Mark Wahlberg to Play Steve Austin. What? I Said “Mark Wahlberg to…” What?



I think I’d rather have seen Kevin Smith’s version.

The director and star of Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg, who presumably bonded over their shared usage of the German word “berg,” meaning mountain, are now making The Six Billion Dollar Man together (millions aren’t enough these days).

Berg was presumably chosen for his affinity for slow-motion, as used every few minutes in Lone Survivor. Wahlberg was presumably chosen because he says yes to almost anything.

Now we anxiously await the casting of Bigfoot.
