Mark Wahlberg sneaks up on a pal at the Cinema Society’s New York premiere of The Fighter on Friday night. The film, which is currently in limited release and opens nationwide on Friday, December 17, stars Wahlberg as the real-life figure Micky Ward, a professional boxer who fights to redeem his brother’s mistakes and keep his family afloat. Wahlberg has already drawn serious Oscar buzz for his performance—and, presumably, his peek-a-boo skills.
