Watch Dwayne Johnson in New 'Skyscraper' Trailer; Here's Everything We Know

Dwayne Johnson is on a terrific roll right now. He's developed a likable big-screen presence and has chosen projects that allow him to shine as a heroic leading man. While he's not afraid of roles that poke self-aware fun at his macho reputation — witness Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle — he's equally happy to embrace stereotypes, as long as they have feature some twists and turns to familiar formulas.

That appears to be the case with Skyscraper. Sure, he's a heroic leading…

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Asked Jimmy Kimmel to Deliver His Baby

Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, has a problem and he is pretty sure that Jimmy Kimmel can help him solve it.

The Rock stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night to ask Kimmel for help. “We’re expecting probably within the next two weeks, so I’m on code red high alert,” he told Kimmel.

“As of now, the doctor said it looks like we’re gonna be OK. The baby should be born when it’s due, which is April 25.” There’s one small problem, though: The Rock is in the middle of a press tour for his new film Rampage and has to be away from home. If the baby comes early, as babies frequently do, Johnson is worried that he won’t make it back in time to be in the delivery room when his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, gives birth.

Johnson needs someone on call to step in and lend a helping hand on his behalf if he can’t make it. That’s where Kimmel comes in. “I’m going to need a doula that’s going to help me deliver and, well, it’s gotta be you,” he told Kimmel.

Since no one says “no” to The Rock, Kimmel quickly agreed. “I’d love to be the doula,” the host said. “I’d be more than happy to fill in for you. I will wear one of your outfits—the whole thing.” That’s what friends — and late night talk show hosts — are for, apparently.

Tyrese Ends Feud With Dwayne Johnson After ‘Heart To Heart’ Talk

Tyrese Gibson has yet to speak directly to his “Fast and Furious” co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson since posting several lengthy tirades against the actor, but he has spoken with one of the actor’s “associates” to apparently end the feud.

The beef seemingly started after news of Johnson’s “Fast and Furious” spinoff delaying “Fast and Furious 9” by a year, meaning Tyrese – who says he’s broke from his legal battles with ex-wife Norma Gibson – wouldn’t see his “Fast and Furious 9” coin for another year as well.

But Tyrese appeared to end the spat with one final Instagram message. “I️ had a real Heart to Heart with one of Dewayne’s [sic] associates and this will be my last post about him,” he said on the social media platform, adding, “I️ respect the associate who called.”

The next “Fast and Furious” film – the ninth of a planned 10 film run – was originally set to premiere in April 2019, but Universal has since delayed it until April 2020 to make room for the spinoff featuring Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters, which will be released on July 26, 2019.

Adam DeVine Reveals Why He’ll Be a Better MTV Movie & TV Awards Host Than Kevin Hart and Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson

Post-Workaholics, Adam DeVine is taking on a new role — as host of the MTV Movie & TV Awards!

Previously titled the MTV Movie Awards, the annual celebration of movies will now include TV series for the first time in 25 years — and PEOPLE sat down with DeVine to find out what he has planned for the newly minted show.

“I’m already getting good vibes,” he said onset while shooting promotions for the awards. “I feel like they’re probably going to invite me back every year.”

As both a movie and television actor, the hilarious comic, 33, seems like a perfect fit for the revamped ceremony.

“I feel like I am the biggest movie and television star together as one,” he said of being chosen to host. “Will Smith might have something to say about that but they didn’t ask him , they asked me. So who’s the bigger star? It’s him, but I’m doing the best with what I have.”

From Coinage: See Where 6 Stars Were Before They Were Famous

While on his tour bus for his stand-up comedy shows, DeVine shares he got the call asking him to be host.

“I was a little hungover and I was in the back of the bus and they’re like, ‘We got big news!’ And they told me and I literally went — gasp!” he said. “They’re like, ‘Oh no, did he just die?’ But I didn’t die — I started living. Finally. With that news I could finally live.”

The pressure is on for DeVine to top last year’s co-hosts Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson, but he says that he’s up for the challenge. “I’m going to be more muscular than them and have more vascularity,” he says. “That’s the only way.”

As for his favorite nominees, DeVine is rooting for his home teams. “I believe Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and Ice Age: Collision Course are going to take every award,” he said of the two movies he had a starring role in.

Last year’s MTV Movie Awards saw some great moments from DeVine, including his on stage smooch with Pitch Perfect co-star Rebel Wilson after the two won the award for “Best Kiss.”

This year, the duo will be exchanging advice instead, since Wilson hosted the awards in 2013.

“She’s probably going to tell me to do a big song and dance number and I might listen,” he said. “I also might have to ask big Conan O’Brien  with that curly mop top that he’s got and ask him what I should do. Hopefully he doesn’t say, ‘Just be 6’4″ and have red hair’ because I won’t be able to pull that off.”

DeVine won’t be involved in the upcoming Pitch Perfect 3 with Wilson, but he still gave an idea about what his character, Bumper, has been up to since Pitch Perfect 2. “ probably lusting after Fat Amy somewhere just pining for her,” he imagined. “He’s probably homeless — that’s probably it. Bumper fell on some hard times when Fat Amy kicked him to the curb.”

While the award categories are different this year, the iconic golden popcorn awards will remain the same. As a two-time winner, DeVine gave some advice on the best place to keep the statues.

“I keep them right in the spare bedroom,” he said. “People come and they spend the night, and they realize where they’re at, the level of star that I am. I have two golden popcorns and a Teen Choice Award so I’m peaking. This is it for me.”

With some newfound free time since the Workaholics finale premiered, DeVine has plans to turn this hosting gig into a long-term career.

“I’m going to host award shows for the foreseeable future — any award show,” he said. “I’m going to start big with the MTV Movie & TV Awards and then I’m going to maybe host dog competitions. If not, then hopefully some other movies.”

The MTV Movie & TV Awards will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on May 7 at 8:00 p.m.

Watch Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Sing His Hilarious Moana Song (by Lin-Manuel Miranda!)

Moana rode the waves of critical acclaim to a $ 81.1 million five-day box office total this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. But for those who didn’t get a chance to see the animated Polynesian adventure, Disney has released video of one of the musical’s biggest numbers: “You’re Welcome.”

The tune — written by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda — is reminiscent of the Pulitzer Prize winner’s history-making musical. In addition to its catchy melody, there’s also a quick-rhymed rap breakdown halfway through the number that will have fans hanging on every word.

And yes, that’s really Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson singing on the track. PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive voices Maui, the demigod who, according to the song, is pretty much responsible for everything on earth — from the tides to the sunshine the days itself.

Johnson grew up singing, so the notes weren’t that much a stretch for the former wrestler.

“Generally in Polynesian culture, we’re raised on singing and playing guitar or ukulele and dancing and singing,” he told PEOPLE. “Some of the coolest things I think about Polynesian men is that they are so massive and so big but yet they have the most beautiful falsetto voices and it’s extremely off-putting when you see them at first. It’s not what you expect.”

RELATED VIDEO: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Lullaby Will Completely Soothe You

While Moana may be the first time Johnson has sung on film, the 44-year-old often sings one sweet song for his 11-month-old baby girl, Jasmine.

“It’s a special lullaby,” he told PEOPLE of the Polynesian song.

“When my daughter Simone, who is now 15 years old, was 8 9 months old too, I would sing it to her,” he added. “She would laugh, she would smile, she would coo, she would cry.”

When his daughters aren’t around, Johnson’s singing doesn’t stop.

“I sing everything and anything that comes to mind — but to be clear, songs I know that I can kill,” he told PEOPLE. “That’s what I sing. I don’t try material out in the shower. I’m like, ah, Sam Cooke, got it, got it. ‘You-ooh-ooh-ooh send me.’ ”

Moana is in theaters now.
