According to The Hollywood Reporter, it was comedian Nick Mundy who found himself both at the center of a bit and getting hitched on Saturday. Johnson, who is described as Mundy's childhood idol, both walked the comedian down the aisle and guided him through the process of engaging in holy matrimony with his fiancee, animator Dilara Karabas.
You can actually watch the bit play out in the video below:
As you may have guessed, this is no freak thing, and Dwayne Johnson didn't just pick a random person to help get married this past weekend. Nick Mundy first met the wrestler-cum-actor at the Miami-set press junket for Michael Bay's Pain & Gain, and wound up completely flubbing his interviews due to just being so starstruck. Bad as the interviews were, however, Johnson took a liking to the reporter, and wound up inviting him to talk for both Hercules and Furious 7. The video above is one of many "bits" that the two men have done together, another one being a video where Johnson called up individuals who had somehow wronged Mundy in the past. Basically, having The Rock as your friend is pretty damn awesome.
This is hardly the first instance we've seen of Dwayne Johnson being an all-around kick-ass human being. The guy has always come across as an incredibly gracious human being, whether he be just doing interviews promoting and upcoming film, or sharing his experience of getting a letter addressed to him from none other than Steven Spielberg.
Grinnin' now like a big ass kid... When I was 8yrs old I sat front row to see a sold out INDIANA JONES in its opening weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina. I walked out of that theater excited and wanted to be "Indy".. cool, funny, charming with the ladies and kickin' ass w/ a smile. But at 8yrs old I was also perfectly content playing w/ my Star Wars figures and sneaking off listening to Richard Pryor concerts. Throughout the years I've credited this man and his movies as being my greatest inspiration in becoming an actor and wanting to always make "his kind" of movies - entertaining, quality and above all else.. heart. Just receiving this personal letter from him and its not only made me incredibly humbled and grateful, but it's also brought me back to being that 8yr old boy again who not only loves movies, but I now get to make the movies I love and enjoy the impact they have on others. THANK YOU STEVEN SPIELBERG for these inspiring and motivating words in your letter and cheers to making sure I'm always listening to that little voice in my gut. #CoolestGiftEver #BigAss8yrOldKid #SpielbergInspired
I'm sure many of you out there wish that Dwayne Johnson would come to your neighborhood and officiate your wedding, but that's probably not going to happen. Instead, you can just spend time with the superstar by seeing his new movie, San Andreas, in theaters next week.
