James Harrison of the Steelers believes that one small role in a TV show will make him a huge action star, and he’s coming for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s crown.
According to ESPN, the Super Bowl winner and sack leader got a small role on the CBS show, S.W.A.T., and told the outlet that he feels this qualifies him to come for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his career.
He, in fact, feels his career is along the lines of a much more legendary actor’s career trajectory.
“I would say I’m not actually skilled in it as far as a student of it. What I bring is raw. I’m trying to get that refined. Emotional responses, that’s the hard thing. Being able to be, like, extremely compassionate. Actors like Denzel [Washington] being able to go that whole spectrum. I think that’s what I’ll have to get a lot of help on refining.”
James Harrison also believes that The Rock needs to “watch out,” because he has designs on being an action star, and he’s coming for him. Yet, he of all people also realizes that he knows work has to be put in.
“What a lot of people don’t realize about The Rock is he did other things over the course of 10-15 years before he really blew up. He put in the work.”
It sounds like James Harrison has a good idea of where he wants to go, especially since he’s been rumored to be looking into career options lately.
