Actor, producer, and songwriter Mark Wahlberg, was in La Grande on Sunday night to do research for a film he’s working on about the late Jadin and Joe Bell, who were both from La Grande. Jadin Bell died when he was just 15 years old. He committed suicide in 2013 for being the subject of homophobic bullying. His father, Joe Bell, wanted to raise awareness about his son’s struggles and went on a 5,000 mile walk across America. Joe Bell was hist by a car and killed in Colorado. According to Wahlberg’s agent, the film is in its very early stages.
