Who would win in a head-to-head battle between The Rock and Ellen DeGeneres? We’re about to find out, because they’re going head-to-head at the movies this weekend! We like to call it “The Rock vs. the Fish” since it’s “Finding Dory.” Here’s a preview in tonight’s “Showtime.”
Dwayne Johnson (as Bob Stone): “Are you in or are you out?”
Kevin Hart (as Calvin Joyner): “Well, then, I’m out.”
Dwayne Johnson (as Bob Stone): “Actually, you’re already in.”
In “Central Intelligence,” Dwayne Johnson plays Bob, who was bullied in high school. But now, 20 years later, he’s a bad-to-the-bone CIA agent and reconnects with Calvin, played by Kevin Hart, who reluctantly helps him out.
Chris Van Vliet: “Kevin, your character in the film is most likely to succeed in high school. If we go back to high school, what are you guys most likely to do?”
Kevin Hart: “I was class clown.”
Chris Van Vliet: “So then what are you most likely to be?”
Kevin Hart: “As a class clown, nobody has any expectations. (laughs) They expect you to do exactly what you did in high school: barely get by and make people laugh.”
Dwayne Johnson: “I was generally on the jock side. I mean, my intellect was extremely high.” (laughs)
Ellen DeGeneres (as Dory): “Wait, no, I know where my parents are. They’re in the, uh, what’s it called? The place, was it open ocean?”
The friendliest fish in the sea is getting her own movie! And “Finding Dory” has her looking to find her parents.
Ellen DeGeneres (as Dory): “Something tells me they were mostly blue and maybe yellow.”
The sequel to “Finding Nemo” stars Ellen DeGeneres, and this role matches her real-life personality.
Ellen DeGeneres: “There’s not one speck of judgment in her, or meanness or anything, and I think that’s what people love so much about this character, this fish. It’s because she’s just happy.”
