Sometimes when we think no one is watching or paying attention, our actions continue to impact others. That fact is true even in Hollywood when actors watch the work of their colleagues. Such is the case between Idris Elba and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The Rock, who stars in the week’s number one movie, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, has a fan in Elba. “I admire Dwayne The Rock Johnson and his fearlessness in taking roles in kids movies even though he’s known for being a hard man. That shows versatility.”
You’ve got to give The Rock credit, as Elba stated, he’s slowly built his career with his share of action films but has also appeared in films in roles against types. Movies like Tooth Fairy and The Game Plan, have broaden his appeal among children. He has also showed his vulnerability in tender stories such as Gridiron Gang, while displaying a wicked sense of humor in films such as Be Cool.
With several more movies coming up this year, The Rock will continue down his path, as Elba states, fearlessly showing his versatility . . . while continuing to entertain us!
