The Rock is getting another show, but this time it is literally about him. Young Rock was quickly green lit by NBC and the series is coming to television soon. Now the cast is ready and Dwayne Johnson shared who will play himself and his legendary family.
Three actors will play The Rock. They cast different actors to play Johnson at ages 10, 15, and 20. Those parts will be played by Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant, and Uli Latukefu respectively.
The Great One took the time to send out a post for each member of the main cast of the show. Young Rock could also be a show with a lot of pro wrestling history wrapped throughout. The Rock is a third-generation Superstar, and now his daughter Simone Johnson is following in her family’s footsteps.
Young Rock is slated for an 11-episode first season as of right now. NBC could always order more. The show will film in Australia and it is slated to debut on NBC in January 2021.
