VIDEO: Mark Wahlberg Confirms Production of ENTOURAGE Film on 'Leno'
Mark Wahlberg stopped by Jay Leno and last night and reminisced about his first performance on "The Tonight Show" as rapper "Marky Mark" with old clips. Later, Wahlberg, who produced the 'Entourage' TV series, confirms the production of the much anticipated "Entourage" movie saying shooting will get underway next month for a planned fall premiere. While the actor has not yet been asked to be in the movie, he revealed that he would love to if invited.
Wahlberg also discussed the bidding wars that took place when he tried to get rights for the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" saga.
"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" features a nightly monologue (the longest in late night), news-making guests, and ongoing comedy segments, including "Headlines," "Jaywalking" and "Battle of Jaywalking All-Stars." The result is a unique and humorous look at the daily happenings in the news and in pop culture.
The program is also a proven barometer of political clout. In 2009, the show made HISTORY by being the first late-night show to host a sitting president when Jay Leno welcomed President Barack Obama as a guest.
"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" is from Big Dog Productions in association with Universal Television. Debbie Vickers is the executive producer.
