‘Invincible’ Wahlberg is a busy man
From Boston Globe

Quote:
Last night fans were lining up outside New York's Ziegfeld Theater for the red carpet opening of ``Invincible," starring Boston's Mark Wahlberg as Vince Papale, a Philadelphia Eagles fan who went to an open tryout for the team and then played three seasons in the NFL. Also expected at the premiere for the movie that opens in theaters tomorrow is Wahlberg's costar, Pittsfield native Elizabeth Banks. But over on Martha's Vineyard yesterday, planning continued for this weekend's "Pillow Fight -- Send a Child to Camp" benefit for The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation and Lorraine Bracco and Penny Marshall's The Felix Organization/Adoptees For Children. Whether Wahlberg will attend is still up in the air as he makes the rounds promoting "Invincible." One of the auction items comic Lenny Clarke will offer up is a voice- mail greeting by Bracco sounding like her character Dr. Melfi in "The Sopranos" on the winning bidder's phone. Lenny's wife, Jennifer Clarke, will perform with cohost Darryl "DMC" McDaniel at the event. Also hosting is Sheila Jaffe, the casting director of "The Sopranos" and "Entourage," who, like McDaniel, was adopted and now raises money for organizations that assist children in transition.
