SHAQ WANTS TO BE THE NEXT ROCK!June 29, 2018
“I want to be as big as Rock. We come from the same place: athletes that transition. That’s my goal. I want similar-type movies. I want to get thrillers. I want to get dramas. I want to do comedies. I want to be the next Rock. I want to do a thriller where I’m like a hero and beat up all the bad guys.”
Shaq is currently on track to follow The Rock’s success considering he’s already been in 15 movies. However, we can’t help but love Shaq’s friends for keeping him humble.
“I always tell my friends I shot 15 movies but they say, ‘Yeah, but if you play Shaq in nine of the movies, that’s not really acting.’ I say, ‘You make a good point.’ I’m just happy to have the opportunity.”
While Uncle Drew is about rounding up an old basketball crew, Shaq plays Big Fella – a meditating karate instructor – so needless to say, Shaq is working on his acting chops!
