While many knew the hysterical Penny Marshall as Laverne on the massive TV hit Laverne and Shirleyshe went on to follow her brother Garry Marshall’s footsteps and became a respected director, directing many movies including League Of Their Own and Big.

One her most brilliant moments came when she witnessed a young, pop-rap star named Marky Mark in a video called Good Vibrations. It was reported that when she saw that video, she immediately called Wahlberg to discuss an acting career with a role in her then upcoming movie Renaissance Man. Reportedly Mark said, “I’m not an actor.” Penny replied: “just be the guy in the video.” Some great things never change.
