The Rock's Stunt Double (And Cousin) Cries After Getting A Surprise Call!

posted by Carolyn McArdle - 

Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson  posted a heartwarming video on Instagram revealing that he gifted his stunt double Tanoai Reed a custom pickup truck to thank him for 17 years of work. 

Tanoai is also The Rock's cousin!

Tanoai has broken multiple bones, severed tendons and torn ligaments being The Rock's stunt double so this is a pretty good showing of gratitude! 


SURPRISE! I love handing over keys🔑🎁 I love you brother and enjoy your new truck! Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed @samoanstuntman has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several “Stuntman of the Year” honors. All done with one goal in mind - deliver the best movie possible to the world. I had this custom pick up truck delivered just in time to surprise him (he’s still recovering from a stunt injury) while we give what he thought was going to be an interview about our careers together. As you’ll see the moment I put my hands on my hips, that’s the drivers cue to pull away and reveal the big surprise. Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business. Love you uso and thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years. We’re just getting started. Enjoy your new truck! #LetsRoll 🤟🏾
