Mark Wahlberg reveals that he was almost cast in Star Trek

We caught up with Mark Wahlberg to chat Broken City recently (look out for the full feature later this week).

In the meantime, we couldn’t wait to share a particularly juicy extract from the interview, when we asked Wahlberg about the biggest film news of the year: J.J. Abrams directing Star Wars: Episode VII .

Much to our surprise, Wahlberg said that he almost landed a key role in Abrams’ Star Trek reboot before backing out.

Broken City opens in the UK on 1 March 2013.
