Not an evil twin: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is amazed by likeness to Alabama police officer

September 2, 2021

The Internet has discovered Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s doppelgänger and even he’s in awe of the similarities, HuffPost reports.

The 49-year-old actor, currently at the box office in Jungle Cruise, tweeted this week in response to a post by Bleacher Report that showed himself alongside an Alabama police officer named Eric Fields.

“Oh sh*t! Wow,” wrote Johnson in response to his likeness to the patrol lieutenant of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office. Of Fields, Johnson quipped that he’s “way cooler” and implored him to “stay safe brother and thank you for your service.”

He added that “one day we’ll drink @Teremana and I need to hear all your “Rock stories” because I KNOW you got ’em.” Teremana is the “Jungle Cruise” star’s brand of tequila.

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office shared a snapshot of Fields and a local man on their Facebook page earlier this month—noting that the man had informed a fellow police officer that he “wanted to meet our Deputy that people say looks like ‘The Rock.’”

Fields and the man are all smiles in the photograph.

News of Fields and The Rock looking like twins even hit TikTok, with locals in Alabama highlighting the resemblance with hilarious videos:

For his part, Fields, who is 37 and has worked for the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office for 17 years, told that it’s been a “running joke” for him that he looks so much like both The Rock and, apparently, Vin Diesel.

“I’ve been called The Rock and Vin Diesel’s love child,” Fields told the outlet last week. “I go along with it. It’s humorous. It’s flattering. It could be worse people, I guess.”

Roy Moore’s lead slips in new poll

November 14, 2017

A new poll on the Alabama Senate race, released November 12, gives Democrat Doug Jones his first lead over Republican Roy Moore. However, the race for the seat formerly held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions remains close, reported.

Louisiana-based JMC Analytics conducted the poll after allegations of sexual misconduct by Moore on three separate occasions with teen-aged girls were reported on November 9 by The Washington Post.

In the poll, Jones received 46% support, as compared 42% still in favor of Moore. With a margin of error of 4%, however, the race is essentially a statistical tie. Nine percent of respondents said they had not decided yet.

It’s the second poll since the allegations came out that reveals a loss of support for Moore. A Decision Desk HQ/Opinion Savvy poll released on November 10 had the race tied at 46-46.

Meanwhile, three other polls conducted after The Post allegations gave Moore a slight lead—but all acknowledged that his chance of winning was dwindling.

In stark contrast are the findings of a poll released November 10 exclusively to alt-right Breitbart News, a publication led by Stephen Bannon— the former White House strategy adviser who has endorsed Moore, campaigned on his behalf and spoken in his defense immediately following the report of sexual misconduct. That poll, alone—conducted by WT&S Consulting—gave Moore an 11-point lead.
