Mark Wahlberg as the Crow? Ugh.


We can file this one under “Why would you do this?”

Bloody Disgusting has reported that Marky Mark has been offered the lead in a remake of The Crow. For those of you who haven’t seen The Crow, it’s about a guy who comes back to life to avenge the murders of himself and his wife while wearing Insane Clown Posse make-up. The wrestler Sting kind of aped the look, which makes me wonder, why not just use Sting? I’m sure he’s available. The movie was dark, gothy, and violent, but nothing about it screams Wahlberg’s name.

Wahlberg hasn’t accepted the role yet, but if I were him, I’d do the right thing and pass it to Donnie, because he’s got whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, the right stuff!

That was a terrible joke and I apologize. But serious, Mark Wahlberg, you’re not Nic Cage. You don’t have to take every role offered to you. Do the right thing. Don’t be the Crow.
