MARK WAHLBERG RUMORS

NFL refutes Mark Wahlberg’s claim Roger Goodell tried to meddle with ‘Ballers’

In the annals of TV shows and movies that understandably earn the scorn of the NFL (Playmakers, League of Denial and Concussion), you wouldn’t think HBO’s Ballers would be high on the last.

Mark Wahlberg: Brady Should Stick To Football, Not Politics

Tom Brady in politics? Not so fast. The New England Patriots quarterback definitely has the art of football down, as witnessed by his four Super Bowl rings. And, he’s not so bad at the acting thing either, considering his brief appearance in Mark Wahlberg’s movie, Ted 2. Also a friend of republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, Brady has previously spoken up on his...

Mark Wahlberg Tries to Steal Tom Brady's Semen in Trailer for Ted 2

The first Ted movie was pretty darn funny although I will say that the best parts were all shown in the commercials and trailers. Hopefully that will not be the case the second time around, but what they showed in the trailer that debuted during the Super Bowl was pretty damn funny.Apparently Ted and his girlfriend want to have a kid but since he's a stuffed animal he needs a sperm...
