There was a time that Dwayne Johnson became labelled as “franchise viagra”, for a couple of years there it seemed like the idea of adding this actor to your franchise would super-charged your returns, and made your movie series even bigger. It worked out for Fast and Furious, but maybe not so much for G.I. Joe and Journey 2. Regardless, Johnson remains one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood, and his busy film schedule is keeping him in demand from now till at least 2020. So on the one hand, the below video is utterly unbelievable because we know Johnson isn’t actively looking for work, but on the other hand…
In the comedic video from GQ, Johnson meets with his agent who’s played by Tituss Burgess from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Obviously, the agent’s got a stack of scripts all eager for his client’s participation including sequels to Goodfellas, Home Alone, and Napoleon Dynamite, which gives Johnson the chance to show off his considerable comedic chops by replaying memorable scenes from those movies. Again, it’s not completely believable that Johnson would have to stoop so low as to play an adult Kevin McCallister, if you look at his IMDb page he’s got 13 future projects in various stages of development, but for a short three minute video, it’s definitely worth a laugh.
Johnson will next be seen in Baywatch, which hits theatres on May 25, and he can still be seen in theatres everywhere as part of the ensemble cast of The Fate of the Furious.
