Back in January, it was announced that Dwayne Johnson would be working with NBC on an autobiographical series based on his younger years called Young Rock. The first season will be 11 episodes and will show his childhood, time in Hawaii, playing football for Miami University, and pre-WWE wrestling.

Playing Johnson at the age of 10 is Adrian Groulx (The Adventures of Napkin Man!), age 15 is Bradley Constant (Following Phil), and for ages 18-20 Uli Latukefu (Alien: Covenant). Portraying his mother is Stacey Leilua (Tatau), his late father will be played by Joseph Lee Anderson (Smoke Break), and his grandmother will be played by Ana Tuisila (Liliu). Johnson took to his Instagram account to post the image announcements.
