Where to Find Dirk’s Diggler

Perhaps this is common knowledge in Hollywood, but it was still news to FishbowlLA.

During an Australian interview for his latest movie Contraband, actor Mark Wahlberg got a great final throwaway question from 7.30 current affairs show co-host Chris Uhlmann. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reporter posed, “Look, I have to ask this question – what happened to the prosthesis we saw at the end of Boogie Nights?”, to which the actor replied:

“It’s one of the only props that I’ve ever kept from a movie, and I still have it in my house, locked in my safe.”

Gives a whole new meaning to the concept of safeguarding the family jewels. Uhlmann followed up by asking if the prop kept Wahlberg humble, to which the actor replied, “Yes, it would keep anybody humble.” Damn (long and) straight.
