The way Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been bodyslamming Hollywood as of late has just been remarkable to witness.
For his next powerbomb, the San Andreas star is embracing premium television for HBO’s Ballers. Johnson stars as Spencer Strasmore, a retired athlete-turned-hotshot-sports-agent in the land of fast cars and women of Miami. The series was created by Steve Levinson and will be directed by Pete Berg.
Proud of their latest venture, the Home Box Office and the American Black Film Festival rented out The Skylark in the heart of midtown Manhattan for special event.
Real-life “baller” Victor Cruz, as were actors Lance Gross, Cory Hardrict and EXTRA’s A.J. Calloway. DJ Wonder was also enlisted to proved the night’s soundtrack.
HBO’s Ballers will premiere on June 21, 2015 (don’t sleep on HBO Now). Flip through the gallery below (ladies!) to see the guests from the HBO’s Ballers reception.
