As you may be aware, The Rock has ANOTHER project in the works, a TV show for HBO called Ballers. How he finds time to shoot 43 movies, a couple of reality shows and a TV show all at the same time is beyond me. I guess it’s because he’s The Rock.
Anyway, Ballers is going to be a show “centered around a group of football players and their families, friends, and handlers.” (Thanks, IMDB.) The Rock, aka Dwayne Johnson, is one of the executive producers alongside Mark Wahlberg. He also plays the lead role of Spencer Strasmore, a retired football player, who according to a new photo played for the Miami Dolphins.
“‘I meant to hurt you that day. Nothin’ dirty… just to punish. It’s how I played the game – relentless and punishing.’ ~ #92 Spencer Strasmore #Flashbacks #OfAFutureHallOfFamer,” The Rock captioned the photo of himself as a Dolphin.
Ballers is set to premiere on HBO this coming June.
Here are some more cool pictures The Rock has shared from the set over the past month or so.
