Who better than Dwayne Johnson to take on the role of the mighty son of Zeus?
Over the last seven plus months, while most mere mortals were catching some zzzz’s at 3:30 in the morning, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was probably up and already at the gym or eating a massive plate of protein. Yes, just when you thought “The Rock” couldn’t possibly get into better shape, this week he makes his debut in the title role of the mightiest of muscular heroes, Hercules.
One of the most disciplined (and adorable) of brawny men, Johnson upped his training to keep his extraordinary physique in check for the role. He also has a natural charm that makes it easy for him to connect with fans when we’re not staring at his muscles.
