Former wrestler turned actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will take a break from starring in family films to get back to the action.
Johnson will be playing the character of Roadblock who was best known in the 1980s animated series for speaking in rhymes.
“The Rock” has been tweeting to his fans about training for the role on a farm: “96 degrees. Just heard the horses say ‘what the f*** is wrong w you. Get inside.'”
Bruce Willis is also being considered for the role of original “Joe,” Joe Colton, in the sequel, according to Deadline.
Not everyone will be returning from the original film.
Marlon Wayans will not be appearing in the highly anticipated sequel. Even Joseph Gordon – Levitt , who played Cobra Commander in the first film, said he will not be returning.
