Rapper-turned-underwear model-turned-Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg has been enshrined in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 39-year-old actor was presented with a star on Thursday on Hollywood Boulevard’s famed sidewalk monument.

Will Ferrell, who stars with Wahlberg in the action-comedy “The Other Guys” being released next week, was on hand for the ceremony. The comedian got in a couple of digs. “I’m glad to be here,” Ferrell said.

“I first became a fan of Mark’s when I bought his workout video.”

Wahlberg first gained fame in the early 1990s, headlining rap act Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.
