Famous figures from Dorchester
The former bad-boy rapper known as Marky-Mark who did jail time for an assault at age 16 is now a movie and TV production powerhouse. In addition to Entourage, he and production partner Stephen Levinson executive produce How to Make It in America, Boardwalk Empire, and In Treatment.
When I met him he was a 26-year-old mumbling kid from Dorchester who was coming right off of Boogie Nights and he was slouching down on the couch, said director David O. Russell, who also worked with Wahlberg on Three Kings and I Heart Huckabees. Now I call him Godfather because hes literally got a boardwalk empire and a television empire."
