Trivia that mentions this person:

    The Rundown [2003]
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger's cameo was filmed the same day he filmed his appearance as the Terminator for the Super Bowl. It was completely unprepared. He happened onto the set that day and was asked to make a quick appearance in the film. Fans and movie enthusiasts often cite his saying "Have fun" to Dwayne Johnson as a passing of the torch to an action hero of the next generation.
    The Scorpion King [2002]
  • Dwayne Johnson has said that he intentionally shied away from using any trademarks of his WWF character The Rock, in order to give the Scorpion King character a life of its own. The only exception was "The People's Eyebrow," which he does in response to another character's reference to a harem. He said he included the People's Eyebrow to acknowledge the "millions and millions" of Rock fans. However, The Rock's Entry music is included briefly in the score.
  • While filming the fight scene between Mathayus and Balthazar, Michael Clarke Duncan accidentally leaned too far forward, allowing Dwayne Johnson's elbow to make direct contact with his jaw, knocking him to the ground.
  • Dwayne Johnson's payday of $5.5 million made the Guinness Book Of Records for the highest salary for a first-time leading man.
  • Director Chuck Russell wanted to incorporate a physical feat into the movie which only The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) could perform. That is why there is a scene where the Rock springs to his feet from a position where he is lying on his back. Russell said that he had never seen a 6'3" man do that.
    G.I. Joe: Retaliation [2013]
  • This film was originally scheduled to be released on June 29, 2012. Paramount had begun a substantial ad campaign which began in February with an expensive ad during the Super Bowl. But in May 2012, Paramount announced they were delaying the film's release until March 29, 2013 in order to to add 3D effects. It was later revealed that the real reason for the delay was for reshoots including more scenes with Channing Tatum. Test audiences wanted more scenes between Tatum and Dwayne Johnson and Tatum suddenly became a box-office star with the successes of The Vow and 21 Jump Street.
  • Dwayne Johnson ("The Rock") is the second WWE (formerly WWF) wrestler to appear as a Joe. The first was Sgt. Slaughter.
  • As a wrestler, Dwayne Johnson ("The Rock") was known for the line "Do you smell what The Rock is cooking?" In this film, he plays Roadblock who in the original comics was a chef.
    The Wolverine [2013]
  • To prepare for the role, Hugh Jackman contacted Dwayne Johnson for advice on bulking up for the movie. Johnson suggested Jackman could gain a pound a week over six months (24 weeks) by eating 6,000 calories a day of "an awful lot of chicken, steak and brown rice." He said that for his shirtless scenes in the film, he wanted to look "as ripped and cut as possible". So he adopted a dehydration diet (used in bodybuilding) where he did not consume any liquid for 36 hours before filming his shirtless shots. He said it made him feel "headachy" and faint but he was pleased with the results as dehydrating tightens everything up and gave him the exaggerated muscle definition and vascularity that he wanted to show in his shirtless scenes.
    Transformers: Age of Extinction [2014]
  • Dwayne Johnson was offered the role of Cade Yeager, but he declined due to scheduling conflicts with his movie Hercules (2014).
    Alice in Wonderland [2010]
  • Dwayne Johnson and David Walliams were considered for the role of The Mad Hatter.
    Moana [2016]
  • Moana's father has a tattoo that is reminiscent of Dwayne Johnson's Samoan tribal tattoos on his left pectoral muscle and left arm. Many other characters have either tattoos similar to Johnson's tattoo or the actual tattoo.
  • Dwayne Johnson had always wanted to work with directors John Musker and Ron Clements, having loved Aladdin when it came out in 1992 and his daughter loved both Aladdin and The Little Mermaid.
  • With actors/actresses consisting of Dwayne Johnson, Auli'i Cravalho, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Jemaine Clement, Nicole Scherzinger, Oscar Kightley, and Troy Polamalu, this marks the first time where Polynesians performers are the main focus of a Disney/Hollywood film.
  • First musical film for Dwayne Johnson. Dwayne Johnson is a firm believer that voice-acting is the most difficult career in acting, and is personally annoyed by celebrities being cast in animated films despite their bad delivery in voicing their characters. When Johnson was cast for the film, he repeatedly asked the other voice-actors present if he was indeed giving a good performance.
  • Most characters in Moana's village have either variations of the tattoos Maui's voice actor Dwayne Johnson has in real life or the actual tattoos.
    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle [2017]
  • The scene in which Dr. Bravestone (played by Dwayne Johnson) returns the "Jaguar's Eye" to the statue of the Jaguar coincidentally parallels Johnson's role as Maui in the film Moana. The story begins with Maui removing a green stone (the Heart of Te Fiti) from her island, which he must later return to save the island and its people.
  • Dwayne Johnson coincidentally starred in The Rundown, which was originally called "Welcome to the Jungle" and known as that in other countries.
  • Nick Jonas thought the tunnel scene was a lot of fun to shoot. "I got to show Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Dwayne Johnson around a bunch of tunnels to save their lives. It's the kind of stuff you dream about as an actor.
  • Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are known for their intensive workout routines, but it was Karen Gillan - whose character is an expert in various martial arts and "dance fighting" - who did the most extensive work with the stunt team to learn the fight choreography for her scenes.
  • Dwayne Johnson found his character of Spencer/Dr. Bravestone all too relatable. At age 16, he resembled a 46-year-old man, standing at 6'4, weighing 245 pounds, and sporting a thick mustache. Despite his bulky exterior, the young Dwayne was very much a vulnerable teen trying to find himself.
  • If Dwayne Johnson could play any other role in the film he'd play Bethany. "I know how much fun (Jack) had every day playing a 16 year old self obsessed girl."
  • Jack Black jokes that he was not acting in the scenes when his character was infatuated with Dwayne Johnson's character. He was in fact actually infatuated and the cameras just kept on rolling.
    The Expendables 3 [2014]
  • Dwayne Johnson, Clint Eastwood, and Milla Jovovich were considered for a role.
