Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg is crediting his faith and his prayer life for his success, saying in a new interview they’re at the “forefront” of everything he does. Wahlberg has been open about his faith in recent years. He and actor Jonathan Roumie of The Chosen were featured in a Super Bowl ad this year for the Catholic prayer app Hallow, and two years ago, Wahlberg produced and starred in a passion project, Father Stu, that told the story of a Catholic priest who persevered in his faith as he developed a muscular disease.

Listen in as we talk about Mark's faith and his new movie Arthur the King, which comes out on March 15, 2024. In Arthur the King, Wahlberg portrays an athlete, Mikael Lindnord, whose team is competing in a grueling adventure race in the Dominican Republic when they encounter a stray dog with major wounds. Wahlberg’s character instantly bonds with the dog, dubbed “Arthur,” but then faces a dilemma: If he helps the dog find a vet, he could lose the race. The movie is based on a true story.
