THE PUBLIC MAY KNOW him as a Calvin Klein underwear model or Ted's bestie in the raunchy comedy "Ted" or the fellow who is trying to expunge his past criminal record, but the devoutly Catholic Mark "Marky Mark" Wahlberg is a man of faith in real life. World Meeting of Families organizers indeed announced yesterday that the actor-producer-restaurateur will emcee the Festival of Families lineup Sept. 26 on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. "As a Catholic, I credit much of my success to my faith," Wahlberg said in a statement.

Mark Wahlberg, erstwhile rapper and underwear model whose sometimes-crude humor earned him starring roles in two comedies about a grown man and his sentient teddy bear, seems like an odd fit to host a festival for the pope. But the 44-year-old actor has long credited his Boston parish priest with guidance that helped him overcome a childhood of crime and drug use. And, after all, this pope is a progressive one. So, Marky Mark: Meet Pope Francis. Wahlberg will anchor the Saturday, Sept.

Maybe Mark Wahlberg is a glutton for punishment. Or maybe he's simply an actor who approaches his bone-jolting roles with Method-actor intensity. Or maybe he's a little of both. Making Invincible in Philadelphia last summer, Wahlberg took nearly all of his own hits at Franklin Field as he re-created Vince Papale's bruising rookie season with the Eagles under Dick Vermeil in 1976. And last week, speaking from a trailer in Vancouver, Canada, where he's filming his new thriller The Shooter, Wahlberg wearily described the previous day's activities.

Growing up, Philadelphia native Jessica Barth dreamed of being an actress — and of meeting Mark Wahlberg. "I definitely had Mark Wahlberg's poster on my wall, in his little Calvin Kleins," she said. "I was a huge fan of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. " While acting in the movie Ted, which opens in area theaters Friday, Barth got to accomplish both dreams. She plays Tami-Lynn, streetwise Bostonian girlfriend of the titular character, a magically alive teddy bear. It's the first live-action film for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

MOVE "THE TOWN" to New Orleans and swap Ben Affleck for Mark Wahlberg and you grasp the general drift of "Contraband. " Wahlberg's picture isn't in that class (it steals at least one line and a couple of plot ideas), but it's a competent genre movie enlivened by vivid sense of place/culture - shot on location in New Orleans, delving into the world of merchant seaman/dock workers/smugglers. Wahlberg plays Chris Farraday, a retired smuggler running a legit security business when he's blackmailed by a local thug (Giovanni Ribisi)

Beasts of the Southern Wild Benh Zeitlin's intensely strange and wonderful film, about a girl named Hushpuppy, her defiant but deathly ill father, and the ragged Louisiana delta community they inhabit, is dreamlike and full of grand emotional swells. Moviemaking as outsider art. PG-13 Take This Waltz Michelle Williams is sad and beautiful as a Toronto freelance writer who falls for a charming artist who lives across the street. They're a perfect couple, except for one thing: She's married.

Thoughts, prayers, TV postponements. When violence strikes, as it does with almost numbing regularity, calls for the first two often are quickly followed by the third, as network executives scan their lineups for fictional shows that might remind viewers uncomfortably of the all-too-real dramas playing out on the news. USA's new drama Shooter on Monday had its premiere postponed to the fall in response to the fatal attacks on police in Baton Rouge, La., becoming the latest show considered a little too evocative of current events.

It's OK if you're skeptical about the Will Ferrell vs. Mark Wahlberg vehicle Daddy's Home . The trailers have showcased obvious, lowest-common-denominator humor that doesn't look too promising. But the reality is that the film, directed by comedy vet Sean Anders, is much funnier than it appears - never doubt the powers of Will Ferrell. Ferrell is at his best when he's playing a buffoonish naif, the sweet-natured bull in the china shop who just can't seem to get anything right (see: Christmas classic Elf )

Although there were some skeptics in the crowd, I thought Mark Wahlberg gave a polished delivery during the officiating of Saturday night's Festival of Families. He didn't take himself too seriously or pretend to be something he was not, a fear I had when I first heard he was hosting. In reference to the movie, "Ted," he said: "Holy Father, please forgive me . . . I've always hoped the good Lord has a sense of humor when it comes and pertains to many of the movies that I've made.

Reprinted from Thursday's editions. If Mark Wahlberg's new pic, The Gambler , feels like a stale rehash of existential tropes, that's because it is.   A disappointing thriller from Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt, The Gambler is a remake of the 1974 James Caan gem of the same name, which itself was loosely based on a 1867 novella by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, one of the grandpapas of existentialism. The original story is about a despairing, fatalistic antihero who'd rather sink into an abyss of chance events than take his fate in his own hands.

SO MUCH NEWS this week we didn't get into such as the ongoing collateral damage resulting from the recent cyber attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment. Hackers revealed actress Jennifer Lawrence received a lower salary than her male "American Hustle" co-stars and posted emails between Sony co-chair Amy Pascal and movie producer Scott Rudin joking about President Obama 's favorite films. They sounded a little bit racist to some. Read on for more celeb news. Yesterday Scott Stapp , the troubled former Creed front man, claimed to be a CIA agent with one mission in mind: assassinate President Obama , according to a 9-1-1 recording obtained by TMZ. The singer's estranged wife, Jaclyn Stapp , and his sister-in-law called 9-1-1 frantically late last month after he left the house shirtless and began to ride around his Boca Raton, Fla., neighborhood saying he wanted to assassinate Obama, according to a recording released by TMZ. Police determined Stapp didn't show enough signs of mental instability so they did not place him on a psych-hold.

HARRY BELAFONTE has sued the estate of Martin Luther King Jr., saying that it "astonishingly" blocked his attempts to auction off three King documents. Filed on Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, the suit seeks unspecified damages and a court declaration that Belafonte is the rightful owner. The documents are an outline of a Vietnam War speech by King; notes to a speech that King never got to deliver in Memphis, Tenn.; and a condolence letter from President Lyndon B. Johnson to King's wife after the civil-rights leader's 1968 assassination.
