No. 23: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — Top Action Movie Stars
"The Rock" is one of the most likeable entertainers working today. He is a wrestling super mega star, easily ranking amongst the greatest pro-wrestling personalities to ever slam a body. But not a single one of his wrestling co-stars have ever made such a successful leap into action cinema.
Sure, there have been wrestlers with hits here and there, but The Rock has toiled in cinema for a good 10 years now and few would suggest that he is going anywhere but up. ‘The Rundown’ and ‘Faster’ are lesser gems, and the less said about his family films, the better. But his entrance to the 'Fast & Furious' series was meteoric, and my guess is that he will breathe tons of charisma into the ‘GI Joe’ sequel as well. Yes, we’ll be seeing a lot more of The Rock, and his ranking here is sure to rise.
