Mel Gibson and Mark Wahlberg play father and son in this movie. In their real lives, Gibson and Wahlberg have in common the fact that both have been arrested and convicted for crimes related to racism or other bigotry. Gibson's 2006 arrest for DUI involved leveling antisemitic and sexist slurs against his arresting officers (he pleaded no contest to the DUI charge and was sentenced to rehab and three years of probation), while Wahlberg was arrested and served time for several different racially motivated anti-black and anti-Asian crimes during the mid- to late-1980s.
