Even Dwayne Johnson Doesn’t Want to Watch This Clip From ‘Hercules’
You know the drill by now: a big star hits up a late night talk show to chat, laugh, maybe play a game, plug their latest project, and show a clip. It’s a standard way to do things, but you know who doesn’t care about standard ways of doing things? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. And, really, who are we to argue with him?
Johnson was on hand last night to talk about this week’s new release — the Brett Ratner-directed ‘Hercules,’ one that sees the actor playing the famous half-man/half-god with more muscles than you can shake a club at — with ‘Conan‘ host Conan O’Brien. Johnson came equipped with a fun story about how filming the feature almost killed him (fine, he just blacked out, but can you even imagine Dwayne Johnson blacking out?), and the pair (plus Andy Richter) had such a good time laughing about it that when it came time to derail their merriment for official clip-showing, Johnson wasn’t having any of it. Seriously, he really doesn’t want to watch this clip.
