Meet the macho man behind The Rock's stunts -- who is also his cousin

7 September 2015 / 1 year 1 month ago

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson's movie stunts are certainly very impressive -- and he has one person to thank for.

According to Elite Daily, he has been doing stunts for The Rock since his acting debut in “The Scorpion King” back in 2002.

Tanoai Reed might just be one of the best stuntsman in the game. And he is also The Rock's cousin.

Built exactly and even looking a little similar to The Rock, he can easily pass off as his cousin. 

They have been working together on all of the "Fast and Furious" movies. For the role of Hercules, Tanoai had to reach his peak physical condition to keep up with The Rock.

Reed is also Kevin Hart’s stuntman for the upcoming film “Central Intelligence.

Dwayne himself also raved about his cousin in a Facebook post

"Samoan double trouble... Hollywood stuntmen and women are often unrecognized, yet so deserving.

"Putting their bodies on the line in extremely dangerous stunts so the movie star can look incredible on the silver screen.

"He's shattered bones, sliced tendons, f*cked up his shoulders and back and countless surgeries - my stunt double Tanoai Reed has always been willing to put it all on the line to make our movies phenomenal and deliver the best quality action for you - our global fans."
