Mark Wahlberg says he’s going to punch Andy Samberg in the nose

Dad of three Mark Wahlberg, 37, was on the Jimmy Kimmel show on Thursday night. Kimmel showed a clip from “Saturday Night Live” of Andy Samberg pretending to be Wahlberg talking to a bunch of animals. Wahlberg previously said of the skit that SNL “hasn’t been funny for a long time,” and that “It wasn’t like Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin, that’s for sure.”

On Jimmy Kimmel, Wahlberg joked that he wanted to punch out Samberg. He said “When I see that kid, I’m going to crack that big f’cking nose of his. That’s what I’m going to do, and then I’m going to tell them, ‘say hi to your mother for me.'” Wahlberg said he was going to fly to NY, find Samberg and “slap him in the nose.” He also suggested he might make a cameo on the show tonight, adding “tune in, I guarantee you.”

Wahlberg also talked to Kimmel about an award that GQ gave to the head of his childhood Boy’s Club back in Massachusetts, along with a large donation to the foundation he runs with his brother.

Wahlberg is the youngest of nine children and said that he has even more half brothers and sisters from his father’s earlier relationship, some of whom he only met recently. He said, “one of them is also named Donnie, so he’s a little upset. The other one, Scottie, he’s cool. There are a couple of other ones floating around somewhere. My dad was in the military as well. God knows how many other ones.”

There’s no chance of a Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch reunion, according to Mark.

As a gift for Mark’s newborn son, Brenden Joseph, Kimmel gave him a diaper that had the name “little Diggler” on the front, a reference to Mark’s role as a porn star in the film Boogie Nights. He said “He’s actually a very healthy boy. When the doctor circumcised him he was impressed.”

Mark is next working on a series for HBO called “How to Make it in America” which he describes as “kids hustling trying to make a living in Brooklyn” and is working on another show for HBO called “Boardwalk Empire” with Martin Scorsese, which he says is about “corruption and gangsters and politicians in the 20s right around prohibition.”

    Okay, the idea of Mark going up to Samberg, punching him and saying “Say hi to your mother for me” is really cracking me up right now. 😆

    *That* should totally be the SNL sketch.

  2. devilgirl says:

    I agree with Wahlberg, SNL hasn’t been funny in a loooooong time and the Samberg skit was not the least bit funny or entertaining. Rather stupid, I thought!

    I thought Mark’s response was funny, but damn, he seems really pissed about it. I’m not sure if he’s just kidding or what, but he came across as really angry about it to me. I don’t think the skit diminishes Mark Wahlberg in the least – I still think he’s a pretty good actor and I enjoy his movies. I don’t think he’s a meathead. The skit was so funny (to me anyway) because the impersonation was so spot-on, down to the tone of his voice. It’d be a shame to let a stupid skit piss you off so much.

    Andy’s skit was dead on and pretty damn funny. I’ve watched a few time.

    “Hi Donkey. You’re a donkey right? I like that. You eat apples? I produce Entourage.”

    I have heard several interviews with Mark Wahlberg and he always comes across as an arrogant, obnoxious, humorless prat. His comments don’t surprise me at all. He has a remarkably huge ego for someone with his mediocre claims to fame.

    What czarina said. It’s not like he’s De Niro or something. I suspect he was a bit of an humourless sod before he became famous and that informs his behaviour now.
