Mark Wahlberg

Can you imagine Mark Wahlberg in the final frontier?! The actor revealed to Total Film that he had the opportunity to join the new Star Trek movie franchise, but turned down the part. "I remember [J.J. Abrams] asking me to play Captain Kirk's father in Star Trek," the Broken City star said. "I tried to read the script and I didn't understand the words of the dialogue or anything. I said, 'I couldn't do this. I think you're really talented, but I couldn't do it.'"
