Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart are arguably the biggest actors in their genres. Johnson has been in countless action movies, and Hart is the leader when it comes to funny films. It was only a matter of time till the two got together for a movie.
‘Central Intelligence’ follows two men that knew each other in high school. Bob Stone (Johnson) was alway made fun of and even used to be known as Robbie Weirdick, who you can imagine the high school jokes based off of name alone. Calvin Joyner (Hart) was the cool guy in high school, a jock, popular, the works. When little Bob got humiliated, Joyner was the only one to help him out.
Later in life, Calvin is an accountant whose life hasn’t turned out as awesome as it was in high school. Stone’s life, however, has changed dramatically. In this interview, Rock and Hart discuss how their characters ended up, as well as why the duo are so different than every other buddy cop film, and Aaron Paul talks about how different the two actors are.
