Mark Wahlberg reveals that he was almost cast in Star Trek

Exclusive: The tough-guy actor talks sci-fi


We caught up with Mark Wahlberg to chat Broken City recently (look out for the full feature later this week).

In the meantime, we couldn’t wait to share a particularly juicy extract from the interview, when we asked Wahlberg about the biggest film news of the year: J.J. Abrams directing Star Wars: Episode VII.

Much to our surprise, Wahlberg said that he almost landed a key role in Abrams’ Star Trek reboot before backing out.

Watch the video clip below to find out what Wahlberg had to say:



Broken City opens in the UK on 1 March 2013.
