Better pop-star turned actor: Marky Mark Wahlberg or Fresh Prince Will Smith?
will smith all the way however mark is a good actor will smith is so much better
Wahlberg for sure!
Wahlberg is more entertaining. Will Smith takes himself too seriously.
gettin' jiggly wit it!
Both made crappy music except for Marky's "Good Vibrations".
Ws 1st single '87 fpob '90
Also if they make another Alex cross movie (kiss the girls/along came a spider) they should use Will Smith now that Denzel is a little old for it someone tell James Patterson.
Has anyone else wonder if drama from entourage is meant to be Donnie ? Since entourage is loosely bases on mark Walbergs life.
@chipmonk & others. WS did not do acting b4 music. "parents just don't understand" classic. NEway, I still chose MW although I live them both & think Donnie is better than both
Sorry Dr. Kelly busy busy. I really enjoyed 7 lbs.
dude! the fighter!
close, but man I do love will smith. Carlton beats em all tho
Take your "funky bunch" and stick it were the sun don't shine.
Whalberg all the way!
they both turned out to be pretty damn good actors, but I think Will Smith gets the nod. in fact, as good as Mark Wahlberg is, I'm not even sure he is the better Wahlberg.
I like both. Will is a good guy, I have met him a few times. Just an overall good-natured guy. Mark is good also. They are just very different. Whereas, I do believe most people will say Will, he is obviously more popular overall.
Tough question. Both have made some great movies. Will gets my vote but just barely.
Marky Mark in those Calvin Kline ads. Yum!
Wahlberg, by far!
@terra. yea or nay on 7 pounds? love will myself, but not his best work; but then again, I'm sure that there some w could point to as marky mark's not-best-work!
Boy that was a tough question at first. Then I remember 7 Pounds.
Better rapper and actor is will
Smith is like a da Vinci for performance. He did Hitch, Pursuit of Happyness, and I Am Legend. Three completely different movies.
yeah, big Willie style!
I didn't listen to anything they sang or danced or whatever. Smith is a good comedic actor. Wahlberg is good overall actor.
Really! Will smith over wahlberg? Wahlberg is much better actor.
... Idk the first choice
I-robot, 'nuff said
My daughter(24) said Mark because he has washboard abs that she would like to run her tongue over. . . . I never watched Fresh Prince and didn't realize Mark Wahlberg had been Marky Mark,so I guess that I am too old to care ;-)
Will smith was an actor turned pop star. Not an accurate question. And dirk digler all the way
Fresh prince by far!
Better pop star or actor? Probably Smith in either case?
Smith duhh I used to watch fresh prince all the time
I know who will smith is
I like mark better honestly.
This was very close for me. I think the only reason I picked Will Smith is because he's played some hilarious roles. Wahlberg is still a great actor though. Love both of them.
Mark wahlberg was a pop star?!
I'm a Philly girl so Invincible hit home for me but Will Smith has my childhood with Fresh Prince and all his movies now that I'm an adult. I voted for Will.
Feel the vibration or parents just don't understand.... Sexy Calvin Klein or cross colors ...... Invincible or independence day.... I have had a crush on mark since his music career so I went with him. I still watch fresh prince I love will he's a stand up guy
Great question. Both did well, but I think WS is better actor, but not my much.
Upstateny- A Perfect Storm? You rated Walberg on that? Stupid movie from hell.
Watch the one where he plays the guy in & from Philly (sorry, bf) that made the team & played for a few years. I hate Philly, but a great movie!
@nonono, you based your answer on his religion? Do you not see why that is just messed up? That's like me saying "I would hire you except your a Christian so I won't".
I think Walberg is a terrible actor! Will Smith is far more versatile.
So hard to choose!!! I love both
Who cares. Who are they?????
I didn't read the question...duh.
I chose Smith as the better pop star, but I would choose Wahlberg as the better actor.
Now let me tell ya a story All about how my life got twisted turned upside down
They both do alright. Smith is probably more memorable, though he gets typecast more often.
I never saw either one when they were pop-stars, so I know them only as actors. This was a tough choice because I like them both very much, but I had to go for Will Smith.
