Donnie Wahlberg Does South Beach

PASADENA, CA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Donnie Wahlberg may have been a party animal when he was in New Kids On The Block, but, nowadays, even filming a movie in South Beach doesn’t get him to go out partying.

Wahlberg is starring alongside Jason Gedrick in an A&E TV movie called The Kings Of South Beach premiering March 12.

In the film, Walhberg plays the best friend of South Beach’s most famous club founder and says just because he filmed in the party hardy atmosphere, it doesn’t mean he was hitting up the clubs after work.

In fact, Wahlberg says the town wasn’t “his scene” and admits he chose “sleep over partying” while he was there.

Says Wahlberg: “I didn’t go out much like my character in the movie would have. But I enjoyed goofing around with the girls on the set. It was fun for an old married man like me.”

If Wahlberg ever visits South Beach again, he plans on going to the beach and maybe even grabbing a beer at a sports bar.

He adds, “Beer and beaches are more my style.”
