We all know that being an actor implies a lot of work, and it's not only reading scenarios, getting into a role, acting in any conditions. It's actually all about getting into a role, becoming more like your character, being him or her for a long time, acting like him or her, looking like him or her. There are incredible examples of how good actors went through massive changes for their upcoming movies. Like Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey have gone through weight changes. But the actor and producer Mark Wahlberg got into gambling very seriously to get ready to act in his upcoming movie.

Wahlberg has told to the audience of Jimmy Fallon's “The Tonight Show” that he has lost $45 000 on a single roulette spin in Macau just recently and that was a part of preparation for his new movie “The Gambler” . He came to the Wynn casino with empty pockets, but borrowed a few dolars from his friends. He first went to the blackjack table where he hit 21 three times, winning $45 000.

Then Wahlberg went to a roulette table where he put all his winnings on black. This time the luck wasn't on his side and he lost what he'd just won.

The actor said that he still left the casino with a smile, as in the end, that was only a part of getting into the role. His example is very extreme, but it shows that one should wager cautiously and never bet the entire bankroll on one bet.
