Rounding out third place for the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, was Mark Wahlberg, with $58 million. His Netflix film, “Spenser Confidential,” brought the streaming site its third most watched original movie since it debuted in March.
The “Central Intelligence” star recently made headlines with news that he had bought the XFL Football League.
With my trail blazing partner @DanyGarciaCo & Red Bird Capital, we have acquired the XFL.
With gratitude & passion I’ve built a career with my own two hands and will apply these callouses to our @xfl2020 brand.
Excited to create something special for the fans! #XFL #fullcircle pic.twitter.com/LprJ6HjglD
