How come the Wahlberg Brothers never did a movie together?

Whenever one of their movies portrays Donnie Wahlberg with "brothers," they never cast one of his many brothers (I believer there are 9).

Same thing with Mark Wahlberg movies. I know they consider "Donnie Wahlberg" to be the inferior actor of the two, but I still think it would add credence to a film to have them working together.

OT: did Donnie lose all his hair? Looks like he sports a rug now.

Elizabeth and Andrew Shu - no movies together
Dennis and Randy Quad - no movies together (I don't think so)

Yes, they were in The Long Riders together as "brothers."

In that movie, a lot of real-life brothers played "brothers:"


David Carradine ... Cole Younger
Keith Carradine ... Jim Younger
Robert Carradine ... Bob Younger

James Keach ... Jesse James
Stacy Keach ... Frank James

Dennis Quaid ... Ed Miller
Randy Quaid ... Clell Miller

Christopher Guest ... Charlie Ford
Nicholas Guest ... Bob Ford

Re: How come the Wahlberg Brothers never did a movie together?

As far as I know, Shirley MacLaine and Warren Beatty never made a movie together. Nor did James Arness and Peter Graves. All four are still alive, so there's always a possibility. Not so for Dana Andrews and Steve Forrest. Or Scott Brady and Lawrence Tierney, neither set of brothers having made a movie together, as far as I can tell.

Oops, I'm wrong...Steve Forrest's first film role was a bit part as a sailor in his big brother Dana's wartime Technicolor submarine film, CRASH DIVE. Steve was 19 at the time and Dana was 35!

No, they weren't. Donnie wasn't.

Looks like Donnie's greatest achievement as an actor was his work done in Band of Brothers.

Like, it would have been cool if Donnie and Mark Wahlberg were "brothers" in Ransom, instead of casting Liev Schreiber as Clark Barnes. Should have been Mark Wahlberg as "Cubby Barnes" brother.

Skylar: Do you have lots of brothers and sisters?

Will: I'm Irish Catholic, what do you think?

Skylar: But how many?

Will: You wouldn't believe me if I told you.

Skylar: Why? Go on, what, 5? 7? 8? How many?

Will: I have 12 big brothers.

Skylar: You do not have 12 brothers.

Will: I swear to God, I swear to God, I'm lucky 13 right here.

Skylar: Do you know all their names?

Will: Do I... yeah, they're my brothers.

Skylar: What are they called?

Will: Marky, Ricky, Danny, Terry, Mikey, Davey, Timmy, Tommy, Joey, Robby, Johnny, and Brad.

Skylar: Say it again.

Will: Marky, Ricky, Danny, Terry, Mikey, Davey, Timmy, Tommy, Joey, Robby, Johnny, and Brian.

They did just team up. Mark was the star of The Happening, and Donnie cameoed as an angry fern.

But I believe Donnie co-wrote The Funky Bunch's "Good Vibrations"

Well, not a PUBLIC film, anyway.

If one is to believe the new Beatty biography, he left no stone unturned in his scorched earth march through Hollywood.

Shirley probably just wrote it off as a 'past life' experience.

Donnie is doing pretty well with Blue Bloods. And he was in Dead Silence.

"Good Vibrations" by Marky Mark is the theme song for "The Sixth Sense" which starred Donnie Wahlberg.
