As for Wahlberg, remember him back in the Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch hip-hop days? Remember what he started doing onstage? He'd finish a song and drop his pants, standing in his drawers as a commercial for Calvin Klein underwear. What about Scorcese's THE DEPARTED, the film that brought Mark Wahlberg an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor of 2006 -- didn't a character hold up a dildo in that crime thriller? Then there are the comedies that Mark Wahlberg did with a potty-mouth stuffed bear, TED (2012) and TED 2 (2015). I wonder if Cardinal Cupich saw those.
Mark Wahlberg needs to relax with the Catholic shame, in my opinion. As an actor, he's got nothing to be ashamed of in BOOGIE NIGHTS. It's an exceptional film. I wish I'd had the opportunity to act in a film that good. If I had, I would've taken my rosary to Sunday mass to say prayers of thanks.
