After conquering the world of sports-entertainment, Johnson next set his sights on conquering Hollywood. Born May 2, in Hayward, CA, Johnson became a third-generation wrestler after shifting from a career in professional football to professional wrestling when an injury sidelined his gridiron aspirations. After flexing his acting muscles on television in Saturday Night Live, That '70s Show in which he played his own father , and The Net, Johnson made his feature debut with his role as the dreaded Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns Returning as the same character the following year in the appropriately titled The Scorpion King, Johnson did little to enhance his reputation of a trained thespian, though he did get the summer film season off to a rousing start for audiences hungering for some energetic escapist fun.
