Wahlberg was on the NBC daytime chat show to promote his new movie Spenser Confidential.
Based on the novel by Robert B. Parker and directed by Peter Berg, Wahlberg serves as both star and producer.
He explained his character Spenser and the plot of the film to Ellen this way: ‘He was a former police officer who just basically cannot stand when somebody is being wronged, especially innocent people.’
‘So there’s a homicide within the police department, there’s a lot of corruption going on. He tries to do all the things right to get them to find out who’s responsible, they’re kind of sandbagging the investigation, so he decides to go after his superiors himself.’
Wahlberg continued: ‘He ends up beating up his superior, goes to prison for five years, actually makes it in population in prison and then he ‘s going to leave town.’
‘And then he realizes that there’s more corruption going on and he can’t stand by to see injustice, so he’s going to take it upon himself to now be a private investigator,’ he added.
