Whither the Funky Bunch?

I’ve interviewed Mark Wahlberg three times over the past two decades, during which time he turned into an movie star and improbably complex screen presence. (He’s playing the lead in this week’s new M. Night Shyamalan joint, The Happening.) The first interview was back in 1991, when he was still the frequently-shirtless rapper known as Marky Mark. The third one was last year, when he was nominated for an Oscar for his role in The Departed. This is the second (and I think most entertaining) of our conversations, from 2005. Topics of conversation include Four Brothers, Entourage, and Harvey Weinstein. Wahlberg’s final three sentences in this piece may have the highest use of profanity, percentage-wise, of any interview I’ve ever done.
