Oscar-Nominated actor Mark Wahlberg was hospitalized earlier today after injuring himself while attaching himself to too many movie projects. A spokesperson for Cedars Sinai Medical Center said the 40-year-old actor is now in stable condition and is resting comfortably in the Nicolas Cage wing of the hospital.
Dr. Joseph Rodgers, who treated Wahlberg, said this isn’t an uncommon injury for A-list movie stars. “The human body can only be attached to a certain numbers of projects, before it gives out. I saw this injury almost kill Robin Williams in the mid-90s,” he said, noting that he’s seeing more cases these days. “Just last month, Ryan Reynolds was brought in for treatment.”
In addition to starring in the recently released “Contraband,” and the soon-to-be-released “Ted” and “Broken City,” Wahlberg is attached to a multitude of films, including “Three Mississippi,” “Pain and Gain,” “Good Time Gang,” “2 Guns,” “When Corruption Was King,” “Bait and Switch,” “Cocaine Cowboys,” “The Raven,” a remake of “Billy Jack,” a sequel to “The Fighter,” and an untitled basketball film with Justin Bieber.
The actor’s brother, Donnie Wahlberg, who stars in the hit CBS series, “Blue Bloods,” was upbeat about his brother’s condition. “I visited him early today and he’s doing well,” he told Hollywood & Swine. “He’s feeling so good that he’s already attached himself to a four-episode arc on my TV series.”
