Dwayne Johnson may be a bona fide movie star, but he’s still no Arnold.
The Baywatch and Jumanji star posted a video to Instagram from rehearsals on the set of Rampage, in which he tries to channel Arnold Schwarzenegger — and, by his own admission, it doesn’t go very well.
“Enjoy me completely butchering my best [Schwarzenegger] impression while on the set of #Rampage,” Johnson captioned the footage.
He then went on to praise the action star, who he admired growing up and said was “so supportive” when he first broke into showbiz.
“When I was a kid Arnold was one of my heroes. And when I first started in Hollywood, he was one of the biggest stars on the planet and was so supportive and welcoming to me, when he didn’t have to be,” Johnson explained. “First time we had dinner he said, ‘You can take the brass ring to places it’s never been before’ in his iconic accent which clearly I suck at. 15 long hard working years later, here I am. Grateful. This one’s for you brother.”
Johnson has shared other snapshots from the Rampage set in recent weeks, including one of him with costars Naomie Harris and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The film, based on the 1980s arcade game of the same name, is directed by Brad Peyton (San Andreas) and is slated to hits theaters on April 20, 2018.
