The Rock tackles gang of thieves! Yeah!

September 3rd, 2012 by Marc Comments


Come on! You knew it, we knew it… Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson IS officially a legend.

The Rock apparently foiled an attempted burglary in Hackney, London, where he is filming for Fast And Furious 6. The story is that he spotted a group of of wannabe thieves trying to break into some vans and The Rock, who was in FBI attire for filming at the time, leapt to action – even though he was in the middle of filming a fight scene at the time.

A witness told The Sun newspaper: “It was so funny. The Rock looked like an action hero because he had his flak jacket on and an FBI badge in his hand.”

“All of a sudden, there was loads of gunfire and this giant dressed as a copper was about to mow them down. The lads jumped out of their skin and scarpered (look at him (above), wouldn’t you?! -ed) down the canal path and left the crew in peace.”

Mr Rock, sir, we at FTN salute you…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
