On April 20, 2010, BP’s ultra-deep-water, advanced oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded in the Gulf of Mexico creating one of the largest man-made disasters in recorded history. For 87 days, the world watched heartbreakingly as more than 50,000 barrels of oil a day gushed into the Gulf killing marine life and sullying the shores all around the Gulf. It would become the largest accidental ocean oil spill in human history.

Mark Wahlberg stars in the new docu-movie Deep Water Horizon as the real-life trans-ocean chief electronics technician Mike Williams on the rig. In an interview with Good Morning America, Mark explained the physical challenges that came with filming the movie and it included some terrifying stunts.
