This weekend, Dwayne Johnson tries to outrun Mother Nature in “San Andreas,” a big, dumby and sorta goofy fun disaster movie (read our review). But that won’t be the last of The Rock you see this summer. He’s bringing his People’s Elbow and boundless charisma to HBO for the comedy series “Ballers,” and a new trailer is here.
Rob Corrdry, Omar Benson Miller, John David Washington, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, and Arielle Kebble also star in this one about a former athlete who mentors football players through the choppy waters of professional sports. But this basically looks like “Entourage v.2” with more gridiron and less Johnny Drama. Not that it’s a bad thing necessarily, but one does wonder how many shots of babes partying on yachts someone needs.
“Ballers” gets in the game on Sunday, June 21st. Watch below.
