A blast crafting and creating this dude… The inspiration behind this character "Bob" has always been Tom Hanks in "BIG" with an added twist. He's a grown man who's extremely childlike and views the world thru exuberant and enthusiastic teenage eyes… Loves to wear his favorite Public Enemy shirt, cargo pants and sneakers to work.. and rocks a fanny pack which holds his Bruce Lee quotes and a condom (he's always prepared). The "added twist" is Bob has an extremely high IQ and is one of the most lethal men on the planet as a C.I.A. contract killer. Oh the most important character trait.. He hates bullies. Can't wait for y'all to meet "Bob". #FightThePower #BeWaterMyFriend #FannyPackYetDeadly CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE. SUMMER 2016.
How could you not laugh after reading Dwayne Johnson‘s caption/description for his Bob character above? If you haven’t followed the guy on social media, then you should. He’ll brighten you day.
The image above serves as the first for next year’s action/comedy Central Intelligence. The film also stars Kevin Hart as an accountant who is contacted by a former classmate (Bob) prior to their upcoming class reunion. The two join forces to destroy plans of selling military secrets.
According to reports, Johnson’s character Bob was an often target of high school bullying. I’m looking forward to seeing Johnson have fun with a character with that past. The combination of him and Kevin Hart make this film a potential monster at the box office. For me, it doesn’t take much for this film to sell me on. I’m already excited.
