The Heart-Warming Reason Mark Wahlberg Was in La Grande, Ore.
Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg was spotted filming and working in La Grande, Ore., on Monday.
Wahlberg is working on an upcoming film project about Jadin Bell, a student at La Grande High School who committed suicide. His father, Joe Bell, then undertook a walk across the country to raise awareness about bullying and suicide -- but sadly, he was killed outside of Kit Carson, Colo., in 2013.
The movie doesn't have a release date yet, but it has been in development since 2015 by the producers of "Brokeback Mountain" and appears to be filming in La Grande.
It's a tragic story on all fronts with one silver lining: Faces for Change created a scholarship in honor of Jadin Bell.
