When I first saw Matterhorn from the ground up, I felt as if I was looking at a solidified ardent flame. A native who saw me look at it with awe said: “You can climb it,” as if it were nothing. I laughed…not at him but at me. I wouldn’t dare think of trying that.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (1972-present) – Pro-Wrestler, Scorpion King. Yet another wrestler, I know, but The Rock is perhaps one of the better athlete-actor crossovers there is. Mummy franchise and The Game Plan aside, Dwayne Johnson is entertaining to watch.
