First Look: Mark Wahlberg Lost 60 Pounds For "The Gambler" Thriller

First Look: Mark Wahlberg Lost 60 Pounds For "The Gambler" ThrillerSubmit Comment
Thanks to USA Today, we now have the first photos from the upcoming "The Gambler" thriller, starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) from a script by William Monahan (The Departed). Check out the photos below.

In the film, Wahlberg plays a college professor with a serious gambling addiction that gets him in trouble with local gangsters. For the role, Wahlberg lost a whopping 60 pounds after "Transformers: Age of Extinction."

"Forget losing the weight. Being believable as a teacher was one of my greatest challenges and most rewarding," Wahlberg explained. "It meant being able to have the comfort to really understand and say those words."

Obviously the actor would like to forget about "The Happening," in which he already played a teacher. That weight loss is enough evidence to show that Wahlberg loves "The Gambler." "My character is in every scene, but during the 12-hour days over six months I was on fire," he added. "You prepare your whole life for a part like this. I was living on adrenaline."

"The Gambler" is set to hit theaters on December 19th.

Have to admire him for this, crazy to crash lose all that weight, but it's worked wonders for Bale, Leto & McConaughey!

Is that Mark Wahlberg or Mark Wahlberg looking like Jesse Eisenberg/Nick Cave ... or maybe Mark just looks like Dark17 after a case of the clap he got from his skanky wife.

Nice to know that Wahlberg looks older than Jessica Lange in that photo ... or Dark17's mum after whoring herself out for years at a time.

So Marky Mark's biggest challenge was to "understand and say words." As a teacher. How f*cking retarded is this prick? Can he not feel the vibration?

Marky Mark another famous gambler once said, "you've got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em, and know when to walk away." It's time for you to walk away so get the f*ck out and go make some more sh*tty Transformer movies. They have fewer words for you to say. Or you can always go back to blinding little old Vietnamese men in Boston in one of their eyes with a stick. Racially motivated hate crimes seem just your dumb ass speed. You should have retired after Departed and went out on a high point. Please don't sic your Backstreet Boy brother on me.
