“Mark Wahlberg is the definition of a modern day Renaissance Man: from Dirk Diggler to The Departed, The Basketball Diaries to Ted, Entourage to The Fighter, in front of the camera and behind – he’s done it all and he’s always memorable,” said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. “Mark has captivated the MTV audience for over 20 years, and for this rare feat, we’re proud to recognize him with this year’s Generation Award.”
Wahlberg joins a list of actors who’ve received the Movie Awards‘ highest honor that includes Jamie Foxx, Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Sandra Bullock, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise, and Jim Carrey.
Conan O’Brien’s making his MTV Movie Awards hosting debut with the show which will be airing live on Sunday, April 13 from downtown LA.
