Something is cooking over on Hollywood Boulevard, and its the Rock’s very own star on the Walk of Fame. The wrestler turned A-list actor will be receiving his very own star on the beloved walk, cementing his legacy as an actor. Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies had this to say:

“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.”

This is a big deal for Johnson, not that he needs any vindication, but receiving a star immortalizes an actor and is one of the highest honors in Hollywood.

Starting out as a professional wrestler, Dwayne Johnson quickly rose to the top of the wrestling world and became one of the most popular wrestlers ever to step into the ring. Johnson moved onto acting and made a successful switch in genres. He has shown proficiency in both comedy and drama and displays a wide range in his acting. Johnson can next be seen in the Jumanji reboot, which so far has had great reviews.
