Is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Whose Patronus Is A Silverback, Angling For A Role In The Fantastic Beasts Franchise?


We've long known that superstar actor and pro wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a Harry Potter fan. The Rock has even revealed which Hogwarts House he would be sorted to — Hufflepuff — in the event he had a chance to attend the magical academy. But when called upon by Matthew Lewis to serve as Lewis's patronus — the magical totem animals that serve to ward off dementors and were also used by the Order of the Phoenix to send secret messages — The Rock was happy to oblige, and even had a suggestion for what his own Patronus would be:

Since he's such a fan, can we expect The Rock to pop up in a future Wizarding World movie? We all know that any time an actor mentions a movie franchise on social media, it constitutes rumors that they're up for a part. And he would be great in the role; even Johnny Depp's Grindelwald wouldn't stand a chance against a well-timed Rockus Bottomus hex.

Of course, a role in that franchise could put a damper on The Great One's 2020 presidential campaign, so we'll have to take this rumor we just started with a grain of salt.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
