Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is everyone's favorite advisor in the new Ballers trailer

Posted on

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson: Earthquake fighter, arm cast crusher, and now, professional football’s greatest financial advisor.

That newest title might not have the action movie flair of Johnson’s other recent roles, but the Furious 7 and San Andreas star continues to layer on the charm in the latest trailer for his HBO show Ballers. This new glimpse at the show is less about the story of Johnson’s Spencer Strassmore and more about the luxurious—and sometimes problematic—lives of his clients, and the work he has to do to protect them on and off the field.

While Johnson’s smile (and imposing figure) may dominate the trailer, look out for brief glimpses of Rob Coddry and Richard Schiff among the show’s many co-stars.

Ballers is set to premiere on HBO June 21, alongside The Brink and the second season of True Detective.
