Today, Ellen has those good vibrations, because MARK WAHLBERG is back! He’s one of the biggest actors in Hollywood, starring in action films like the “Transformers” series, and teaming up with Will Ferrell to make us laugh in films like “The Other Guys.” Mark is quite the family man on screen and off, with movies like “Daddy’s Home” and his newest film “Instant Family,” based on writer/director Sean Anders’ real-life adoption of three kids! Mark will tell Ellen all about the new movie when he stops by!
Then, Mark will be joined by his co-star and one of Ellen’s favorite people, TIG NOTARO! She’s endlessly hilarious, starring in shows like “One Mississippi,” and recently appearing in her own Netflix standup comedy special, “Tig Notaro: Happy to Be Here”! Tig knows a thing or two about family life, as she has a pair of twin boys of her own! She’s part of the all-star cast of “Instant Family,” and will join Mark and Ellen to talk about the film!
Plus, Ellen loves shining a light on incredible people and their stories, and today she welcomes the Zezulka family from Athens, GA. Paige and Daniel Zezulka learned about the lack of foster parents in their area, and decided to do something. They began to foster Ivey, a wonderful 10-year-old girl, and when they surprised Ivey with the news they were going to adopt her, the video of her finding out went viral, and over 40 million people watched the heartwarming surprise! Since then, Paige and Daniel adopted Ivey’s two siblings, so Ellen just had to have them on the show! Hear their amazing story today!
Now that’s a Tuesday, on Ellen!
