DWAYNE JOHNSON EYES ROLE IN ‘EXPENDABLES 2′


Saturday, November 27, 2010

Dwayne JohnsonDWAYNE Johnson wants to star in Sylvester Stallone‘s upcoming Expendables sequel.

The actor — who’s best known for his action roles in The Scorpion King and Doom — says he’d love to take part in the follow up to the hugely successful movie, as long as the script is good enough.

“It all depends on the material. I’ve known Sly for a long time now and he’s a buddy of mine so it all depends on the material,” he said.

Dwayne also insisted he is grounded and prefers to be “nice” than come across as “self-absorbed”.

“Not only do I think being nice and kind easy but being kind, in my opinion, is important,” he said.

“It’s easy to be a bad ass, it’s easy to act like a bad ass, easy to act like a tough guy, it’s easy to be a diva, and it’s easy to be self absorbed. I always just find it more important to be nice and kind.”

Dwayne — who used to wrestle under the name The Rock — recently admitted he was a “violent” child.

“I was just always into violence when I was younger. I was just a real violent kid,” he said.

“But growing up in Hawaii, it’s always lots of fighting and then everybody makes up — I love you, you love me, let’s have a beer; what about a barbecue?

“I didn’t come from a broken home, I had very loving parents. I was just making poor decisions.”

However, his background did not inform his later career as an action star, as he wanted to work on other styles of film.

“I wanted to break out of the action genre,” he said. “I stopped and said, ‘I’d like to do a comedy next,’ Then I’d like to do a little drama. It was just a matter of just resetting for a moment, taking a beat.”[imagebrowser id=857]

  • Raheel

    After reading what he “want to do” in his movie career – And watching his movie performance going down to pathetic, I guess I’ll just have to wait for the “Self Destruction of The Rock” dvd !!!!

  • Thomas

    Actually, Dwayne Johnson would be great in the sequel. Yeah, haters gonna hate about his previous films, but his acting is more suited towards this type of movie. He has my stamp of approval anyway…

    • http://DS THE ROCK

      YOU BRAINLESS SACK OF SHIT ! WHY ARE COMPLAINING OF THE ROCK BEING OUT THERE DOING HIS BEST ? ! WHERE IN THE FUCK ARE YOU ? YOU PIECE OF SHIT ? I DONT THINK YOU’RE RICH AND FAMOUS AND THAT IS WHY YOU ARE JEALOUS.

  • Brad

    This loser nigger wannabe actor ought to be shot! The only reason he had a chance at making movies in the first place is because he’s a Nigger! And he was carried by all the other pro wrestlers! He has no acting ability whatsoever except for maybe playing Buh-Wheat on SNL!

    • From Da Heart

      I think he’d be a great addition to the sequel. Brad it’s one thing not to like somebody but what’s with the rascism. If you’re basing your opinion on someone based on their race instead of a person’s character or talent then you need to grow up; it’s 2010. You said, “He has no acting ability whatsoever”, I disagree but would of respected your opinion if you would of left it at that. But after reading your racist rant, I can’t respect that.

      You are pathetic excuse for a human being!

      • mike

        he’s not even black you idiot he’s samoan, he grew up in hawii. did you even read the article? im guessing you’re just a little kid with a racist father.

      • joemagnum611

        Actually he’s half Samoan and half black. Still no reason for all these racist comments

      • Ice

        Dude, his father is Rocky Johnson (Afro-Canadian) and his mother is Samoan.I’m pretty certain that he’s half black. But whatever. There’s no point for the racist attitude. The racist comments are just from an ignorant degenerate.

    • Seanbo

      Hey, moron, he’s Samoan; secondly, what kind of a jack-wagon are you? Sounds to me like you’re jealous, or the Rock used to beat up your favorite wrestler, or maybe you’re in love with him secretly and lash out with ignorance and hatred as a form of denial..?
      Hmmm…idiot.

    • Troubleman

      Have you lost your mind? I mean, how is it that you can disrespect a mans ethnicity when you know we’ve (black folks) influenced nearly every facet of white America… from our music to our style of dress. Not to mention your basic imitation of our sense of cool; walk, talk, dress, mannerisms… We enrich your very existence, all the while contributing to the gross national product through our achievements in corporate America. It’s these conceits that comfort me when I am faced with the ignorant, cowardly, bitter and bigoted, who *have* no talent, no guts? People like you, who desecrate things they don’t understand when the truth is – you should say thank-you, man and go on about your way. But apparently you are incapable of doing that! So…Wht don’t you call your wife/sister from the other side of the trailer and have her get you another beer bubba.

      • Tight

        Well Put troubleman, well put. Hopefully no one comments with ignorance on your remark for it is the truth.

      • Cat

        Eloquently put, Troubleman!!!

    I HEAR HULK HOGAN AND RIC FLAIR ALSO WANT TO BE IN THE SQUELL……THEY ARE GOING TO BE THE VILLIANS THAT TIE UP RYAN SEACREST AND MAKE HIM SQUEEL LIKE A PIG…..HE WILL MOST DEFINATELY ENJOY THAT….

  • http://facebook john j. rodz

    YOU CAN CALL AN ACTOR THE N…WORD, BUT IF IF YOU MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT JAKE G. SEXUALLITY YOU WILL NOW BE CENSORED………..HOW ABOUT THAT??? ASK YOURSELF WHY..

    i think rock does a great job. hes made movies for kids and the action guy. if u dont like him dont watch him, hes doing great without you morons help.

  • you r sad

    i cant even begin to describe what an idiot BRAD is, i am not above stooping to anyone elses level when i feel they need some physical force applied to thier spine and skull i happen to like dwayne’s background and his movies i also played against him in college we played on the same side of the ball in the same position just opposing teams and i found him to be aggresive and respectful, if i knew who you were or where you were i would make you eat every racist word you said and quote dwaynes movie lines while i did it

  • rob

    two wrongs don’t make a right. it’s easy to point fingers at anyone. nonetheless, each individual if weighed in the balance proves his worth. personally i think dewayne johnson is great. we are the world, good and bad, right and wrong. everyone has this choice to choose for themselves. if you spend all your time destroying then you’ll never know what it’s like building. keep rockin’

  • Louise Lane

    I think Dwayne is extremely sexy that he should do a romantic movie. I enjoy watching him making comedies.

  • Erik Gladden

    Brad doesn’t deserve a reply. He loves the attention he’s getting for his stupidity. He was probably in prison at one time and loved it from behind from the bros. and is now ashamed of himself for enjoying it so much.

  • http://yahoo.com Phyllis Curley

    Just watched your movie tonight: it was awesome! as always!!!!

  • Mylene

    Wow just read the comments on this subject and respect all thoughts. But Brad dear child, no one would know how small your penis truly is if you keep your mouth shut.
