Seeing Mark Wahlberg in the Entourage movie would be perfection, but will it happen?
The executive producer of the hit HBO series caught up with E! News during the premiere of his film Lone Survivor in Hollywood last night, and talked about whether or not he'll be making a cameo in the flick. But not before sharing that he's just as happy as the fans to see the popular TV show finally make it's way to the big screen.
"Sometimes you gotta will things to happen and sometimes you gotta wait. But, the fan base has always demanded it," Wahlberg told us. "Every time I went out to promote a movie or talk about a project that I had, people were always asking about Entourage."

So will we see his face onscreen, too?
"Maybe, if they want me. I certainly don't demand that I need to be in it and I'm just happy that the story is being told and that it's coming to the big screen because I know people have wanted it for a long time."
Reports also recently surfaced that blond bombshell Kate Upton may be hanging with Vinnie Chase and the boys, too. Sources told The Wrap that Upton has yet to receive an offer, but she is in early talks to join the cast as the female lead.
When asked if there was any truth to the story, Wahlberg simply said, "Don't know."
In late October, Entourage fans heard the news that they'd been desperately waiting for—a movie was really happening.
Doug Ellin, the show creator and director, tweeted a photo of the cast with the (wonderful) words, "It's a go. love you all."
Meanwhile, Jerry Ferrara —otherwise known as Turtle on the series—echoed Ellin's sentiments, tweeting, "I am proud to announce the movie is officially a GO! Have to thank @wbpictures and @ for all the support to make this happen!"
If all goes well, shooting on Entourage is expected to get rolling next year.
