A look at the wrestler's burgeoning blockbuster career
By Bryan Reesman
Special to MSN Movies
Dwayne Johnson is to wrestlers what Arnold Schwarzenegger is to bodybuilders: They're
both the singular athlete in their professions who crossed over into massive
mainstream success and became iconographic cinematic figures. Both Johnson and
Schwarzenegger have become famous for their high-powered action roles, despite
having done a number of successful comedies, although Johnson has expanded his
repertoire faster and in different directions. For every shoot-'em-up,
blow-'em-up action pic he does, the former wrestler also takes on either a
comedic or gritty dramatic role as a counterpoint.
