WWE fans know Dwayne Johnson as “The Rock,” while movie-goers are going to know this muscular man from such roles as “The Scorpion King,” and “G.I. Joe.” His most recent release was “Fast & Furious 6.” On June 11 another well-known role, John Matthews in “Snitch” is released on DVD and Blu-ray.
In an exclusive clip for ET Online, Dwayne shows us a softer side. In “Snitch” Johnson plays a tough dad forced to make a decision to save his son. Dwayne must drive drugs for a cartel which turned into an especially emotional scene – which, according to ET , was almost ruined by a continuity error.

“Snitch” is based on a true story of a man named John Matthews, played by Johnson, who has to make a dramatic choice after his estranged teenage son, Jason, is accused of a drug distribution crime. Jason, who is played by Rafi Gavron, is arrested and charged with drug trafficking and is faced with an unjust prison sentence as a first time offender, thanks to the states mandatory minimum sentence laws. Jason has nothing to offer of leniency. John is desperate to convince the DA to let him go undercover with the hopes of making enough arrests that the DEA will release his son.
Matthews will move heaven and earth to get his hands in every operation in order to see his son set free. Will Matthews make it out alive? You’ll have to watch “Snitch” to find out.
