Mark Wahlberg: Are You Ready For Some Football?

Posted by Fara Kearnes on August 24, 2006 4:16 PM |

Mark Wahlberg picMark Wahlberg stars in a new film about football even though he lied to the producers about playing the game in order to land the role. "I lied. I said I played college football. Obviously, I'd never even gone to college!"

And had the producers been fans of rapper Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch in the 90s, they would have known that bit of trivia.

"I never played high school football, but you know, I played football in the neighborhood," Mark says. "I played every sport, but we never played with equipment. The first time I ever put on equipment was an NFL uniform, which was pretty cool!"

Yes, Mark Wahlberg and this movie were made for each other. The film is based on the true story of Vince Papale, a man who went from being a part-time bartender to hero playing for the Philadelphia Eagles back in the 70s.

Papale, a 30-year-old bartender, was broke after losing his teaching job. His beloved team, the Eagles, had experienced a decade of losing and were ready to try anything. Coach Dick Vermeil called for open try outs and Papale attends the session on a whim. Much to everyone's surprise, he makes the team, and ends up playing for the Eagles for three years.

The film, which also stars Greg Kinnear as Dick Vermeil, opens Friday, August 25, in wide release.
