Your favorite Boston slang?
Dirtball or maggot. With the accent, they're Boston insults.
How did you make the leap from music to film?
I never tried to juggle both. I stopped releasing records and only concentrated on acting.
Weren't you acting when you were rapper Marky Mark?
I was acting well before that. I've always been a con artist, trying to talk my way out of trouble or into it.
Did you keep any of your Boogie Nights wardrobe?
I kept a key prop. I've got it locked away in a closet in my office. I don't usually keep things from movies, but that thing could be valuable one day. I could sell it on eBay.
You were supposed to be on a morning flight out of Boston on 9/11. Why didn't you go?
I left Boston a week earlier. My friends and I decided to charter a plane and go up to Canada to go to see a friend's film at the Toronto Film Festival.
How realistic is Entourage's depiction of actors' extravagant spending?
The first purchase I made when I got a check for $100,000 was a Mercedes for $100,000. I didn't have money left over for insurance and gas.
Who's in your entourage now?
The new entourage is my girls, a nanny, a diaper bag. You're supposed to grow up and become responsible.
I never pegged you as a golfer.
It's the sport that I vowed never to play because I like contact sports. It seems like it shouldn't even be called a sport, but it's the most challenging, relaxing, frustrating game ever invented.
