Mark Wahlberg to be an Avon man?

Mark Wahlberg could become a door-to-door beauty salesman in upcoming comedy Avon Man.

The Contraband star is rumoured to be in talks to play the lead and produce the film with director Stephen Levinson, reported Deadline.

He would portray an unemployed car dealer who reluctantly becomes an Avon salesman, and even convinces his macho jobless friends to join him.

Hugh Jackman had previously been attached to the lead role, with Kevin Lima to direct, but plans changed when the actor left for The Wolverine.

Mark - who is currently filming Michael Bay's Pain & Gain with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson - will next appear in comedy Ted and crime drama Broken City.
