"I've always looked at my career as an athlete would look at his. I won't play forever. Some don't know when to walk away, but the smart ones do."
"In my movies, I'm not trying to erase any old image of myself, really. And also I'm not trying to imitate anyone or follow in their footsteps, because I know, Burt Reynolds was just one of the people that told me this, I know how you can only last in this business if you got something special to offer, just by being yourself. Imitators don't last, and I'd like to last."
"I did a lot of things that I regretted and I certainly paid for my mistakes. You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn't until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don't have a problem going to sleep at night."
His brothers Arthur Wahlberg, Donnie Wahlberg, and Robert Wahlberg are also actors.
He was named in People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in the World in May 1992.
His older sister Debbie passed away in September 2, 2003, leaving behind a teenage son.
