Friday Hot Guy Blogging: The Rock

Although we've always known that Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) is extraordinary eye candy, he is much more than your average gorgeous ex-wrestler. A direct descendant of royal lineage in Hawai'i and Samoan native cultures, The Rock grew up in Pennsylvania and played college football before perfecting the arched eyebrow of his WWE alter-ego. (The tattoos came later.)

When he moved into a film career, I'll admit to drooling over his oiled-up pecs in The Scorpion King. But in films like The Rundown and especially the underrated remake of Walking Tall, The Rock has shown rather impressive acting chops for an action star (he has no less than five films in production for 2006-07). As he showed in Be Cool, he's very comfortable with playing gay. He would more believable in gay roles, however, if he came over to my house and played a few rounds of Banana Swordfight. It certainly helped Heath Ledger, now didn't it?
