MARK WAHLBERG (Michael "Stig" Stigman) earned both Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for his standout work in the family boxing biopic The Fighter and Martin Scorsese's acclaimed drama The Departed. Wahlberg has enjoyed playing diverse characters for visionary filmmakers such as David O. Russell, Tim Burton and Paul Thomas Anderson. His breakout role in Boogie Nights established Wahlberg as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents.

He later headlined Three Kings and The Perfect Storm, 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 The Yards director James Gray and co-star Joaquin Phoenix in We Own the Night, which he also produced. Other projects include The Happening, Max Payne, The Lovely Bones, Date Night and The Other Guys. He most recently starred in Allen Hughes' Broken City, with Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta- Jones; Seth MacFarlane's Ted; Baltasar Kormakur's Contraband, with Kate Beckinsale; and Michael Bay's Pain & Gain, with Dwayne Johnson. Next, Wahlberg can be seen in Peter Berg's Lone Survivor.

Also an accomplished film and television producer, Wahlberg has received a Peabody Award, two Oscar nominations, two Golden Globe nominations and five Primetime Emmy nominations. In addition to Broken City, Contraband, The Fighter and We Own the Night, Wahlberg is executive producer of the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.
