin Scorsese's acclaimed drama THE DEPARTED. Wahlberg has enjoyed playing diverse characters for visionary filmmakers such as David O. Russell, Tim Burton, Paul Thomas Anderson and Martin Scorsese. His breakout role in BOOGIE NIGHTS established Wahlberg as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents.
Wahlberg's remarkable film career began with Penny Marshall's RENAISSANCE MAN, and THE BASKETBALL DIARIES with Leonardo DiCaprio, followed by a star turn opposite Reese Witherspoon in the thriller FEAR. He later headlined THREE KINGS and THE PERFECT STORM, both with George Clooney, and THE ITALIAN JOB with Charlize Theron. Wahlberg then starred in the football biopic INVINCIBLE with Greg Kinnear, and SHOOTER, based on the best-selling novel POINT OF IMPACT. He reunited with director James Gray (with whom Wahlberg had worked on THE YARDS) and co-star Joaquin Phoenix in WE OWN THENIGHT, which Wahlberg also produced. Other projects include THE HAPPENING, MAX PAYNE, THE LOVELY BONES, DATE NIGHT and THE OTHER GUYS. Last year he starred in CONTRABAND with Kate Beckinsale and in Seth MacFarlane's hit comedy TED. Upcoming are director Michael Bay's PAIN & GAIN, and TWO GUNS opposite Denzel Washington.
Also an accomplished film and television producer, Wahlberg has received a Golden Globe Award, a Peabody Award, two Oscar nominations, ten Golden Globe nominations and five Emmy nominations. In addition to his behind the scenes work on BROKEN CITY, CONTRABAND, THE FIGHTER and WE OWN THE NIGHT, Wahlberg is executive producer of the HBO series BOARDWALK EMPIRE, ENTOURAGE, IN TREATMENT and HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA.
A committed philanthropist, he founded The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation in 2001 to benefit inner city children and teens.
