The Rock opens up on James Bond
With his blockbuster film “Black Adam,” Dwayne Johnson may be starting a new franchise. He only has a one-degree-of-separation connection to the longest-running current franchise in film history. Johnson mentioned a connection to the James Bond series in an interview with LADbible TV to promote his new movie.
“You know, my grandfather was in ‘You Only Live Twice’. He was he was a bad guy in ‘You Only Live Twice.’ He had this amazing fighting with Sean Connery.”
High Chief Peter Maivia was the driver of the evil Osato in the movie. The Rock’s grandpa was repeatedly struck with a sofa before he was killed when a statue crushed his head. Maivia’s sole appearance in a major motion picture was in “You Only Live Twice,” and he also served as an uncredited stunt coordinator for the film. Johnson laughed when he was asked if he would think about taking on the role of a Bond villain in a future 007 saga.
