Was Mark Wahlberg Hammered On BBC's 'The Graham Norton Show'?
Mark Wahlberg was feeling extra lively and spirited last Friday night on BBC's The Graham Norton Show. Marky Mark appeared on Norton alongside comedian Sarah Silverman and actor Michael Fassbender, when Wahlberg challenged even his buddy Ted with his foul mouth.
“Why would you ask people to drink alcohol and come on a show in the evening?” Wahlberg joked at the beginning of the segment, a glass of wine in hand. “What's going on here? It's a recipe for disaster!”
He couldn't have made a more accurate prediction…for himself.
The Broken City actor appeared on the show to promote his newest film, but based on his awkward slouching and immediate antics, he looked quite buzzed. The program began with Wahlberg poking fun at Fassbender's pretty face and gave an anecdote about his son learning inappropriate language from Transformers. Jump ahead 40 minutes, and Marky Mark is sitting on Norton's lap poking at the host's nipples, with Norton reminding him to behave.
Mark got extra rowdy during the “Flipping the Red Chair” segment:
Naturally, some fans took their opinions of Wahlberg's drunkenness to Twitter:
How drunk was Mark Wahlberg on Graham Norton?! YOU ARE MARRIED.

Mark Wahlberg appears to be a complete arse, incredibly rude on Graham Norton.

Even brother Donnie Wahlberg made a comment about his oh-so-“cheeky” brother:
Few people in the world know how funny, the funny side of, my lil' bro @mark_wahlberg actually is. Until tonight perhaps. He's a cheeky one.

What do you think, folks? Was Wahlberg too tipsy for TV?
