Gambling has been thrust into the mainstream of late. Although many people remember the 1974 James Caan drama called The Gambler. It’s safe to say the 2014 re-make of The Gambler, has been slickly directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes), who has truly refashioned the same story into a swaggering California crime drama about a golden boy rebelling against his own privilege, by flushing every dollar he can get his hands on down the toilet.
Who is playing the role of this golden boy in 2014 remake of The Gambler, you ask?
Well that would be actor Mark Wahlberg, who has played in various movies, including, the heart-felt comedy of Ted, and the action-packed Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Earlier this week, Deelishis of The Morning Heat, actually took the time to sit down and speak with both, Wahlberg and Wyatt about the upcoming film, The Gambler and more! Watch both interviews below:
