You know, really kind of checking your ego at the door. As guys, we have a tendency to not ask for help. Ego gets in the way, and we start stuffing things deep down in our guts, which is not a good thing. I’ve become an advocate for asking for help.”

Was there a movie role I really wanted, but lost to another actor? Yup. The role was Jack Reacher. The actor was Tom Cruise. Business is business and I’m happy he got it. Universe works in funny ways though, as when that door shut on me, another door opened with the opportunity to create a character from scratch that was of my DNA. The one and only bad ass, shit talkin’, gravity and reality defying, always winkin’ and having fun OUTLAW LAWMAN KNOWN AS LUKE HOBBS. Let the good times roll 🤠🥃 Thanks for all your great questions and enjoy your holiday weekend. Most importantly, stay healthy my friends. D
“Fortunately, for me, there aren’t a lot of guys at all who look like me. So, all of my roles, from the beginning of my career, I’ve been a lucky son of a b***h that they’ve been created and designed for me – except Jack Reacher.”
The movie is based on Lee Child which came in 2012 and helmed by Christopher McQuarrie. But he joined back with the sequel “Never Look Back” in 2016.
Adding to this he told his fans that he “was in a much different place 10 years ago”, was “made [to] think” and though he had the opportunity to grab the character as he was of the same height and build the role.”
Apart from this Dwayne Johnson was considered one of the successful box office stars when he portrayed Hobbs in Fast & Furious 5. And in 2019 he starred along with Jason Statham in Spin-off Hobbs &Shaw.
He continued saying: “I’m positive that the role of Jack Reacher, because it was an established character, an IP that was well known and beloved around the world, that I wouldn’t have had the creative space to do what I wanted with the character.” “I look back in gratitude that I didn’t get Jack Reacher.”
