Mouse laffer on hold until Rock mends
Disney has postponed the start of its gridiron comedy “The Game Plan,” after Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson ruptured his Achilles tendon rehearsing for his role as a pro quarterback.
Johnson will undergo surgery Friday in Miami, and the film is postponed until he heals. He’s no stranger to the football field, having played on a Miami Hurricanes team that won the National Championship, and done a brief stint in the Canadian Football League before he turned to pro wrestling.
“My injury, while serious, is unfortunately common with this type of activity. I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support that I have received from Disney and all those involved with this film,” Johnson said in a statement.
