Mark Wahlberg will feature in the 'Entourage' movie.

The 'Ted' actor - who served as executive producer on the HBO TV show about a young actor and his friends living the high life in Hollywood - has confirmed he will appear in the film version which is due for release next year.

Mark also made cameos in the TV show, which ran for eight seasons between 2004 and 2011, and starred Adrien Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven.

Quizzed about the film's plot, the star said: "Vince is an actor, so there's definitely a movie in there.

"Johnny Drama will be trying to get a job, not much has changed but we do want to get back to the guys being together again.

"They were all involved in very heavy relationships with strong female characters and we want to see the guys being the guys again."

Mark added that 'Mr. Selfridge' star Jeremy's character, Hollywood agent Ari Gold, will be "crazier than ever".

During its TV lifespan, 'Entourage' received 25 Emmy Award nominations - with Jeremy earning three Best Supporting Actor awards - and 14 Golden Globe nominations.

The series was famous for its slew of A-list guest stars, including Jessica Alba, Martin Scorsese and Eminem.

'Entourage' is tentatively due for release in 2014.
