PHILADELPHIA – Dwayne Johnson’s latest movie just topped US$300 million in worldwide grosses. He’s laid the smack down on Hollywood and become an in-demand action star for hire. But the next time someone barks, “Action!” Johnson will slip back into his most famous role yet: The trash-talking, trail-blazing, jabroni-beating wrestler known simply as The Rock. Think an established superstar actor like Brad Pitt would risk getting his teeth knocked out for a run in sports entertainment?
