The Rock’s stuntman for the past 16 years looks like his long lost twin—with a name to match!


Legendary wrestler turned actor, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, is known for his athletic, muscular body and memorable films.

Although famous for acting in family favorites like The Toothfairy, his others fast paced and top action films like Skyscraper and The Fast and Furious series are just as good—if not better.

Last May, The Rock’s stunt double, Tanoai Reed (right), who always steps in during The Rock’s craziest stunt scenes, became the talk of the internet.

He went viral after posting a picture during The Rock’s birthday celebration with an appreciation caption that made viewers thought they were identical twins!

Reed said in his Instagram caption,

“I’d like to wish the most realist, down to earth, humble, talented (and almost as handsome as me), brother from another mother, my Uce Deuce Dwayne ‘DJ’ The Rock Johnson a very happy and blessed 45th birthday! I hope I look as good as you when I turn 45 in a year and a half. Thank you for being a great example not only to myself, but to all of the Polynesian youth, as well as every youth, woman and man from all over the world! May the good Lord bless you with many more happy years to keep inspiring and sharing your Mana with the world!”

Reed was said to have worked with The Rock, who also happens to be his cousin, for the past 16 years.

A few of the films which they’ve worked on together include ‘The Scorpion King’, ‘Central Intelligence’ and ‘Jumanji’.

At first glance, you’d never be able to tell them apart because of how similar they are in terms of body shape, body language and even in the way they smile!

If Reed went ahead and pretended to be The Rock, fans would probably still flock to him to get their pictures taken.
