Dwayne Johnson To Star In Ballers

It is being said that Dwayne Johnson may be adding a TV series to his resume as the creators of the HBO drama series Ballers have decided to sign him on their show.

Ballers stars Mark Wahlberg (no stranger to working with the channel after Entourage) and Steve Levinson. Peter Berg, who just directed Wahlberg in Lone Survivor, handled the megaphone chores for the pilot.

So basically, the show is based on a group of former and current American football players and shows Johnson playing a retired athlete, with other characters boasting a highly spiritual pro athlete, financial adviser, sports agent, ESPN sideline reporter and ex-wife of a pro football player.
However, this is not his first TV show he has already started a reality show The Hero for US network TNT and has been planning on a new one called Wake Up Call. Coming to the big screen, he has Hercules set to arrive on August 8, with Fast & Furious 7 put back to 2015 and disaster adventure San Andreas set to shoot this year.
