What took so long? Former pro wrestling star turned actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Dec. 13 ceremony will honor Johnson in the motion pictures category for his status as a global box-office powerhouse.
“Not only does Dwayne have a great personality and talent, but he also does a great amount of philanthropic work which is part of the criteria for earning an immortal spot on the Walk of Fame,” producer of Walk of Fame ceremonies Ana Martinez said. “We envision scores of photos being taken at his star by his fans.”
Johnson will soon be seen alongside Kevin Hart and Jack Black in Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” which hits theaters Dec. 20. Next year, he’ll star in Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” based on the theme park ride, along with the upcoming films “Rampage” and “Skyscraper.”
Besides the flicks, the Rock also stars in HBO’s Ballers, which is produced by his own Seven Bucks Productions.
This is where we also mention that he is a Black man.
Congratulations to Dwayne Johnson.
