Characters of Color: The Rock

The-Rock-dwayne-the-rock-johnson

Do you smell what the rock is cooking?

Ok enough with the sad stuff or the soap box, time for some fun, and what better character of color that represents best of awesome fun than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Born from wrestling legacy, The Rock ‘was’ the WWF in the 90’s (next to Stone Cold Steve Austin) as his move set, mic skills, and overall charisma won over even the most smartest of MARKS. He won multiple titles, multiple times, and even invented a word that to this day is still used in WWE and the modern day lexicon. Now in a move I’ve slowly accepted over the years, he made the choice to go into the acting. He has good movies (The Mummy Returns, The Scorpion King, etc.) and a lot of stinkers too (Doom, Tooth Fairy, etc.), but it doesn’t even matter what character he plays, what movie it is, or how well it (or he) does because the man is such a likeable force that The Rock will always do well. Whether it’s Dwayne Johnson or the ‘The Rock’, it doesn’t matter what his name is, he’ll always be a character of color and the people’s champion.
