According to Variety.com, WWE star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be starring in a new reality series called “The Hero,” a show looking to discover the new action hero. The following is an article excerpt:
Dwayne Johnson has found his next action role: on TV.
The actor and his producing partner Dany Garcia have paired up with Ben Silverman’s Electus Entertainment on “The Hero,” a competition show that heavily integrates social media to discover the next great hero.
In the series, three teams of ordinary people are sent on a high-stakes global adventure across three continents to prove what they are able to overcome, sacrifice and undergo for the strength of their groups.
Johnson, who will next be seen in Paramount’s “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” won’t host the show. Instead, he’ll appear in various incarnations during episodes to push the contestants beyond their personal limits and prove that a true hero is defined by far more than just physical strength and power.
