Actor Mark Wahlberg says his career will end “sooner rather than later” and plans to be more mindful when choosing future roles.
Actor Mark Wahlberg says he would rather retire sooner than later. Wahlberg rose to fame as rapper Marky Mark before embarking on his acting career. He spent the late 80s and early 90s leading Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch, creating several successful songs such as “Good Vibrations”. Wahlberg later turned his attention to acting and became known for his roles in films such as Planet of the Apes and Ted. Most recently, the actor was seen in the role of Victor Sullivan in Uncharted alongside Tom Holland.
Recently, other actors have made similar statements that they are leaving the cinema. Bruce Willis announced his retirement through his daughter Rumer Willis last month, after sharing his aphasic diagnosis with his supporters. Likewise, Jim Carey told fans that he finished the game after Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was completed, and decided to live a “quiet life” if a special role failed to persuade him to return to the game.
Following in his footsteps, Wahlberg told Entertainment News that he is considering ending his career. While Wahlberg isn’t quite ready to give up his career just yet, given his four children, Wahlberg says his retirement is coming. Wahlberg says his future roles should satisfy him to encourage him to accept them. Acting regularly takes the actor away from home, partly the reason for this decision. Read Wahlberg’s full quote below:
Sooner rather than later, probably… There has to be something special to really make me leave the house, leave those guys behind, because that’s probably the biggest sacrifice in the making.
Despite taking short breaks, Wahlberg has been acting steadily since the early 1990s. The actor has been busy working on several projects in a row for the past few years, which is probably eating up his free time and keeping him away from his family. His current movie “Father Stu” is especially important to the actor because of his Catholic faith, giving fans an idea of which projects Wahlberg will devote more attention to as his career progresses.
As with any job, it is inevitable that someone will eventually want to retire, although given that Wahlberg is only 50, this is happening sooner than expected. Although Wahlberg is considering retiring, he has several upcoming projects. Currently, the actor plays the main role in the film “Our Man from Jersey” and is waiting for the start of shooting the film “The Six Billion Dollar Man”. With this in mind, it looks like Wahlberg isn’t saying goodbye to acting just yet, but will definitely do so in the future.
