The Rock is Getting ‘Fast & Furious 8’ Ready With a New Diet

Project Casting

Dwayne Johnson reveals his new diet for Fast & Furious 8 and it’s intense.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is a huge man. The 6’4 bodybuilder/actor/wrestler/lifeguard takes personal fitness extremely seriously. And now the actor is giving us some insight into what food is powering the bodybuilder as he leaves the set of Baywatch and gets into shape for his next project, Fast & Furious 8. 

His Instagram snapshot confirms he’s going to start filming Fast & Furious 8 in four weeks. Shooting has already taken place in Iceland and Havana, Cuba. More filming is planned for next month in Cleveland, Ohio and later in the year in Atlanta and New York.

Here’s what he posted on Instagram:

Fun transition begins. Final weeks of shooting #BAYWATCH, and today I start my prep for #FastAndFurious8 which I start shooting in 4 weeks. Physically for #BAYWATCH I wanted “Mitch Buchannon” to come in lean, mean, and a dysfunctional superhero of the beach. And full of raunchy Rated R humor. Mission accomplished.

Johnson continued:

For FAST8, the character of “Hobbs” will come in like an animal — bigger, lethal, meaner and tougher than a $2 dollar steak. 530am breakfast. Grass fed buffalo, whole eggs and 80grams of Cream of Wheat. (trust me, if I could cook up Vin, Statham and the rest of the Fast dudes I’d eat them too). This is gonna fun. #FF8Prep #HobbsTheBeast #FinelyTuned #2DollarSteakSucksButEadible #INeedACheatMeal

Tougher than a $2 steak! That’s hilarious. In Fast & Furious 8, Johnson will reprise his role of Luke Hobbs as an agent of the DSS, formerly of US Customs Service. Johnson played Hobbs in the previous three movies: Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6,and Furious 7. The other fit actors joining Johnson around the locations of New York, Atlanta, and Cuba for Fast 8 include Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Eva Mendes, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron, and Jason Statham.
