I effing loved Will Ferrell in ‘Anchor Man’. And I loved Mark Wahlberg in ‘The Departed’. And somehow mixing the silly slapstick, semi-mentally challenged, definitely comedic eroticism that is Wills’ forte, with the extreme seriousness that Mark has gone for in his movies as well as his public persona, seems to have hit the bulls-eye with their new move ‘The Other Guys’.
Its just that, every time I think of Mark, I expect for him to talk in that extra soft, Dirk Diggler voice “Yeah baby, you like that, you want it, ok I’ll give you some.” It actually freaks me out to see interviews where he is using that extra manly voice to show everyone just how serious he is as an actor, and why no one should ever refer to him has Marky-EFFING-Mark AGAIN!
The proof is in the pudding ladies and gents. Here we have Mark “Serious as F*ck” Whalberg, continuing to keep it real, picking up his kid from karate practice, while the numbers keep rollin’ in showing how these other guys are making ‘Inception’ their bitch. Bam! Leather in yo’ mouf!!!
