The Rock To Receive Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

The Rock To Receive Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Actor, producer and former WWE wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on December 13.

Variety reported Johnson will receive his star in a ceremony December 13 for his global box office success and for using that success to help others.

"Everyone loves Dwayne Johnson!". We predict that his star will be a very popular one to visit on our famous walk. This past year he starred in Bay Watch, The Fate of the Furious, and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle alongside Kevin Hart.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed. Johnson responded by tweeting a heartfelt and grateful message, and then he (jokingly?) added that he'd be providing tequila. His other credits include Central Intelligence, the Fast and the Furious film franchise and Moana. Johnson moved onto acting and made a successful switch in genres. His role was so well received by Universal's executives that they immediately planned a film based on his character, "The Scorpion King", which broke box office records in 2002.

Besides the flicks, the Rock also stars in HBO's Ballers, which is produced by his own Seven Bucks Productions.

This is a big deal for Johnson, not that he needs any vindication, but receiving a star immortalizes an actor and is one of the highest honors in Hollywood.

Taking to Twitter, Johnson said of the news: "A true true honor".
