BOSTON (CBS) — Dorchester’s own Mark Wahlberg is now the world’s highest-paid actor.
Forbes magazine says Wahlberg earned $68 million over 12 months.
He knocked out Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who held the top spot last year.
His family also stars in the locally shot reality show “Wahlburgers” at the family’s restaurant chain.
Forbes says that despite a tough year at the box office for his movies, Wahlberg still raked in big paydays for his starring roles in “Transformers: The Last Knight,” and “Deepwater Horizon.”
