Mark Wahlberg Hates It When Actors Attempt The Boston Accent

August 17, 2018

Mark Wahlberg made news that he's looking for "tough guys" to be cast in his upcoming mob film that will take place in Boston. So right now we're just wondering why he hasn't contacted either of us  to join the cast.

But like many Bostonians, Mark Wahlberg is very critical whenever a non-Boston actor attempts the Boston accent. Many have tried and nearly all have failed.

So during his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Wahlberg spoke for all of us how painful it is to listen to attempted Boston accents. "Some people have wisely avoided doing the accent," says Wahlberg. "I've heard worse. I've witnessed worse."
