His commitment has apparently led him to black out while being chained to the floor during a very intense scene.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is the epitome of method acting (potentially rivaling Leonardo DiCaprio's stunt in "Django Unchained").
Dwayne Johnson posted the scene on his Instagram page before saying, "I asked the prop department to lock me in with real steel chains that I couldn't break, so the performance would be real. … We shot this scene 8 times - I blacked out every time. Down to my knees. Well worth the fun pain.. this moment is iconic. I’m excited for you to see it..."
That must be one insane scene!
Or he's just yanking our chains (no pun intended).
Johnson has been credited with several poor films early in his acting career, but he has finally started choosing his films wisely and is now garnering quite a bit of fame. After joining the "Fast and Furious" franchise, Johnson has gotten back into the positive light of action films and is now set to star as the legendary Greek hero Hercules.
However, this film could either make or break his career. He's invested so much of his talent in this movie, and if it flops it will haunt his career for the rest of his life.
"Hercules" opens in cinemas on July 25 and stars Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, and Rebecca Ferguson.
