Lone Survivor's Mark Wahlberg on Earning the Respect of Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell
Actor Mark Wahlberg plays Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in the box office hit, “Lone Survivor.”
The movie tells the story of a 2005 Navy SEAL covert mission in Afghanistan, in which Luttrell was the only soldier to survive.
Today on Fox and Friends Weekend, Wahlberg told Clayton Morris what it was like getting to know Luttrell as he brought this story to the big screen. “Marcus can be a pretty intimidating guy, and he wasn’t really impressed with my resume as an actor. He’s the kind of guy you have to earn his trust and earn his respect.”
Wahlberg described the training process they went through to make the film as authentic as possible. “Those guys were heroes and we were going to let the world know it, and we were going to get it right.”
