The Rock Is a Badass New Hercules [VIDEO]
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been teasing us about his new “Hercules” movie for a while, and this week we finally got to take a look at it. Unlike the more recent “Hercules 3D”, this movie doesn’t look like a lame joke.
Most ’90s kids like myself think of one guy when it comes to the Hercules character, and that’s Kevin Sorbo. “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” from the ’90s was great, but looking back it was kind of horrible.
Before that they had a couple other people take a crack at Hercules including bodybuilders Lou Ferrigno and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Unfortunately while those guys were huge (unlike Sorbo) they lacked the acting chops.
So that brings us to The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) who has really come to prove that he is not only a badass action hero, but a pretty good actor too. Hopefully he’s able to do this character some justice.
The film is set to hit theaters this July.
