Mark Wahlberg has been running, punching, and shooting his way through movies for years. From the likes of Planet of the Apes to Max Payne and The Italian Job to 2 Guns, the 46-year-old actor has done his share of stunts. Nowadays however, Wahlberg isn’t looking toward all the stunt work he gets to do in films like his upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight; instead, he’s more interested in the less physically demanding scenes.
Speaking with CinemaBlend, Wahlberg commented on his favorite Transformers: The Light Knight scenes to film.
Anything with just sitting in a room and talking is much preferred for me. If I walk out of my trailer and see a harness I know I’m screwed for the day. And out of 100 shooting days I probably wore the harness about 60 or 70 days.
With an action-heavy film like Transformers, it’s no surprise that Wahlberg had to suit up for stunt work most days, but maybe he’ll be able to find a better balance in the future.
“The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.”
Transformers: The Last Knight will make a last stand on June 21, 2017. The film’s cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Isabela Moner, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins, and Santiago Cabrera. The vocal talents of Peter Cullen, John Goodman, John DiMaggio, and Mark Ryan will also be featured.
2017 Summer Movie Preview: What To Look Out For
What do aliens, robots, superheroes, pirates, genetically-modified apes, and Will Ferrell all have in common?

There’s a cavalcade of riches this summer, with new offerings from both DC and Marvel, new (and in some cases, final) installments in long-running franchises, and a couple newcomers testing the waters for future sequels. Even some non-theatrical films get in on the fun, like Netflix’s War Machine starring Brad Pitt.
