Mark Wahlberg to the Rescue: Marky Mark Says He'd Reunite the Funky Bunch, to Help Boston


 may be coming to the aid of Boston, his hometown.  He says he would reunite MARKY MARK AND THE FUNKY BUNCH to raise money for the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing.

Technically, it wasn't Mark's idea.  The paparazzi asked him if he'd do a, "once in a lifetime concert" with the Funky Bunch to help the city, and Mark said, "Absolutely . . . why not?"  (Here's video.)

Last month, Mark said he MIGHT reunite the Funky Bunch, they just had to, "find the right time." Well, THIS would be the right time. And just days after Mark's comment, the Funky Bunch said they'd be down. Naturally. We realize that Mark was sort of cornered into this by the paparazzi, but it NEEDS to happen. As Mark said, WHY NOT?

Last year, Mark said that he was supposed to be on one of the hijacked planes on 9/11, and said that if he WERE there, "It wouldn't have went down like it did.") (Well, this is his chance to BE A HERO and help out in the aftermath of a terrorist attack. What better way to stick it in the face of terrorists everywhere than by REMAINING FUNKY???
