It looks like all that hard work is paying off in a big way for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as his tireless pursuit of movie roles has led to him dominating Hollywood in a big way, and as was just revealed, topping the list as the highest-paid actor in the entire world. According to Forbes, The Rock earned $64.5 million for his theatrical works this year, more than double what he brought in last year, making him an “A-list” celebrity in every sense of the word. Rock edged out Jackie Chan at #2 (apparently he’s still making movies, and ridiculous money, in China), then Matt Damon, Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp at #3, #4 and #5, respectively. That’s some high-powered company for the Most Electrifying Man In Sports Entertainment.
Among other things, you can next see The Rock in the upcoming Baywatch and Fast 8 movies.
