- Dwayne Johnson reacted to an Alabama cop who went viral for looking similar to him.
- In a tweet, Johnson said that Patrol Lieutenant Eric Fields is “way cooler” than him.
- The actor also shared his hope to meet with the cop someday and hear his “Rock stories.”
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has weighed in on the police officer from Alabama who recently went viral for his uncanny resemblance to the actor.
On Monday, the “Jungle Cruise” star reshared a tweet posted by @BleacherReport, which featured a side-by-side comparison of Patrol Lieutenant Eric Fields from the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office on the left and Johnson on the right.
“Wow. Guy on the left is way cooler. Stay safe brother and thank you for your service. One day we’ll drink @Teremana and I need to hear all your ‘Rock stories’ because I KNOW you got ’em #ericfields,” Johnson wrote in response to the similarity while referencing the tequila brand that he founded.
The “Jumanji” star’s reaction came days after more people caught on to Fields’ striking resemblance to Johnson.
Fields, who has worked for the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office for 17 years, looked especially similar to Johnson in photos posted on the sheriff’s office Facebook account days ago.
The recent widespread attention was partly due to a viral TikTok posted by @chandlerelyse_, who hoped that Johnson would see the video and notice the officer.
According to one of the Facebook posts, Fields is known for being Johnson’s doppelgänger and people ask to meet him.
Fields himself recently told AL.com that he’s used to the attention, and has also “been called The Rock and Vin Diesel’s love child.”
“I go along with it,” he said. “It’s humorous. It’s flattering. It could be worse people, I guess.”
