Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is as popular as ever. In response to his hints about a 2020 Presidential run, a new committee — “Run the Rock 2020” — has filed to draft him as a candidate. How is his HBO TV show doing, though? Is it a winner? Will Ballers be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned.
Ballers stars Johnson, Rob Corddry, John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, London Brown, Arielle Kebbel, Dulé Hill, Richard Schiff and Andy Garcia. In the HBO comedy-drama, former superstar Spencer Strasmore (Johnson) has re-invented himself as a financial adviser in Miami, taking on young phenoms and veteran superstars alike. Spencer’s role in his clients’ lives far exceeds money management as he struggles to help them navigate the many pitfalls that come with life in the spotlight.
