The Project May 23-27

It’s a star-studded week on The Project with Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling, Dami Im, 360, Anne Hathaway and  Sacha Baron Cohen.

Actor Mark Wahlberg may be best known for his roles in Hollywood blockbusters, but he is also one of the masterminds behind successful US burger bar, Wahlburgers, alongside his two brothers. In an Australian television exclusive, Peter Helliar chats with Mark about his role in Optus’ Small and Medium Business campaign encouraging others to believe big and follow their dreams.

Stars of The Nice Guys, Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, chat with The Project’s new entertainment correspondent Xavier Brinkman ahead of the movie’s release next week.  

After blowing everyone away with her stellar performance, and placing second at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Dami Im returns home to chat about the competition and subsequent success of her single Sound Of Silence.

It is Nigella week on MasterChef Australia and The Project’s cameras go behind the scenes at Thursday’s master class to get some tips from our favourite foodie, plus the team chat with this week’s eliminated contestants.

Matt Colwell, better known as the platinum selling 360, is Australia’s most successful rapper and hip hop artist. He has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, supported Eminem and amassed over 21 million views for his self-produced video raps. He drops by the studio on Thursday to chat about his role in Aussie independent film Is This The Real World and his 180 Movement.
