Wahlberg and Will Ferrell play cops in the comedy who chase down Jeter's character, a homeless bum, when he won't stop after repeated requests on the cops' part. To stop him, Wahlberg fires.
"They call me the Yankee clipper in the movie," Wahlberg told the News.
"The part was written for me. I can't wait to see this with an audience in Boston," he said.
Wahlberg cracked a joke about Jeter's acting chops, saying the baller could only have a career in Hollywood if he got a little lucky.
"An acting career? If he reeeallly works on it," he joked.
Wahlberg will also star this season in thriller "The Lovely Bones" as the father of a murdered teenager.
