Mark WahlbergMark Wahlberg -- as he proves in this weekend's release, 'The Other Guys' (a film that I enjoyed quite a bit) -- has the quite rare ability to step directly into a comedic role after being known primarily for his work in action movies.

At this point, can you even imagine someone like Christian Bale trying to do a comedy? The list of actors who have come out unscathed is a short one: Arnold Schwarzenegger in 'Twins'? Maybe Vin Diesel in 'The Pacifier'? Dwayne Johnson in a few supporting roles (as he is in 'The Other Guys')?

The list is much longer for those who have failed. Let's take a look at the most prolific offenders.
