Mark Wahlberg gets Walk of Fame Star




Mark Wahlberg has joined the list of celebrities with the 2,414th star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.


Will Ferrell, who co-starts with Wahlberg in the upcoming flick “The Other Guys,” introduced Wahlberg during the ceremony, joking: “I first became a fan of his from his workout videos. And I loved him in the ‘Bourne’ movies.”


During his acceptance speech, Wahlberg thanked “all the people gutsy enough to put me in movies.”


Wahlberg’s film debut came in Penny Marshall’s “Renaissance Man.” He is known for his roles in such films as “Boogie Nights,” “The Perfect Storm,” “The Italian Job” and “The Departed.” His role in “The Departed” earned the actor an Oscar nomination.


“The Other Guys” opens in theaters August 6.
