Tired of watching Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson suck it up in one boring family comedy after another? Did you, like me, finally write him off following the atrocity that was The Tooth Fairy? Are you still kind of itching to see this former wrestler get back to using those giant muscles to beat up bad guys instead of lift children's spirits? Well guess what – The Rock is back, baby!
USA Today has premiered the first image from Johnson's next film, Faster, where he'll play an ex-con who's out to avenge his brother's murder. And if you're not convinced at how badass this film is gonna be based on that image of a ripped Dwayne Johnson, then know that the man also gets shot in the head at some point during the film. Billy Bob Thornton and Carla Gugino also star as a couple of cops trying to stop Johnson before he knocks off too many people.
Says Thornton, "Some movies you do for money, some movies you do because they mean something to you personally. And some movies, like this one, you do for fun. Who doesn't want to be chasing and shooting at The Rock?" Um, well, when he looks like that, I think I'd rather watch him being chased from the comfort of my own home.
What say you? Do you like The Rock better when he's in action films or family comedies?
