He’s been the Scorpion King. He’s been G.I. Joe. He’s even been Obama (or at least “The Rock Obama,” if you make the president mad) on Saturday Night Live. Now, thanks to a win in court, actor and former wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can add the role of journalist to his rundown.
In 2017, Johnson executive produced and starred in “Rock and a Hard Place,” an HBO documentary about the Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation Boot Camp, which gives incarcerated juveniles the chance to trade a long prison sentence for completing the intense six-month program. At the time of filming, Christy Laster was a corrections offer at the program. She was later charged with bribery, extortion and grand theft. Laster believed outtakes from the documentary would exonerate her, and she subpoenaed HBO to get the footage.
