Yet, regardless of who Wahlberg is collaborating with, he firmly believes the roles he is best suited to play are those that allow him to swear like a sailor!
Wahlberg told BANG Showbiz: "When we are playing roles that call for s***-talking, I feel I'm pretty good. So that's my comfort zone right there. That's why I was hired to play [this] part and be able to do it."
Since Wahlberg didn't have the easiest life, perhaps it is fitting that the actor feels a connection to the hard man roles that require him to talk trash?
No one appears to intimidate Wahlberg and he has revealed what it was like working with the Oscar-winning actors.
Wahlberg explained: "I have the utmost respect for Denzel and Jack Nicholson. I think we're talking about two of the greatest living actors that I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to work with those guys."
"For me, I don't get intimated by it... I get excited about it because I know from working with people that are that great, that I get the chance to be that much better myself."
We will get to watch Wahlberg on screen quite a bit in the future, because as well as 2 Guns, he's also starred in another dark action comedy alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in director Michael Bay's Pain & Gain, and will reunite again with the director for 2014's Transformers 4.
