At first I thought that The Rock cannot acts! His face only has one facial expression and he looks kinda funny when he's laughing. ha ha.. seriously.

But now he has diversified (his expression I mean) and building his name in Hollywood slowly but steadily. The best movie I have watched is Gridiron Gang. About American football coach, coaching prisoners. The movie is based on the true story. GO CHECK IT OUT!

and the most recent is The Game Plan. He is really COOKING right now. or should I say, BOILING?? lol. Looking forward to see more of his movie

mrviruz said...

Oh do you? Glad to hear that.

Waliz,
you know, maybe I can sense your mind in some way, so maybe I'm more dangerous than you lol

bluedreamer27,
hehe thx for liking my first actor post. Glad to hear that you also one of his fan.

bluecrystaldude
If he can do well as a pro wrestler in which he in fact did, I believe he can do equally or even better in movie.

nice to see you back too

1-2-3 tang tang tang. I am the Winner!!! said...

"Can you smell what's the Rock cooking?" This is the favourite quote from the Rock, when he was still a wrestler. I had been watching wrestling since very young. The Rock left me a good impression when he was a wrestler. He fought for the honour and glory and gave everything just for the championship belt. I think he is more successful in his acting career than Hulk Hogan. That remind me of other wrestlers.

There were Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Sgt Slaughter, Bush Wacker, Region of Doom, Macho Man, Audey the Giant, Brat the Hitman, Shawn Michael, Lex Luger, Yokozuna, Undertaker, Million Dollar Man, Big Daddy Cool, 1-2-3 Kid... Every time, there was SummerSlam or Royal Rumble or King of the Ring, i would just stay up late to watch till the end. Last time, wrestling was really a good sport worth watching. Now wrestling is more like a show of pretended fighting.
