Mark Wahlberg says Ocean’s films “sucked”

Mark WahlbergOscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg says he’s glad he turned down a role in the Ocean’s films, because they all “sucked,” according to He was approached to play Linus Caldwell in Ocean’s Eleven, but turned it down. Matt Damon went on to play the role. Even though the first one was good, Wahlberg says, “The second one sucked! People tell George Clooney it’s great, but we all know it sucked. I made two bad movies instead — Planet of the Apes and The Truth About Charlie — but doing that was better than sitting with Brad and George, telling the press how great everybody is: ‘We were in Europe, George was funny, then we had some wine…’ — that’s not for me. I do love those guys, but I had to step out on my own.”

    which means he’s pissed the movies did better than he thought they would and he should have taken the part.

    also means, he’s jealous of matt damon.

    Mark is probably right. Though I never watched any on the Ocean’s cause I heard they sucked.

    Don’t be surprised if this all turns out to be bunk. I know (being a fly on the wall of the movie industry) that all of those guys are tight, and they constantly rag on one another.
    Its a prank. Probably to raise awareness of ”
    The Happening”…which sucks.

    He should have added that the new Indy sucked too.

  13. Lexie • June 13, 2008 @ 9:32 PM

    It took guts for him to say that. I wonder how Clooney will take it, he’s so full of himself.

    Ocean’s 12 was the only one that sucked for me. Julia Roberts is just terrible..

  15. Anonymous • June 14, 2008 @ 11:33 AM

    Julia Roberts’ one character that she always plays sucks. Markie Mark sucks. Most movies that get hyped suck. Lots of money and no talent really sucks. Sean John. Say no more…

    Oceans 13 was a good movie. He’s jealous he didn’t get to hang with Brad and George, instead got stuck with some damn dirty apes.

  17. Chaddy • June 15, 2008 @ 9:32 AM

    I totally agree with Whalberg. First Oceans movie was ok (plus not that original since it was a remake afterall), but then how many slight variation carbon copies can you make after that? Apparently 2 more. At least Planet of the Apes remake was half decent too. That was not a mistake for Whalberg..Truth About Charlie was though..

  18. pm • June 16, 2008 @ 8:14 AM

    I definately agree with Mark. I thought the ocean movies sucked too. However, I kept thinking “Am I the only one who thinks this is pretty awful”. And then when the third one came out, I thought how could anyone in their right mind make yet another one of these awful movies. The story line and the dialogs sucked. The only things that looked good in these movies where Brad Pit, Goerge and the great European scenery.
    Please have mercy and don’t make anymore.

    I think Mark is just upset that his recent roles haven’t been so great…aside from the departed which was an awesome movie…awesome…he should take better roles than crap like the happening…he should go back to roles like four brothers…that movie was good too…

  20. tammy • June 16, 2008 @ 4:44 PM

    Maybe he should go back to the music scene…like his bro(New kids on the block)…hey mark?Good vibration…sweet sensation…
