Cuba Gooding Jr. : Dwayne Johnson
Cuba Gooding Jr. achieved film stardom thanks to his work in John Singleton’s Boyz N the Hood; he subsequently appeared in such major films as A Few Good Men, Men of Honor, Pearl Harbor, As Good As It Gets and American Gangster. In 1996 he starred in Cameron Crowe’s Jerry Maguire, which earned him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He stars in George Lucas’s Red Tails, which tells the dramatic -- and heretofore not widely known -- story of the brave (and ground-breaking) Tuskegee Airmen of World War II.
