Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson talk about the making of Deepwater Horizon

  • Dylan O'Brien, left, and Mark Wahlberg in Deepwater Horizon, which was filmed in New Orleans and opens here Sept. 30.

"Make sure you get it right."

Sporting a simple black T-shirt, with waves of long brown hair cascading from his Wahlburgers-branded baseball cap, actor and producer Mark Wahlberg, fresh from his 6:30 a.m. tee time, recounts his local golf buddies' initial reaction to Deepwater Horizon: A certain skepticism, born of their belief in the story's importance.

The film, opening in theaters Friday, is a tense, often terrifying depiction of the blowout, explosion, and subsequent fire aboard the offshore oil-drilling rig on April 20, 2010, killing 11, injuring 17, and leading to the largest oil spill in U.S. history. It's Deepwater Horizon's focus on "the human tragedy" that motivated Wahlberg, who plays the rig's chief electronics technician, Mike Williams, to bring the project to fruition.

"When I realized that 11 people lost their lives, I was a bit surprised that there wasn't enough attention put on that," Wahlberg says, echoing co-stars Kate Hudson and Kurt Russell and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. In their recollections, it was the potential ecological consequences of the BP oil discharge, and not the disaster that started it, which broke through to the national consciousness in the spring and summer of 2010.

WWL-TV/Advocate poll very bad news for Vitter

Posted By on Mon, Sep 28, 2015 at 9:08 AM

Sen. David Vitter has lost more than a third of his support since April, according to the latest independent statewide poll in the governor’s race. He is tied for the primary lead with Democrat John Bel Edwards, but he loses trails in runoff match-ups against all of his opponents in the WWL-TV-Advocate survey. - CREATIVE COMMONS/DEREK BRIDGES

  • Sen. David Vitter has lost more than a third of his support since April, according to the latest independent statewide poll in the governor’s race. He is tied for the primary lead with Democrat John Bel Edwards, but he loses trails in runoff match-ups against all of his opponents in the WWL-TV-Advocate survey.



The first independent statewide survey since qualifying closed in the governor’s race shows U.S. Sen. David Vitter in trouble, despite the fact that he co-leads the field with Democrat state Rep. John Bel Edwards. The survey was taken by Clarus Research Group of Washington, D.C., for WWL-TV and The Advocate.

Here are the survey’s statewide results:
• John Bel Edwards 24%
• David Vitter 24%
• Scott Angelle 15%
• Jay Dardenne 14%
Five other candidates get 1% each, and “undecided” is at 18%. Vitter, Angelle and Dardenne are Republicans. Edwards is the only major Democrat.

How can Vitter be in trouble if he’s co-leading the poll?

Because since last April he has fallen from a high of 38% in a poll by Southern Media and Opinion Research (SMOR) — and being all alone atop the field — to just 24% (and tied for the lead with Edwards) in the Clarus poll. That’s a loss of more than one-third of his support since April.
