Johnson

Actor

The former wrestler who started out with $7 to his name (hence Seven Bucks Productions, which he co-heads with his ex and longtime manager Dany Garcia) has worked tirelessly to become a multi-platform powerhouse. In 2018, Johnson juggled his HBO series “Ballers” and films including the remake of “Jumanji,” which reeled in nearly a billion dollars, plus “Rampage” and “Skyscraper,” both overseas smashes that cemented his global appeal. On deck for 2019 is Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” his own “Fast & Furious” spinoff and the “Jumanji” sequel, while 2020 will bring his superhero flick “Black Adam.” Offscreen, Johnson opened his own advertising agency this year, Seven Bucks Creative. And of course, he told Variety he would “100 percent consider” running for president.
