Johnson

Co-Founder

It’s hard to believe the WWE star transitioned from wrestling to Hollywood two de­cades ago. Johnson — better known as “The Rock” — is the highest-­paid actor in showbiz, with a consistently massive social media presence. He produces all of his projects through his and business partner Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Prods., including Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” the animated “DC League of Super-Pets,” Netflix’s “Red Notice” and NBC’s “Young Rock.” This year saw him put on a superhero costume to become “Black Adam,” transforming his movie career in the process as an integral player in the DC Universe. Although Johnson has said he’s ruling out a run for president, he will become a football-league owner when the XFL kicks off in early 2023. He’s also busy as an entrepreneur, with interests ranging from his Teremana tequila and his ZOA Energy drinks to his Project Rock clothing line with Under Armour.
