Screen legend Mark Wahlberg is in London and paid a special visit to White Hart Lane, the world-famous home of Tottenham Hotspur.
Posing with current Spurs stars Dele Alli, Michel Vorm and former club captain Ledley King, Wahlberg donned the new Under Armour Tottenham Hotspur shirt and had a special message for local rivals Arsenal – something that has endeared him to the better half of North London.
Wahlberg joins the ranks of other celebrity Spurs fans including Jude Law, theatre and cinema legend Kenneth Branagh, music superstar Adele, actor Ray Liotta, WWE Superstar John Cena, Man v Food supremo Adam Richman, Harry Potter favourite Rupert Grint, Baby Spice Emma Bunton, Comedian Michael McIntyre and NBA star Steve Nash.
Hollywood funny-man Jason Sudeikis also made a series of hilarious videos promoting Tottenham Hotspur and the Premier League in America for NBC, as hapless Soccer coach Ted Lasso.
Wahlberg is in London filming scenes for the upcoming Transformers movie The Last Knight. He’s also promoting his latest film Deepwater Horizon and will be attending the Brook vs. Golovkin boxing bout on Saturday night at The O2.
Deepwater Horizon is a true story of bravery, which opens in cinemas on 30th September. Starring alongside Mark Wahlberg are Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien and Kate Hudson.
On April 20th, 2010, the world’s largest man-made disaster occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico.
Directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor), this story honours the brave men and women whose heroism would save many on board, and change everyone’s lives forever.
The film is based on an article by David Barstow, David Rohde, and Stephanie Saul which was published in The New York Times. Matthew Sand handles the screen story and co-scripts with Matthew Michael Carnahan.
