Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has successfully tackled the competition through WWE as well as multiple film roles. He has been everything from the Tooth Fairy to The Scorpion King to a Fast & Furious CIA road warrior. What has he not done?
He hasn’t taken on Mother Earth just yet; however, this is all about to change. Dwayne has recently been in the final stages of signing on to star in New Line Cinema’s earthquake disaster flick, San Andreas. The film will be directed by Brad Peyton who previously worked with Dwayne on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

Fans who can’t seem to get enough of the buff star have been given sneak peaks into his upcoming summer 2014 movie, Hercules: The Thracian Wars, (not to be confused with Hercules: The Legend Begins starring Kellan Lutz that is also due for a 2014 release) through Facebook and Twitter posts that Dwayne Johnson has shared.

Even though Dwayne Johnson looks every inch the archetype of the tough demigod hero, Hercules, he has garnered a strong fan base for showing his funnier and softer side. In interviews and pictures the popular movie star has shown that in spite of his masculine physique, he does not take himself too seriously.
Noting Dwayne Johnson’s charisma explains why his films have been so successful and grossed such high amounts. According to Box Office Mojo, the 2013 combined lifetime movie gross for Dwayne Johnson films (Fast & Furious 6, Pain and Gain, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and Snitch) totaled $454,008,663. What other WWE champ could be so universally loved for sporting the milk mustache while wearing rocket pajamas?
