- As noted, WWE recently profiled former WWE star Vladimir Kozlov for their "Where Are They Now?" feature. It was noted that Kozlov has a role in The Rock's upcoming movie, Fast 8. You can check out Kozlov training for the movie in the video above.
- Yahoo Movies! has a story here about Disney pulling a costume based on The Rock's character Maui in the upcoming Disney film, Moana. The costume offended some Pacific Islanders, who compared it to blackface. Marama Fox, a co-leader of New Zealand's indigenous Maori Party and a member of New Zealand's parliament, said that she feels that the movie itself is playing to stereotypes.
"It depicts Maui as a bit of a beefy guy, and not in a good way. That's not the picture I have of the Maui who fished up the North Island, and had a number of feats attributed to him," she said.
You can check out the costume below.
