Dwayne Douglas Johnson also known by his ring name The Rock was born on the 2nd of May 1972. He is a Canadian-American actor, producer, and semi-retired professional wrestler, currently signed to WWE. Johnson's first leading film role was in The Scorpion King in 2002. For this role, he was paid US $5.5 million, a world record for an actor in his first starring role.
