On his way to becoming one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors, Dwayne Johnson has also managed to maintain a reputation for being one of Hollywood’s most affable actors. How does he stay so down-to-Earth in an industry that has more than its fair share of arrogant people? When we spoke with Johnson and his Rampage star, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he told us it’s because that’s who he was before he was thrust into the spotlight.
Rampage, which also stars Malin Akerman and Naomie Harris, is playing now in theaters everywhere.
In the last year, we’ve seen Dwayne Johnson in The Fate of the Furious, Baywatch, and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. (Well, two out of three ain’t bad.) His latest movie, Rampage, is new in theaters this weekend. The sci-fi action movie features Johnson as a scientist who teams with a genetic engineer (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) to save mankind when a mutated band of apes terrorizes the world. We talked to Johnson about the movie, and he told us why he found this one so appealing.
For years, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Dwayne Johnson were just one degree of separation apart, though they’d never worked together. That changed with their new movie, Rampage, when their mutual friend finally succeeded in getting the two of them on the same set. Morgan and Johnson talked to us about how it all came together.
Rampage, which also stars Malin Akerman of Billions, opens in theaters on Thursday.
