Dwayne Johnson: the Hollywood Heavyweight Who Manhandled His Way to the Top

With his endless charisma, jacked body, and sardonic wit, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has become the world’s highest-paid actor.

Johnson earned a cool $64.5 million last year, according to Forbes, and currently has a whopping 26 films in development to be released in the next several years.

Coming from WWE, where his big-hearted, eyebrow-raising The Rock character was invented, Johnson is both a kick-butt action-adventure star (San Andreas) and a comedic leading man (Central Intelligence, Baywatch).

Up next: his sequel to Robin Williams’ Jumanjiin theaters in December—just the present The Rock’s fans have been waiting for.
