Haha geezus, you can tell by the look on my face how much warm love, admiration and gratitude I have for this mensch & mentor.
Great surprise to find out that, Ron Meyer (Vice Chairman of NBC Universal) flew in to visit our set of HOBBS & SHAW here in London.
Years ago when I was working hard to break into Hollywood, Ron saw my box office viability and potential force, by giving the “green light” for my first ever starring role as, “The Scorpion King” for Universal Pictures.
I had zero acting experience, so all I could offer Ron was my word and handshake to work as hard as I possibly could to deliver — and to not suck lol.
The rest is history.
And I’ve been the luckiest SOB ever since to have the career I’ve had.
