The TV series “Young Rock” is about the life of Dwayne “Rock” Johnson. Even before the celebrity, he lived like any other child: he experienced parental anger, made many mistakes and tried to succeed. Only having found his way to success, he became who he is — a great wrestler, a good actor and an exemplary father for his daughters.
“Young Rock ss 3”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the TV show “Young Rock” is officially announced! This happened immediately after the end of the season 2. The exact date is also known: the premiere of new episodes will take place on November 4, 2022! Happy viewing!
Rocky Johnson was known as an undefeated wrestler, crushing opponents in the ring. Looking at his father, little Dwayne dreamed of following in his footsteps. And what kind of life awaits a child whose childhood was spent among the great wrestlers of that time? All his relatives made money on staged fights, instilling in the boy the confidence that it was cool.
Years passed, school ended, and matured Dwayne wanted to impress a classmate. He stole things from a fashion boutique, bought a car for the last $ 103, but never became the person he dreamed of becoming. On the advice of a friend, Johnson decided not to waste time on the girl and began to help his mother more.
Father was away from home more and more, he still liked to deceive people, and Dwayne needed to prove to himself that he was worth something. By training hard in the gym, the guy was able to impress his comrades. Instead of his father’s methods, where the main trick to achieve coolness was lying, Dwayne decided to go a different way.
Instead of a source of endless lies, Dwayne managed to become cool through his actions, strength and attitude to others. Taking viewers from one time period to another, the already matured Rock explains why he became the way we know him now. The new season, according to tradition, will not only plunge viewers into the past, but also tell about his present, in which Dwayne Johnson is no different from ordinary people…
Actors and their roles
- Dwayne Johnson — also known as the Rock; a black man telling stories about his development as a person; he tries to explain to others that only life circumstances could cultivate in him all the good qualities with which he is endowed. He is played by Adrian Groulx at 10, Bradley Constant at 15, and Uli Latukefu at 18. He is currently playing himself.
- Rocky Johnson — the carefree father of Dwayne, who at first earned money from wrestling, but later went to work in a factory; believed that in no case should one lose face in front of the public, and while the family lived in an old hotel, he drove around in an expensive car, did not fulfill the promises made to his son; liked to stay with friends until late — Joseph Lee Anderson.
- Ata Johnson — Rocky’s wife; strong-willed woman capable of exploits; helped her husband to maintain the image; mopping floors on the other side of the city and barely making ends meet; always justified her husband in the eyes of a small child, but she could not do it when Dwayne grew up, because it was obvious that his father did not think about the family — Stacey Leilua.
- Randall Park — plays himself; is the owner of the show in which he interviews the main character; periodically inserts playful remarks that the public likes so much; offers to tell more about the early years, playing football and relationships with peers.
- In 2019, when the castings for the TV series “Young Rock” began, the TV series “See” was released with Jason Momoa in the title role. Being a fan of fantasy, Dwayne Johnson saw a young Adrian Groulx on a TV show who was perfect for the role of young Dwayne. Skala personally invited the boy to take part in his project, but received consent only from his parents.
- The phrase about the red Cadillacs that Dwayne promised to give to his mother has a real story. Being poor, the guy promised his mother that she would not need anything. He also said that he would give her 7 Cadillacs of different colors for different days of the week. The woman joked that she loves white and would be happy with seven white cars. In 2021, the son fulfilled the promise.
- Uli Latukefu, who played 18-year-old Rock on the TV show, originally wanted to build his career as a singer. In 2004, Uli became a member of the musical show “Australian Idol” (a franchise of the world-famous show “Idol”). As time has shown, Latukefu was destined to become an actor, not a singer.
- Rocky Johnson, Dwayne’s father, was the first Black Georgia Heavyweight Champion in 1983. He also won the World Team Championship with Tony Atlas as his partner. For the first time in its history, black wrestlers have become World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) champions.
