Johnson is a perfect specimen. I see the guy on his facebook page and man he is diesel as hell can be any freaking body he wants looking like that.

i like dwane, he has charasma and stage presence however i dont know if the planned movie will be a critical success. clash of the titans and wrath of the titans did not get good reviews from the critics and audience alike and dwayne johnson's early projects were mummy and scorpion king wherein he is playing a character slightly the same as hercules in some perspective. the whole thing is predictable and imaginable.
