Love the Magnuson photobomb
Is Marky Mark wearing clown shoes?
I just saw an interview of his in Golf Digest. The brand name is AQUAHydrate, and he is an investor in the company.
is there a mild redundancy in that name?
Is anyone else uncomfortable with Marky Mark saying he had a $500 bet with Gardner about the field goal? Even if it's just two guys joking around?
Marky Mark doesn't look to happy to be there
like he could suit up right now and be a serviceable strong safety.
If we suited up a 5'8" safety (and that's being generous).
I'd say so. Man he's a little F-er, ain't he?
Worked out for Iowa... #bobsanders
We already tried that:
Was Hoke having open try outs? Mark made it onto the Eagles.
doesn't that mean he's ineligible to play for us, I mean it sucks cuz Marky Mark could curl a fire truck
Is either even less happy to be there, or extremely happy to be there.
When you're that small compared to the giants around you, it's probably pretty uncomfortable. If one of those guys faints over meeting a famous actor, his kids would go splat.
Doesn't look to who? Happy Gilmore?
Looks like the sleeve monster visited the locker room.
I knew Wahlberg was a short dude, but he looks like an absolute midget here.
What size normal or big people look like around athletes. This is the 6'4" 260lb The Rock
So yeah, most people look small surrounded by a football team.
There's no way The Rock is 6'4". Barkley is only 6'5" I believe and Shaq is 7'1" and at least a foot taller. The Rock obviously exaggerated his height.
The Rock is probably not a full 6-4, but Barkley appears to be listed at 6-6. We'd have to see their feet to know more.
It's not really the height that shocks me, though. Those dudes are just WIDE. The Rock is not a twig and looks super slender here.
Dwayne Johnson is "billed" at 6'5" 260 #
or as small as 6'3". https://www.google.com/#sclient=psy-ab&q=dwayne+johnson+height+and+weight&oq=dwayne+johnson+he&gs_l=hp.1.2.0l188.8.131.52.1184.108.40.206.0.0.0.0.0..0.0....0...1c..19.psy-ab.rS35Nm38Zb4&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.48705608,d.aWc&fp=8e36e61f89e3036e&biw=1112&bih=767
In any event, he's a big dude in normal life. And he looks tiny next to Chuck and Shaq.
To which I say....BULLShhhiiittttt.
I mean, why in the world would they take a picture where the tall guys are standing on something? He's more than 2 inches shorter than Barkley. He's probably lucky if he's 6'2".
Muscle vs. fat.
His bone structure is much smaller than either of those dudes. It isn't just fat. Shaq is turned at something like a 45 degree angle and still is almost twice as thick.
However, he looks like he has put on another 20/30 lbs of muscle since those days.
...in the 818?
Depending on shoes and angles, I'd buy the listed heights. The Rock is probably closer to 6' 3", but when he's standing next to John Cena (who is listed at 6' 1"), he looks an inch or two taller. And Charles has always been about 6'5" to 6'6" in everything I've seen about him.
Regardless, all of these men are significantly taller than the average person. Hell, "midget" safety Kovacs measured in at about 6' 0". Athletes are just a different species of person.
when he played...so something ain't right in that photo.
yet he still led the league in rebounding. that's what's crazy!
....Bruce Lee & Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
One of my earlieriest memories of being a Michigan student was seeing some of the basketball team pass by on the Diag. It was amazing how tall they were and I suddenly realized that all that time I had spent as a teenager shooting basketballs (thinking if I just worked hard enough even I could make the NBA) was totally wasted effort.
This more shows me what happens when large men stop working out. Wasn't Shaq in the league a couple of years ago? Guy looks huge.
as a receiver (Vince Papale)
Taylor Lewan is tall.
The only one not wearing a Michigan shirt. Diggin' that tank though.
(credit to Bombadil)
If I'm not mistaken, that's Shane on the far left of the group photo? He looks like he's spent a lot of time in the weight room, combined with fully recovering from mono and has physically prepared himself to see the field this year (like everyone else, I hope he can redshirt though).
EDIT: well, I think I'm mistaken now that I actually click the photo to see the larger version.
Godin looks large.
That guy is too big for Shane.
Thats definintely not Shane
Is that Dymonte? Or possibly Devin Funchess?
That's pretty cool. Any reason he was in AA/Michigan? Other than its awesome and he wanted to go there.
I'm pretty sure he's shooting Transformers 4 in Michigan. Probably had a day off and decided to check out the Big House.
Are they Walhberg's?
was lead to Ann Arbor by the Iraqi ass-map.
Marky Mark doesn't like to be called Marky anymore. He will rage you if you do.
Punch you in the kneecap?
I dont know if anyone knows how to grab a video out of instagram, but Gardner has some cool passes to Mark and has him saying Go Blue Always!
was a good movie. Christian Bale was stellar in his portrayal of Marky's drugged up brother. Won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor and it was well deserved...quite the performance.
EDIT: "Mark's drugged up brother"
Usc has Snoop, we got Mark Wahlberg
and Russell Crowe. and Kate Upton.
But... MSU does have Jersey Shore firmly in their camp.
Jamie Foxx, Derek Jeter, Madonna (iffy on that one) too
I hope it's true. He's such a badass.
And a legendary backup quarterback.
Staee also has Fred Durst and Lindsey Lohan. I will have to check on that though.
I think Lohan is wearing a Michigan shirt here
How I long for the days of Mean Girls Lindsay
at her there it is actually kind of sad. (But you're right, that is a State shirt).
...hours before the photo was taken...she is definitely a Buckeye fan.
guilty as charged.
Hope you double bagged.
I thought that was Tori Spelling for a second.
Gotta get Kate upton down in the locker room.... Now that's a good recruiting tool
I know why he is there. They're shooting the new transformers in Michigan. He is in it. My friend is an extra in the film because it is at his work.
That giant tire next to I-94 is a Transformer after all!
Great picture. What shirt is DG wearing?
If he is in Michigan shooting a film, he must be also on his way to East Lansing to see their staduim and team too right?
People of hollywood tend to only care about things that matter.
I've got a shiny nickel for whoever can name everyone in the picture.
I've only got Jack Miller (middle-left, bending over), Devin (duh), Dileo (maybe? Right next to Gardner/behind Wahlberg?), Houma (? With the hair?), Braden (? In between The Hair and Lewan?), Lewan (duh), Magnuson (duh), and that's it.
Wouldn't "the hair" be Wormley? Looks way too tall to be Houma.
Indeed. Didn't realize he had hair like that, but a quick check of his MGOBlue profile confirms it: The Hair is Wormley, not Houma.
Back (L to R): Beyer, Mitropolous, Schofield, Burzinski, Ross, Ojemudia, Gibbons, Bosch, Pliska, Strobel, R. Glasgow, (on my phone and can't see enough of who's between Glasgow and Wormley, sorry), Wormley, Bars, Lewan, Gunderson, Magnuson
Front: Washington, C. Gordon, Miller, Clark, Gardner, with Gant and Funchess in front right corner. (Also can't see enough of who's behind Funchess, sorry)
Almost earned that nickel.
Now that I have a bigger picture....
That's not Ross, it's LTT. Not Bosch, G. Glasgow. And it's Jibreel behind Funchess. Still can't tell who's between R. Glasgow and Wormley.
is that Wyatt Shallman?
2nd from the left looks like Seth Rogan.
I do like Mark as an actor. I haven't found many famous individuals that chaged careers make much of an impact at their second stop, but I think Mark did. I find him to be a much better actor than he ever was a musical entertainer. His brother did as well. Not so much in movies as I have never seen him in anything, but he was great in band of brothers or the pacific...which ever one he was in (I forget now). He's also not bad in Blue Bloods, with my man Magnum P.I.
a good actor, not a great one. He is reliable, and really serviceable in any kind of role, but is only sporatically better than the material he is given. I thought he was actually kind of the flat in "The Fighter" and was one of the reasons that I felt the movie lacked a center and consequently lacked any sustainable depth. His home is in the "best supporting actor" arena. Does not quite have the chops for serious leads (Unless he is cast opposite a hilarious giant talking bear that is)..
And there are lots of good people who are a great supporting actor, and not a great lead. I think that Whalberg fits that category. His performance in The Departed was great, but he wasn't given too much to work with. Colin Ferrel comes to mind as someone else who excels if given a supporting role but struggles in a lead.
is a good example. There are a bunch like Wahlberg, Barry Pepper, both of the Affleck brothers are kind of in that department as well.
Come on. Walberg may not be an elite level actor, but he has been in, starred in and produced some tremendous material. Name one decent movie that Ferrel starred in? Have you seen The Fighter? The Departed, The Italian Job, Invincible, Boogie Nights? Walhberg produced Entourage. Sure he plays the same character in every movie he has been in, but shit, he has been in some entertaining flicks (maybe not critically acclaimed) like Three Kings, The Perfect Storm, Four Brothers, Ted. Collin Farrel, Barry Battefield Earth Pepper he is not. Plus he is throwing a football around at the Big House AND filming in Michigan (which brings in some money for the state) so he gets bonus points for that!
Donnie D, break it down...cue Funky Bunch.
That you point out he's a supporting character, just like he said, right? And the one really good one with him as a the lead is The Fighter...the movie where everything in it got nominated for an Academy Award, except him. If you're going to give him credit for just being in the movies, Barry Pepper has been a supporting player in a lot better movies than the Funky one.
Even admitting he plays the same character in every role pretty much says he's not a great actor.
And EVERYBODY, it's Farrell! (And to answer your question, In Bruges.)
...Collin Farrel as opposed to Collin Ferrel is a much better actor than Walhberg...he was awesome in American Outlaws, Total Recall, Hart's War, Daredevil, SWAT and Miami Vice...and was the lead in every one of those cinematic masterpieces and was not part of collaborative casts in any of the movies...as opposed to Wahlberg. Give me a break...by the way In Bruges is such an overrated dark comedy, but if u didn't like The Fighter there is no point in arguing with you...it would be like trying to explain to a Buckeye grad that Michigan is a better academic institution than Ohio...they just don't get it.
So I wouldn't talk about anyone else being able to explain/understand.
Someone who thinks the best thing about The Fighter was Marky Mark isn't someone I'm going to take seriously on film. The Fighter was good in spite of him. Because everyone else was great. Much like The Departed.
And a number of the movies you mention here are no worse than things like Invincible, Three Kings, or Four Brothers.(Frankly, if you want to talk overrated, Boogie Nights should be on your list).
...for you...maybe that will cheer u up. Also, don't know what is funnier...(1) that I don't know/don't care how to spell Collin Ferrel aka Collin Farrell aka Colin Farrell, or (2) that you do know/care.
where should I start? First, Three Kings was probably the most critically acclaimed film that Wahlberg has ever been in, and probably his best role. Barry Pepper. Man, if you think I was comparing Marky to Pepper as an insult you drastically misread what I was trying to say. First of all, Pepper has been in two flat out better movies than Wahlberg has, 25th Hour and SPR, and was better in both of those movies than Wahlberg has been in his career. That does not mean that Pepper can carry a movie. Both actors have outstanding range, that being that they can play a lot of roles, but neither has the depth or can create the character detail necessary to play a lead role and do it well. Norton, Clooney, Pitt, Freeman, Washington, Crowe, these guys literally become the character they are playing, and their presence alone can make a movie. That is what Marky Mark lacks. Look, there are great actors that cannot lead. Ed Harris may be one of my favorite actors alive and I cannot remember him playing a lead role in his career. He knows his limitations. Directors took note of Wahlberg's performance in The Fighter. He was actually quite lost and he is lucky he had the Dark Knight there to carry him to the finish line. He is a good actor. That statement is true. Anything more is hyperbole. But he is boss for hanging with the crew in The Big House.
and honestly I'm not cultured enough to be a movie critic but every movie I have seen with him in it I have enjoyed. I would agree that he seems to be better in movies where he isn't the lead, but again, that comes from a guy who like to watch films to escape reality and not to critique their finer points.
As was everyone in that brilliant series.
get a really good vibe from this photo.
In one of Devin Gardners videos, and quoted in a DetNews article, it says Wahlberg and Gardner have a $500 bet on a 50 yard field goal. They could be joking, but isn't that against NCAA rules??
He's not betting Devin, he's betting one of his friends that he came with. Otherwise, yes, that'd be a big violation.
If you watch the video, Devin's not even the one kicking the field goals - he's the one recording.
Yeah I noticed that but the DetNews article clearly says Wahlberg and Gardner are betting
By the latter, Gardner was referring to another Instagram video he posted, which starts with Wahlberg throwing to Gardner near midfield, then declaring “We got a $500 bet; he (Gardner) bet $500 that he could hit a 50-yarder (field goal).
"The video then cuts to Gardner preparing to kick the ball, and Wahlberg saying, “It’s not gonna happen; I’ll give him three tries.”
Gardner then kicks the ball, which would have sailed through the uprights — if the goalpost was 20 yards closer, 8 feet lower and on the left side of the end zone. Wahlberg then looks into the camera and declares “Go Blue.”
...what are the odds that Gardner gets suspended for this activity? Given Michigan's reputation, I'd expect that there will have to at least be an internal investigation. Posting stuff like that on the web is really foolish.
Anyone who's spent any time around Devin can identify his voice/laugh - it's very distinctive, and he's always joking around so you get to know it well. I'll bet much more than Wahlberg's $500 that's him talking to Mark about the bet, and then laughing as the kicked ball sails over his head. I don't know where the DetNews got their info but they are clearly wrong in this case.
That is definitely not Devin kicking and wahlberg never says who he net with. Detroit News has pulled that language.
Mark is jacked but he looks so small next to our guys.
If it were any more cut up, I would argue they weren't even on the field at the same time
they just visiting?
Dirk Diggler in the house!
Not a 3 or 4. But a porn star!!!
That's a pretty awesome picture. Hopefully someone asked him how it was like to produce Entourage.
Pretty sure he's a Pats fan to the extent that Tom Brady was on Entourage. It'd be cool if they came to a game together this fall.
I absolutely love that Lewan is rocking the sky-blue tank. It would be just wrong to see Lewan dressed like everyone else. Being 6'7" (or 8) and massively built doesn't make you stand out enough.
