Mark Wahlberg has become one of the most sought after actors in the business recently, so it was no surprise when it was announced that he was cast as the lead in the Michael Bay movie Transformers 4. Mark says that he is really looking forward to making the movie but says that it is the biggest challenge of his acting career to date.
Wahlberg explained, “I think it will be the most challenging role that I've played and it's an opportunity for me to do something extremely different. It's going to be very different from what the first ones were. I'm excited about it. When I talked to (producer) Steven Spielberg and Michael and said, 'Don't worry guys, this is not me taking a paycheck and running with it. This is me trying to do something different.”
Mark also went on to talk about how his children felt about the fact that he would be starring in Transformers 4, “It's the first time they've ever been excited about me going off to do a movie, and they demand to be in it,” he added.
While Mark Wahlberg will be seen in the currently untitled Transformers sequel on June 27, 2014, he has another movie set to hit the big screen this year. Mark Wahlberg will star alongside Dwayne Johnson in the movie Pain & Gain, which is set to be released on April 26 in the US and on May 3 in the UK.
