Thanks to their successful collaboration in the 2016 flick Central Intelligence, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart were more than happy to reunite with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Johnson plays adventurer Dr. Smolder Bravestone in the flick, and Hart’s role also has a memorable moniker (he plays zoologist Moose Finbar).
When asked about his favorite moment in the film, Johnson joked about one of his many sequences with Hart. “There’s a scene where Kevin and I have a little bit of a disagreement and I have to put him in his place,” said Johnson. “I put him in his place physically and I give him a little push and because it’s Smolder Bravestone he has super powers and Kevin goes 30 feet crashing into a wall. That’s my favorite. Any time I can see pain on Kevin’s face, I’m happy.”
