The imprisoned  Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger is trying to get hold of Mark Wahlberg, the actor says.

The meeting is only speculation at this point, reports [2] The Inquisitr, but it seems plausible Bulger wants Wahlberg to portray his likeness in a possible biopic on the criminal.

“I actually got a call about coming to see Whitey, he wants me to come down and visit him,” Wahlberg has previously said to Reuters. “Maybe he’ll give me the exclusive rights to tell his story, because he knows we can do it better than anybody else.”

Bulger was a long-time informant for the FBI at the same time he ran a vast criminal enterprise in Boston, which later caused much embarrassment to the bureau. When the FBI decided to indict Bulger on murder charges he took off as and lived for 16 years as a fugitive, making the FBI’s Top Ten most wanted list before being arrested last year.
