Donnie Wahlberg talks Super Bowl predictions

Donnie Wahlberg is known as an actor, writer, singer, and movie producer. But did you know the "Blue Bloods" star is also a New England Patriots fan?

Working in New York, the actor says, he's gotten a bit of friendly abuse from the "Blue Bloods" crew over the Giants-Patriots Super Bowl coming up Sunday.

"There are 150 people on our crew and everyone of them are cheering for the Giants except for me," he said on "CBS This Morning." "But I'm gonna be happy on Monday. "We did a scene the other day, and I'm sitting with my back to the desk. And when I turned around after they said, 'cut,' there was a framed picture of (the Giants') Eli Manning on my desk. They're wearing me out."

"So they have a sense of humor," Gayle King said.

"They do, they do," Wahlberg said, "And I hope it's in full effect when the Patriots have won the Super Bowl."

Wahlberg said his mother, who sometimes makes predictions, says the Patriots will win. Wahlberg said he trusts her intuition, because she correctly predicted that a song he wrote for his brother, Mark Wahlberg, "Good Vibrations," would go to No. 1 on the charts for two weeks.

"She doesn't make a lot of predictions, but when she does, she's right," Wahlberg said.

In addition to talk about the Super Bowl, Wahlberg shared a preview of a controversial moment in Friday night's new episode of "Blue Bloods." He also discussed his brother's recent comments about 9/11. For all that and more, click on the video in the player above.
