Mark and Donnie
Wahlberg Get Their Own
It was announced today that Mark Wahlberg and his brother, New Kids on the Block star Donnie will be getting their own reality show, called Wahlburgers about their trials and tribulations of opening a burger restaurant of the same name.
In addition to an awesome pun and more Wahlbergs in our lives, we’re also going to meet the inspiration behind the HBO hit, Entourage!
Entourage—which ran from 2004 until 2011—was about a successful young movie star’s experiences as he and his friend’s transition to life in Hollywood was based largely on Mark and his crew from Boston.
We’re most excited to meet Johnny “Drama” Alves, who inspired Kevin Dillon’s character, Johnny Drama; the real-life Johnny Drama is the Wahlbergs’ cousin who Donny had put in charge of keeping Mark out of trouble as he joined the big leagues in Hollywood.
We’ll also get introduced to new characters in the Wahlberg’s lives, like their friend Henry “Nacho” Laun and their mother, Alma.
It’s a good time to be an Entourage fan! Not only will fans get to meet know the inspiration behind their favorite characters through Wahlburgers, but it was also recently announced that plans for an Entourage movie have moved forward with production!
