Ok ladies (and gents, if there are any of them here)... I watched the HBO show... actually I missed the first 5 minutes or so because I was stuck in traffic, can you believe that! Anyway, it was quite good, they didn't show too many clips from the film (the ones they did show looked awesome!) but they had some scenes of the filming, and interviews with the cast including Mark. He said that there were a couple of times when he got so emotional about the movie and about what actually happened to those guys that he broke down and cried. They also spoke to the families of the men who died and one guy (I think it was the brother of Bobby Shatford, the character Mark plays) was talking about what a "sweetheart" Mark is.

Gee... only 8 more days left until the premiere!

Hi Cathy!
I thought Mark said something about crying on set because he was just too darn miserable! And the director looked at him and went "Wow!"... but Mark replied "it wasn't an accident!"

Remember the part where Mark was helping the locals out on some occasion, checking IDs at the door at Crow's Nest? Somebody walked in and asked "where is Mark Wahlberg?" and the producer went up to him/her and said "He just checked your ID at the door!"

Alright! Enough for now!

My ever-resourceful pal, Janet, is taping this for me. Also, she is supposed to tape the Discovery docu. on 'The Storm'.
I'll give y'all reviews whenever I see 'em.

Yup Applepie, I think you were right--I got a bit mixed up about why he was crying.

However, he also said that he felt very deeply for the guys who died and for their families. And yes that story about the ID was great.

In the next couple of weeks I bet there are going to be lots of profiles of Mark in the newspapers. This Sunday's Arts & Leisure section of the New York Times (which I got today because when you get the paper delivered at home you get some of the Sunday sections on Saturday) has a long and pretty interesting article about George Clooney's career. They had a couple of brief references to Mark and his friendship with George. I hope they do something about Mark one of these days.
