My close friends refer to me as the big, brown tattooed Forrest Gump because of everyone and everything that has weaved in and out of my surreal life. I've seen it all my friends - success, failure, homelessness, evictions, suicide attempts, arrests, hard times, good times, low times, high times. And all this shit happened to me by the time I turned 21.''

In the video, Johnson said: "We`re going to find the Rock wreaking havoc in the streets of Hawaii getting arrested.

We were forced to leave the island and move to all places, Nashville, Tennessee. Those were the years that were very formative and helped shape me. The confluence of wild personalities that came in and out of my life during these times are just fascinating."`Coming Soon`, he added. he is supposed to be Johnson`s second NBC series.
