Well, now we know what makes Marky Mark “all warm in the pants.”
Try a crowd of thousands of young fans at Comic-Con rapt with attention over his upcoming action thriller “Max Payne.“
Surprising too, considering that outside of the “Tomb Raider” movies, video game adaptations typically yield limited success.
“Max Payne” dares to throw its hat in the treacherous ring, though, with some popular actors in the lead roles: Mila Kunis, Ludacris and Mark Wahlberg.
Along with director John Moore, all were on hand for the movie’s panel. And the crowd’s reaction made Mark Wahlberg, in his own words, “all warm in the pants.”
Coming off of roles in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “The Happening,” respectively (and for Wahlberg, finishing up “The Lovely Bones”), Mila and Mark were both gung-ho about doing an all-out actioner.
Mila says she’s a gamer. Mark was just ready to “break some heads.”
Ludacris inspired loud applause, and got a lot of love from Wahlberg, who praised the rapper’s commitment, not only to the project, but to acting in general.
