Mark Wahlberg to Star in Cop Comedy with a Twist ‘Partners’

Mark Wahlberg has signed on to star in New Line Cinema's buddy cop comedy Partners. The actor is no stranger to the genre, having starred in 2010's unconventional cop movie, The Other Guys, but this project is said to turn the genre on its ear. There will be no "bromance" between these cops in Partners, but quite the opposite.

The story centers on an LAPD detective (Mark Wahlberg) who has a one-night stand with a beautiful woman. He soon discovers that this woman is actually a high-ranking FBI agent, who is his new boss on a high-profile case. The project has been compared to the 2005 action thriller blockbuster Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Partners is set to feature a number of huge action set pieces.

First ‘Ted 2’ Clip: Wahlberg Schools Seyfried on the Law

We just haven't seen enough from Ted 2 yet! And it's only a few months away from hitting theater screens across the country this summer. But that all changes courtesy of the MTV Movie Awards, which has just debuted the first clip from the anticipated sequel. We also get to see Mark Wahlberg introducing this sneak peek while at a mini-golf course, as he torments his MTV host with the ball, trying to stuff it in his mouth.

The clip itself features both Mark Wahlberg and Ted, voiced once again by writer and director Seth MacFarlane. It also introduces a new character played by incoming love interest Amanda Seyfried. John Bennett and Ted have sought out the help of a lawyer, and the duo quickly spiral into a riff-off on law terminology. While the clip itself is somewhat short, we do get a sense of what we can expect from this follow-up to the 2012 smash hit Ted.

‘The Gambler’ Digital HD Preview with Mark Wahlberg | EXCLUSIVE

‘The Gambler’ Digital HD Preview with Mark Wahlberg | EXCLUSIVE

In Paramount's The Gambler, Mark Wahlberg plays Jim Bennett, a professor by day and a degenerate gambler by night, who continues to rack up more and more debt from his illicit hobby. Today we have an exclusive preview where the star reveals he wanted to take on one of his toughest scenes in the movie first, a 10-page lecture where he discusses William Shakespeare with his class. The actor explains that filmmaker Rupert Wyatt was surprised by his choice to tackle this dialogue-heavy scene right away, but the actor says that he learned a trick from his time on The Fighter, where they got the most physical scenes done as soon as possible.

We also hear from Brie Larson, who plays one of Bennett's students Amy. She reveals that Mark Wahlberg must have done that scene over 100 times, over the first two days of production, and watching him work was like "acting 101" because every take was different and unique. Director Rupert Wyatt goes onto say that Mark knew that scene in his sleep, despite how complex it was. The plot follows Bennett, who is leading a secret double life as a high-stakes gambler. When Jim is forced to borrow money from a notorious gangster, he places the lives of those he loves in mortal danger. With time running out, he must enter the criminal underworld and risk everything to keep from losing it all.
