Mark Goes Shirtless!
Mark Wahlberg & his fam hit the beach.
In a little over two decades, Mark Wahlberg has gone from hunky Funky Bunch member to a full fledged Hollywood leading man.

Mark came right out of the gate with a flawless physique that in flaunted in the early ’90s under the alter ego of Marky Mark. He then transformed his image into a more serious actor, but still showed off his abs in such movies as Boogie Nights and Fear.

 Now at age 40, The Fighter star has been spotted shirtless on the set of his new film Pain and Gain looking as buff as he did when he first came on the scene. 

To honor the actor’s shirtless transformation from Marky Mark to Mark Wahlberg, Celebuzz has put together a gallery of these infamous abs.

As mentioned, Mark has been hard at work shooting the action-packed thriller Pain and Gain — which also stars Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock” and is directed by Transformers heavyweight Michael Bay — and is set for a 2013 release. The premise of the movie involves a pair of bodybuilders in Florida [who] get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.
