As The Rock he became an icon in the world of professional wrestling, and after many years of hard work, Dwayne Johnson eventually became the highest paid actor in the world. He’s starred in numerous high budget Hollywood blockbusters that scored big at the box office, and now The Rock is set to receive his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Next week The Rock will be honored with the 2,624th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of Motion Pictures at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard in front Hollywood & Highland Complex.
Fans who can’t attend the ceremony will be able to live stream the event at walkoffame.com on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. PST.
“Everyone loves Dwayne Johnson! We predict that his star will be a very popular one to visit on our famous walk. Not only does Dwayne have a great personality and talent, but he also does a great amount of philanthropic work which is part of the criteria for earning an immortal spot on the Walk of Fame. We envision scores of photos being taken at his star by his fans,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.
The Rock took a big risk when he left WWE for Hollywood, but obviously that risk has paid off as he’s become one of the most beloved actors of the modern era.
Congratulations to The Rock.
