The actor, whose real name is Dwayne Johnson, will play the titular role of Paul Janson, a former operative turned private security consultant, who is framed for the murder of a Nobel laureate and must join forces with a former protege who was sent to kill him.

Since leaving the WWE Johnson has had success in the film industry. Most notably his role of Luke Hobbs in the Fast & Furious series.

Details on Lawsuit Claiming The Rock & Mark Wahlberg Stole “BALLERS”

ballers-hbo

Things could be heating up for Mark Wahlberg and The Rock, the creators of the HBO series Ballers. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, two people are claiming that the idea for the show was stolen from them.

According to a lawsuit filed in federal court, Everette Silas and Sherri Littleton say they had the idea for a project called “Off Season” back in 2007.

They claim they were close to a deal in 2009 to work with Wahlberg, Johnson and their manager to develop the project … but it fell apart when Silas and Littleton insisted their names remain under “Created By” in the credits. 

Silas and Littleton claim “Off Season” and “Ballers” share several similarities, including:

— Both are about football players and their lives off-field 
— Both set in Miami
— Both center around African-American athletes

HBO did tell TMZ that they believe the case will soon be over with no repercussions. We shall see how it unfolds.

Look at Dwayne being a hero and incorporating a message to all his fans.

The Rock just posted a picture of himself in a pool, soaking wet, holding two adorable French bulldogs with a story about how he saved one of them from a certain death.

The pups hadn’t been home a minute before they made a brazen attempt to swim. Only The Rock can make such a story inspirational.

therockHere’s a fun Labor Day weekend story… We just decided to add two new members to our Johnson family. Baby French Bulldogs. In my right hand is BRUTUS and in my left hand is HOBBS.
Bring them home and immediately take them outside so they can start learning how to “handle their business and potty like big boys”. I set them both down and they both take off in a full sprint and fall right into the deep end of our pool. HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the pool.
I take off into a full sprint, fully clothed, dive in the pool, swim to the bottom, rescue my brick, I mean BRUTUS and bring him back to the edge of the pool. He was a little delirious.. took a moment, threw up all the water he swallowed and looked up at me as if to say, “Thank God you didn’t have to give me mouth to mouth!” and then ran off to play with his brother.
A few lessons I’ve learned today.. A) Not all puppies have the instinct to doggie paddle. B) Some puppies (like BRUTUS) will be so in shock by experiencing water they will sink extremely fast so react quick. C) While spiriting to save your puppies life, before you dive in, try and throw your cel phone to safety. Don’t keep it in your pocket… like I did.

The Rock Hints At Record Breaking WrestleMania 32 Match

the-rock-wrestlemania-32

Despite eating 10 pounds of food per day to remain the top action hero on the big screen, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson still yearns for the love from packed WWE crowds.

During a recent sit down with SI’s Extra Mustard, The Rock hinted at an explosive Wrestlemania 32 matchup that would shatter attendance records.

Rock hasn’t hinted at an opponent yet, but he has been texting an emailing with WWE power brokers about making it happen.

“Myself, Vince, Triple H have talked about creating something that is amazing. Any time for me, going back into the WWE, especially if it’s a match – and these guys know this because of the open dialogue between me and Triple H – the question is, can we create, in terms of a promotional scale for the fans, something better than what we did in Miami and back-to-back in New York with John Cena? Can we put together something that’s different but equally, if not more, exciting? So there’s a lot of elements involved that we continue to talk about and chop up. That’s the coolest part about the relationship I have with the McMahons, including Triple H. Look, the platform is there. You have Dallas and could set an attendance record, so that’s the first goal. And then what is the match that allows us to do that? I’ve had incredible matches with Triple H, so I’m not ruling it out, but I’m not saying it is going to happen. We continue to talk about it, and we’re still shooting each other text messages. He sent me a message from Dallas that said, ‘This could be us. The record is ours.’ So we’ll see.”

Rock is a regular at Wrestlemania, but it will be interesting to see who and what would make Mania 32 in Dallas must see.

The Rock’s Mother Survives Head on Collision With Drunk Driver (Photo)

the rock, LuckThe Rock has suffered a moment that no one wants to, his mother and cousin were recently involved in a drunk driving crash. His mother’s car was hit head on and luckily both his mother and cousin walked away. While The Rock is happy to report that his family is ok, he has also used the accident to warn people of the dangers getting behind a wheel can cause.

Via Facebook:

rock, luck


My mom and cousin (Lina Fanene) were struck head on by a drunk driver this week – they survived. My first reaction was to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them. But then you realize the most important thing is that my family lived thru this and we can hug each other that much tighter these days. Hug your own family that much tighter today and be grateful you can look them in the eyes and say, “I love you”. Bear hugs and gratitude. Drunk driving accidents are 100% preventable. #ChoicesMatter

The Rock’s family is blessed to be one of the few who make it from drunk driving accidents. His message is very true; hug your family members. Life is too short and we never know when we are going to be taken from this earth whether at our own hands or others. With the senseless murders going on and reckless drivers, hold on to your family and appreciate all the moments you all will share.
