Marky Mark is adding another family member to his Hollywood Funky Bunch!

RadarOnline.com has learned Mark Wahlberg is helping introduce Tinsel Town to his nephew, Jeffrey.

The 19-year-old is already earning raves for his breakout role in the upcoming film Don't Come Back From The Moon, and will soon begin filming another feature opposite James Franco and Mila Jovovich.

An insider tells Radar that Mark saw so much promise in Jeffrey that he plucked him out of his Boston neighborhood over a year ago and moved him up into his Hollywood Hills' mansion.

"Mark told him, 'If you show me you're serious and that you're really willing to put in the work, I'll help make things happen,'" the source said.

Radar has also learned Uncle Mark is so proud of his protégé that he's set aside $2 million for Jeffrey to option a script as a star-vehicle for himself.

Mark will even produce it and make sure it gets made!
