Happy 40th Birthday, Mark Wahlberg! See Him Through the Years (PHOTOS)

By: / June 5, 2011

Today we’d love to give a special shout-out to birthday boy, Mark Wahlberg. Can you believe he’s 40?!

Mark has made quite an impact on pop culture from his famous rap career with the band Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to his leading roles in Boogie Nights, The Italian Job, I Heart Huckabees, The Departed and The Fighter. (And with imitation being the highest form of flattery, who can ever forget Andy Samberg‘s hilarious impersonation during Saturday Night Live?!)

We can’t wait to see what’s next for Mark, and we’re feeling some good vibrations that he’ll have a great year. Take a look back at the rapper-turned actor through the years — and Mark, if you’re reading this: “Say hi to your mother for me.”
