Mark Wahlberg does the weather, traffic report for Philadelphia TV station

It seems like the thing these days for celebrities -- like Scarlett Johansson on "Today" and Prince Charles on the BBC -- to humanize themselves by filling in for meteorologists.

Actor Mark Wahlberg and his "Broken City" director Allen Hughes made a Wednesday interview with Fox 29's "Good Day Philadelphia" just a little more interesting by taking over as weathermen and traffic reporters.

Wahlberg's best line?

"We’re expecting 40- to 45-minute delays if you’re coming east bound on the 676 here. You’re going to have some serious problems. Why don’t you stop and get yourself a hoagie?”
