Actor Mark Wahlberg, appearing on national television to promote his new movie, also said people should see what's happening in Detroit.

"I'm shooting 'Transformers' right now in Detroit," Wahlberg said on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. "Detroit is not what people think. It's amazing. For example, my wife was terrified about coming to Detroit."

Wahlberg said his wife figured there would be nothing to do and nothing worth seeing, especially since the city had recently filed for bankruptcy. "I said no actually, it's really nice and they came and they had a blast," Wahlberg said.

He called Detroit, "a great, great city" and said he hopes people will continue to bring new business there and to continue helping the economy.

"I love the city and hopefully they will turn it around ," Wahlberg said.

Fallon also spoke highly of Detroit.
