Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Jokes Larry David is ‘F—ing Crazy’

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, known for his varied talents, co-owns the United Football League. That fact didn’t escape the notice of Larry David, the star of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” David reportedly called The Rock to discuss the UFL and some desired rule changes. A spirited conversation ensued, with Johnson recounting the call during an episode of “The Tonight Show.”

The Rock on The Phone Call with Larry David

Johnson reenacted the phone call between himself and Larry David on “The Tonight Show.” He got into character and summarized the actor’s part of the conversation: “Y-You’re going to launch the new league, right? … What can we do about the kickers? Do we need the kickers?”

Despite his acting prowess, Johnson admitted his Larry David impression wasn’t his best. The Rock confirmed that while the rules of the UFL did undergo slight modifications, kickers are, in fact, essential to the game. He expressed his view stating, “We need the kickers, by the way, because kickers are an amazing component of football.”

Interestingly, this call from Larry David did not bother Johnson, who found the conversation amusing and noteworthy.
