Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, a dude who can apparently do just about anything, is doubling down on his fledgling music career. Fresh off his hella successful Lin-Manuel Miranda collab Moana, Johnson is set to premiere his holiday variety special Rock the Troops on Spike TV. In a fresh Entertainment Weekly-premiered clip from the Armed Services tribute, Johnson fully commits by rocking a decidedly Elvis Presley-esque 'fit for a cover of the 1957 classic "Jailhouse Rock."
"My respect for our troops is boundless," Johnson said when announcing the special earlier this year. "This December we will honor the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and given that I have military in my family, vets, and Navy SEALs, the goal was to create an event that honors our troops and their families in epic fashion. Seven Bucks Productions and I are privileged to have this opportunity to salute America’s finest and thank them from the bottom of our hearts for all their dedication, bravery, sacrifice and loyalty to our country."
Rock the Troops boasts special performances from Flo Rida, Nick Jonas, and the great Tenacious D. Though they're sadly not expected to sing Elvis covers of their own, Johnson's special will also see appearances from Keegan-Michael Key, J.B. Smoove, Rob Riggle, Terry Crews, George Clooney, and his Jumanji costars Kevin Hart and Jack Black. "We are honored to dedicate a night of entertainment to these amazing men and women," Dany Garcia, Seven Bucks Productions co-founder, added.
