Dwayne Johnson Retires 'The Rock'

Dwayne Johnson, formerly known as The Rock, is re-positioning himself as Hollywood’s go-to family comedy hitman, a reinvention that started by no longer calling himself The Rock.

“I’m aware of everything that comes with that nickname, and I just think there’s a lot more you can do without it,” he says. ”But I wanted it to happen naturally, from ‘The Rock’ to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to ‘Dwayne Johnson,” he told EW.

On June 20, Dwayne will be seen opposite Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway as Agent 23 in Get Smart.

Right now Dwayne is in Las Vegas filming his next movie, Race to Witch Mountain, in which he’ll play a cabdriver being taken for a ride by two paranormal teens.
