Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson might have won our hearts as a wrestler, but he clung onto them with the tenacity of a feral cat on a salmon when he broke into the movie scene and strutted his stuff as an actor.
But, "How many movies has The Rock been in?" I hear you cry. The grand total so far is 30 although there are plenty of movies with The Rock upcoming in 2016 including Disney's Moana and the Kevin Hart fronted action comedyCentral Intelligence.

Whether you decide to tune into The Rock's turn as a businessman turned Mexican drug trade insider in 2013's white-knuckle Snitch or 2015's disaster blockbuster San Andreas, there is something from this bombastic actor's repertoire to please everyone.

Other Notable Stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Courtney Gains and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Best Dwayne Johnson Moments: Probably when "Driver" is so hellbent to kill that he murders someone during emergency surgery after his first attempt failed. Dark.

Best Dwayne Johnson Moments: The fact that Pain & Gain was voted as the third worst film of the year on the Village Voice Film Poll's Worst Film list, but Dwayne Johnson placed 10th for Best Supporting Actor is a testament to the quality of his performance.
9. Get Smart (2008) - 51%
Who Does The Rock Play? Dwayne Johnson plays Agent 23, a field agent who also happens to be Steve Carell's character's (Maxwell "Max" Smart) idol. Maybe Smart's hero worship was misplaced though because later events reveal that 23 isn't all that he seems.

Best Dwayne Johnson Moments: The best thing about this movie is simply seeing the physique The Rock worked so hard for in action. Every fight scene is an incredible display of his dedication and the star himself has said:
"I trained and worked harder than ever for 8 months for this role. Lived alone and locked myself away (like a moody 260lb. monk) in Budapest for 6 months while filming. Goal was to completely transform into this character. Disappear in the role. Press journalist asked me today, with the mental and physical toll the role had on me, would I do it again? Not only would I do it again...I'd do it twice
