Actor Dwayne Johnson and his big ole muscly self were seen yesterday for the first time on the set of Pain and Gain.
The Rock joined actors Anthony Mackie and Mark Wahlberg to shoot a few scenes. While Mark is a bulky guy, I forgot how truly massive Johnson is (he’s six-foot five). In these photos Dwayne looks like a giant standing next to Wahlberg.
Johnson will be named Action Star of the Year at CinemaCon this year. CinemaCon general manager Mitch Neuhauser said: “An exciting performer who first gained attention from audiences around the world when he developed the iconic character The Rock, Dwayne Johnson has taken his charismatic presence to the big screen and has proven over and over again that he can entertain audiences of all ages – whether it be an action-paced film or a family comedy. “
“He thrills audiences around the world with exhilarating performances that leave them on the edge of their seats, and I cannot think of someone more worthy of being named the CinemaCon Action Star of the Year.”
