The 45-year-old actor, best known for his character Hobbs in the "Fast and Furious" film franchise, first made his name as a WWE wrestler and introduced his moniker "The Rock". The Rock made his acting debut by starring in "The Mummy Returns" (2001) before landing his first starring role in "The Scorpion King" the year after.
This year alone, Johnson stars in three movies that include "Baywatch", "The Fate of the Furious" and highly-anticipated "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle", which is slated to hit U.S. theaters on December 20. The sequel of 1995's "Jumanji" sees Johnson starring opposite Kevin Hart, Nick Jonas, Jack Black and Bobby Cannavale.
The "Moana" voice actor was named the world's highest earning actor of 2016 and nabbed the second place this year. According to Forbes, the actor netted $65 million while his movies have grossed nearly $3 billion at the box office.
Johnson can next be seen in upcoming flicks "Rampage" and "Skyscraper" which will arrive in 2018. His next project also includes a "Fast and Furious" spin-off movie based on his breakout character Hobbs. The spin-off is slated to premiere sometime in 2019.
The ceremony will kick off at 11:30 P.M. at 6801 Hollywood Blvd., in front of the Hollywood and Highland complex.
