With the help of his brother Donnie, himself a member of the New Kids on the Block, the bad boy became the singer of the hip-hop group Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch. Two well-received albums later, the handsome boy becomes in 1992 the star-model of the fashion designer Calvin Klein who seduces all the American teens. He tried his hand at movies in 1994, landing a role in Operation Shakespeare, but had to wait until 1997 and his performance as a porn star in Boogie Nights to break through. He is not the kind of person who locks himself in a register and thus alternates between action films and big budget films alongside the sexy George Clooney (The Desert Kings – 1999, In the middle of the storm -2000) or under the direction of Tim Burton (The Planet of the Apes -2001), auteur cinema (The Yards – 2000), comedies (I love Huckabees, Crazy Night -2010, Very bad Cops -2010), remakes (The Truth About Charlie -2002, Italian Heist -2003), Four Brothers -2005), dramas (Lovely Bones -2010)… He gets two nominations: In 2006, for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor (The Departed, by Martin Scorsese) and in 2010, for the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Dramatic Film, thanks to his acclaimed performance as a boxer in The Fighter, by David O. Russell’s The Fighter. The actor also produced the successful series Entourage, inspired by his experience as a young actor climbing the ladder in Hollywood, in which he also makes recurring appearances. At the end of July 2012, he inaugurated his star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame Boulevard, in Los Angeles. In October 2012, his first role in the comedy of the crazy Seth MacFarlane, alongside a large teddy bear that comes to life, addicted to beer and easy girls, surprises but amuses.On the private side, the dark-haired married on August 1, 2009 the American model Rhea Durham.
