Mark Wahlberg: I don't mind playing an old guy

Wahlberg, who was originally cast as the lead in Uncharted, will now play the father of the protagonist (Tom Holland)

Published: 06th July 2020

Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg believes actors need to accept getting old and pick roles which suit their age. The actor was signed as the lead in Uncharted a decade ago, but the movie was never made. He is now set to star as the father of Tom Holland, who plays main character, and says he finds it weird when older guys are paired opposite much younger women.

''There are certain people who try to hold on to youth and you have these kinds of weird movies where older guys are paired up with younger actresses, and we all know how unfair that is. I'm more driven now than ever before and I'm also more comfortable in my own skin," said Wahlberg in an interview to a magazine.

Sony Pictures' Uncharted is based on the PlayStation video game series that follows the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake, to be portrayed by Holland. Wahlberg will play Nathan's father Victor Sullivan.

The film, to be directed by Ruben Fleischer, is scheduled for release next year.
