Mark Wahlberg: The Fighter star—who plays boxer “Irish” Micky Ward in David O. Russell’s new flick—talks with Keeping It Reel host Tim Gordon about parallels between himself and his real-life character. “Putting on that belt was a childhood fantasy—being in the ring and the crowd screaming,” he says. “Micky’s journey is very much like mine. The only difference is that I was in the entertainment business and he was an athlete. Other than that, we grew up 30 minutes from each other, both from a family of nine and we both of us had to overcome a lot of obstacles to achieve our goals.”
