Mark Wahlberg Chosen as Kids’ Choice Awards MC

The award show is filled with lots of fun. And one of the themes is getting all covered with gooey slime along with hundreds of other children. Among the previous MCs (Master of Ceremonies) are Will Smith, Justin Timberlake and Ben Stiller. Now, this year the man who will get to host the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is none other than Mark Wahlberg

Los Angeles is the venue for the event which is due on March 20th. Although Mark has played serious adult roles in movies such as Ted, Boogie Nights and Planet of the Apes, he has a wife and four children. In other words, this thespian is very comfortable around youngsters. So the show will not present any issues for him. 

The slime-filled time Mark Wahlberg will be having goes with the territory of Nickelodeon. The execs at Nickelodeon are very excited about Mark joining them at the event. Wahlberg started his show biz career as a rap artist. He was called Marky Mark back then. Then he went on to star in many movies and today he is an accomplished and fit actor

The man is expected to play roles in the next Transformer movie and in the reality TV series “Wahlburgers”. The nominees meanwhile are being selected for the Kids’ Choice Awards and Mark is preparing his lines for the occurrence.

With such awful reviews, it might be that my expectations were low, but I had a great time at "Transformers: Age of Extinction."
