The Rock Turned Down TRANSFORMERS 4 Role

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson himself has recently admitted that he’s “franchise lifesaver”, the main ‘ingredient’ to add to a series that seems to have lost its way. Naturally, we assumed he was right there with us in being confused when it was his Pain & Gain co-star Mark Wahlberg brought in to lead Michael Bay‘s Transformers 4 instead of The Rock. Don’t misunderstand me – Wahlberg’s great and all, but why wouldn’t Bay at least try to get them both? As it turns out, The Rock was one step ahead of us this whole time. Here’s what he tweeted today as part of his RockTalk:       Now whether or not it’s a better idea for The Rock to venture out on the Brett Ratner-directed Hercules: The Thracian Wars is up for debate – after all, playing Conan the Barbarian unfortunately didn’t work out so well for Jason Momoa, so taking on characters once played by Arnold Schwarzenegger has a tricky track record. But then again, The Rock is in a category entirely of his own at this point, capable of jumping from Wrestlemania to kids’ movies to R-rated comedy The Other Guys to bonkers violence like Pain & Gain and only getting more and more popular. It’s not really so much The Rock’s loss that he doesn’t get to be in Transformers 4 – he’ll be perfectly fine. But now that we know he should have been it, the movie will inevitably seem worse without him, don’t you think? Transformers poster
