Congratulations are in order for EBONY Power 100 cover star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as the athlete-turned-actor will soon be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
The Dec. 13 ceremony will honor Johnson in the motion pictures category for his status as a global box-office powerhouse, according to Variety. Producer of Walk of Fame ceremonies Ana Martinez had this to say about the superstar:
“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.”
The former wrestler will soon be seen alongside funnymen Kevin Hart and Jack Black in Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which hits theaters Dec. 20.
