By the time Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch found success with their hit "Good Vibrations" in 1991, Wahlberg already had a rap sheet a mile long. Growing up in Boston, the actor dealt drugs, stole cars and did jail time for an assault -- all before he was 18. The young talent later sought a second chance at life with the help of his parish priest, and he's been on the straight and narrow ever since.
Nowadays, the devout Catholic has four children with his wife, Rhea Durham. Thanks to critically acclaimed hits like "Entourage," "The Departed" and "The Fighter, the actor/producer now has a handful of Oscar and Emmy nominations under his belt, to boot.
