Well, this is a bit of a bummer. Late last year we were tracking development of an intriguing new HBO Cold War drama that had initially eyed 'Breaking Bad''s Aaron Paul for the leading role, dubbed 'The Missionary.' The role went to 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' star Benjamin Walker, though 'Breaking Bad's Jesse Plemons signed on for a supporting role, with the show to be produced by Mark Wahlberg. Has the project officially gone cold?

In 1997, Paul Thomas Anderson made Mark Wahlberg a huge, huge star with the film 'Boogie Nights.' The film followed a dishwasher who uses his very, uh, sizable talents to enter the world of the adult film industry. While his star quickly rises, his life -- and the lives of his colleagues and friends -- begins to unravel. We take a look back at the cast of this film 16 years later (if you can believe it) to see what they're up to now.

We've been hearing about 'Ted 2' since...well, since the first 'Ted' became a box-office sensation and made $550 million worldwide. But, since then, we've had precious little in the way of actual updates. Sure, everyone - including star Mark Wahlberg and writer/director Seth MacFarlane - want it to happen, but would it actually happen? MacFarlane took to Twitter and let everyone know that it is happening and exactly when you'll be able to see it.

Anyone who has been following superhero movies knows that Robert Downey, Jr. has signed on to return as Tony Stark in 'The Avengers 2' and 'The Avengers 3,' but his future as Iron Man beyond that is up in the air. It's unlikely that Downey (who will be 53 when the third 'Avengers' film hits) will occupy the role forever, and Marvel hasn't been shy about recasting the character should the need ever arise.
And that brings us to the weird news bit of the day: Mark Wahlberg wants to takeover the part.

There's the old quote repeated by John Lennon, "life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." '2 Guns,' starring the formidable Denzel Washington and the affable Mark Wahlberg, feels like the type of movie big stars make when they are in-between the projects they'll end up being proud of. '2 Guns' isn't terrible – it's just rare to see a movie content with “agreeable in-flight entertainment” as its highest achievement.

Though we aren't yet into August, the summer movie season is winding down. '2 Guns' opens this Friday, and it stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, but it's hard to compare it to the big event films like 'Iron Man 3' or 'Man of Steel.' Maybe that's why there's a brand new trailer for the film to help get people excited for its release in four days.
