Mark Wahlberg Dishes on 'The Fighter 2'

"Extra's" Mario Lopez caught up with "The Fighter" star Mark Wahlberg as he was arriving to the 83rd Academy Awards -- and the actor hinted there might be a sequel to his Oscar-nominated film.

"Now we're gonna talk about doing No. 2," Wahlberg explained. "We're gonna do the Ward /Gatti trilogy and make it real," referring to the real-life Mickey Ward's three fights with his most fierce opponent, Arturo Gatti. "And you know what? You may want to play Gatti," the actor laughed with Lopez.

As for "The Fighter" being nominated, Wahlberg said, "It's crazy. We're just thrilled to be here. I told my wife, as a guy, you don't just want to go to the finals, you want to win. So we definitely want to win, but I'm not gonna be disappointed. I know at least two of my co-stars are gonna win. And the movie's been such a success, $90 million at the box office already!:
