Hollywood heavyweight Mark Wahlberg has been announced as the new face of Ladbrokes. 

The 49-year-old American star, who is known for roles including Ted and The Fighter, fronts a new campaign for the betting company. 

The campaign was filmed while Mark was in Australia in December and after he finished his two weeks of mandatory quarantine in Byron Bay.

In the ad, which was shared with News.com.au, Mark is dressed in a light suit and jumper, and wears pink glasses. 

The publication reports that he plays the alter ego ‘Mike Iceberg.’

He can be seen whispering the words ‘Ladbroke it,’ and laughing when a fire explodes in the background.

Mark also recently announced that he would be bringing his US burger chain Wahlburgers to Australia. 

Earlier last month, Mark teased a temporary move to Australia, after falling in love with the country on his recent business trip.

He told The Daily Telegraph that he’s hoping to shoot a movie on the Gold Coast soon and that he wants to bring his family with him.

‘Hopefully I’ll be able to move my family down to Australia for four to five months and make a movie on the Gold Coast and enjoy that beautiful country.’

Mark added that his wife, model Rhea Durham, ‘would fall in love with Australia’ if she visited.
