Add "weatherman" to Mark Wahlberg's list of onscreen talents. The actor stepped in and handled traffic and weather during his "Good Day Philadelphia" appearance on WTXF Wednesday morning. There to promote his new film "Broken City," Wahlberg, alongside director Allen Hughes, handled the seven-day forecast for the area, but really hit his stride when it came time to report on local traffic.
Subbing his Boston accent for a Philadelphia one, Wahlberg pointed to a congested area on the traffic map. "Expect delays here ... stop and get yourself a hoagie."
(Sage advice, but not a cheesesteak?)
If this kind of stunt looks familiar, it's because standing before the weather map and getting a little silly seems to be that thing celebrities want to do lately. Everyman Tom Hanks let loose and busted out some dance moves during the weather segment on Univision's "Despierta America."
And during her appearance on TODAY, Scarlett Johansson kindly filled in for Al Roker when he fell prey to a case of laryngitis. It was hardly a hardship for Johansson, though: the move was described as her "lifelong dream."
