Break em down. Build em up. TONIGHT at 10PM on HBO (join us or set your DVR's) I'll show you why this hard core boot camp prison is one of the MOST SUCCESSFUL IN THE WORLD. Our US recidivism rate (convicts returning to prison after they've been released) is a staggering 76%. The recidivism rate at this one of kind Dade County Boot Camp Prison is astonishingly below 20%. Join us and you'll see why and how this correctional facility truly changes lives of troubled young men. #rockandahardplace#hbo#passionproject TONIGHT AT 10pm on @HBO.
It's Monday and I'm already full of piss and vinegar. Meaning I show up on set, in character and already at an intense 10. Here I'm alpha posturing over our #ballers director @davidkatzenberg because he wants me to act out my scene in a French accent. I've told this asshole a thousand times, I don't speak French, I only kiss that way. While ESPN's @markschlereth looks on, balling his fist up 'cause it might be go time. Great way to kick off our week. David's become one of my fav directors to work with and Mark aka "Big Stink" is one of the NFL's all time greats. Luv these boys. #onset#lalive#frenchismyjam#ballers THIS SUMMER 🔥
An absolute blast shooting our #baywatch commercial with the GOAT himself @m_phelps00. Even with his iconic 'poise under pressure' from winning a record 23 OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALS, he can't help but crack up and ruin the take when I go off script and call him a "sexy motherf*cker". Trust me, I will ruin multiple takes on every project just to get a good laugh in. Luv this dude! A blast. #onset#espn#commercialshoot#rockandphelpsie#baywatch MAY 26th.
"I don't want them to lose hope". Set your DVR's or tune in TONIGHT on HBO for my passion project. Truth is, this unique boot camp prison is designed to break these young convicts down. Hard. Down to their knees. Down to their tears. But if they can mentally push thru the psychological pain... there's a real shot at becoming a better man. Break em down. Build em up. Real change. Real reform. Join us TONIGHT on HBO. #rockandahardplace#passionproject#dadecounty#bootcampprison
Donned the #baywatch superhero look one more time. Phenomenal Sunday shoot with Paramount Studios and ESPN. My work schedule is an insanely tricky precise thing to manage and I appreciate EVERYONE (especially our awesome Paramount team) working hard on a Sunday to accommodate working on my only off day. THANK YOU. Always grateful for the multiple teams that make the machine run smoothly. If I unzipped this jacket a little lower it becomes a whole new movie. *cue cheesy porn music. Baw chicka baw bawww. #promoshoot#espn#paramountstudios#baywatch
Great therapeutic way to end a very tough and emotional week. We blew off lots of steam. Thank you guys so much for the outpouring of luv, support and condolences. Means so much to me and our family. In the wake of any death, we gotta live as greatly as we possibly can, hold onto our faith, be grateful for every blessing and hug and protect our loved ones just that much tighter. You guys have a great Sunday and let's have a productive week. Thank you again. Grateful for the luv. Luv u back. 🤙🏾
Mark your calendars and set your DVR's for THIS MONDAY on HBO. This young man, Plemons had two home armed robbery invasions and facing possible LIFE in prison. Judge showed mercy and gave him ONE SHOT at this hard core prison boot camp. If you look closely he had to duck tape his glasses together because they broke. I asked him, IF he completes his boot camp sentence, what's the first thing he's gonna do when he gets out? He said throw away his broken glasses and buy a new pair. I told him he should buy a new pair, but hold onto these broken duck taped glasses because they're now a symbol of CHANGE. He smiled huge and agreed. Funny how little things Iike this can mean so much to someone who turns their life around. Join us this Monday for my passion project and look inside a place that has real impact on young lives. Break em down. Build em up. #rockandahardplace#sevenbucksprods THIS MONDAY on HBO.
"She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean, she was the best damn woman that I'd ever seen" THANK YOU city of LAS VEGAS, Cosmopolitan Hotel and all the hard working locals and small businesses for being such welcoming hosts to me and our entire @ballershbo production crew. You helped make our shoot a big success. Grateful dap. 👊🏾 #whathappensinvegas#ballers#hbo NEW season...THIS JULY 🔥🔥🔥
Years ago I came to this one of kind Dade County Boot Camp Prison to talk with convicted felons about second chances at life. I knew this place was special and the world had to see positive impact it was having on these youth offenders. I called our HBO partners and said let's make a powerful documentary that will have a lasting impact on our troubled youth and their families. They said, done. I then called the creators of LOCK UP and asked them to partner up on this. They said done. What you're watching here is prison intake at 2am. Inmates are bussed in, shocked by the intense process and have their heads shaved by one another, which explains why many have fucked up haircuts. It's brutal and just the beginning. Mark your calendars and JOIN US THIS MONDAY on HBO. Break em down. Build em up. #rockandahardplace#sevenbucksprods#44blue#hbodocumentaryfilms
TBT from the massive destroyed set of #hercules in Budapest and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my producing partner Beau Flynn of @flynnpictureco. We made a pact years ago to build big business and make global movies that impact and entertain audiences around the world. From JOURNEY 2: MYSTERIOUS ISLAND to HERCULES to SAN ANDREAS to BAYWATCH to RAMPAGE to SKYSCRAPER to many more big ones we're developing and announcing soon. Beau's one of the most successful and sought after producers in Hollywood. As an A-list producer he brings additive value to every studio partnership with his filmmaking acumen, storytelling and killer instinct. But what sets him apart from the pack is he achieves global success with class, poise and integrity. Very rare combo in our business. He's a good man who puts in the hard work daily to take care of his family and serve our global audience. Bottom line: he's an asshole, but it's his birthday and I gotta play nice. #happybirthdaybeau#flynnpicturesco#sevenbucksprods#sendthepeoplehomehappy 🌏
Rest In Peace & Love to my second dad Sib Hashian. Don't know why things have to happen the way they do sometimes. When loved ones leave us so suddenly without having a chance to say goodbye. Perhaps the lesson here is the reminder to live our lives as full and as present as we possibly can, because we just never know what's around the corner. What a full and exciting life this man lived. What an amazing family he created, loved, watched over and protected. Being on stage, in front of adoring fans, friends and family. Keeping the beat one last time. Your passing in this manner is extremely poetic and somehow beautiful. Thank you for the many life lessons you've taught over the years. Grateful. We love you Sib. We miss you. Yhmwitcoltroml. "Hasan burgers" for everyone in heaven.
Taitusi this message is for you. Make a Wish just called me and I wish I could be there with you in Hawaii right now. Even at 13yrs old you're already way stronger than I'll ever be. Ever. Even though we've never met, I can already tell you're one of the coolest and most amazing kids I've ever talked to like this. I just want you to know how amazing and special of young boy you are. You inspire every single person around you right now. Including me. God bless you and your family and yes I'm gonna go crazy on rice crispy treats this weekend for my cheat meal in your honor 🤙🏾💪🏾 Alofa atu, DJ
Front bumps and blue eyed demons.. dig our NEW world premiere trailer for #baywatch. We have RED BAND trailer coming next month that's so exquisitely raunchy we're creating a new color. Until then enjoy this one and check out the full trailer in my bio. #baywatch Summer is coming! Let's have some fun.. MAY 26th 🔥🔥🔥👊🏾
This guys salt of the earth and a real pleasure to work with this Hollywood OG Steve Guttenberg. Had some great chats with him about how far gratitude and humility will take you in our business and more importantly, in life. Ironically, he plays a Las Vegas billionaire asshole on @BallersHBO, but don't let the artistic choice cloud your judgement when you see him in our show ;). #onset#lasvegas#ballers#hbo#rockandthegoot THIS SUMMER 🔥👊🏾
Our HBO documentary is a passion project of mine and an important one. This one of a kind Dade County boot camp prison is constantly in danger of being shut down due to budgetary cuts from the city. That can't ever happen. This incarceration facility changes young men's lives. Lives that are often overlooked. Not here. Not ever. Change is real, but it only becomes real when it's earned. Mark your calendars for NEXT MONDAY MARCH 27th on HBO and I'll show you the impact this boot camp has on these young men. Break em down. Build em up. #rockandahardplace#hbo#dadecounty MARCH 27th.
The world record longest drive is 515 yards set in 1974. My drive here measured an estimated 490 yards by the scientists holding the rulers. I failed math when I was a kid, but I think that's kinda close. One fun day I will break the world record. Great day on the links shooting scenes for our @ballershbo. Subsequently, I also hit two other great balls... when I stepped on a rake. Ok, no more bullshit haha.. back to work. Have a productive day. #onset#ballers#lasvegas#thegolfingbeast 🏌🏾 Big shout out to my bud and the man himself @jordanspieth for my gear 👊🏾
Because the climate is right for a good ol' RATED R rescue can and beach balls shaped in the form of a penis and testicles joke. This WEDNESDAY we bring you the EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIERE of our brand NEW @BaywatchMovie trailer. #bayday#bebaywatch#baywatch MAY 26th * For the record, my one ball is bigger than @zacefron's.
It's hard for people to grasp when I tell them this but so many youth offenders charges as adults choose YEARS of prison time over a six month sentencing to this one of kind boot camp prison. Word on the streets down in our Dade County is this is a place you don't want to f*ck with. To many offenders facing the judge, doing years of prison is easier and a badge of honor. But the ones that choose boot camp over prison are immediately on the path to change. They're completely broken down in every aspect - mentally, spiritually and physically. But they're also built back up to become better men. Changed men with one more opportunity to make something of themselves. It's up them. That's why I said, "You're probably asking yourself what have I gotten myself into right now?". I was there at 2am when we brought them in for their first night in the camp. The look of "what the f*ck is happening" washed over all of their faces. I was also there six months later when they graduated, in front of their families and changed men. In ONE WEEK on MARCH 27th join me on @hbo and I'll take you thru their journey. Mark your calendars.. you won't want to miss this. Break em down. Build em up. #rockandahardplace#dadecountybootcamp MARCH 27th. On HBO.
Flying to Vegas today for work and going over all my biz, then that feeling hits me...how wild and crazy I get when I go to Vegas... I give the word "bender" a new meaning jack. Then I said F*ck it and threw business plans in the air while staring at the camera like a G. Then I humbly picked my papers up because in actuality my version of "wild" in Vegas is going to work, the gym and eating dead cow w/ baked potatoes and tequila. Happy Sunday everyone. Have a great productive week. And say f*ck it and throw your papers around every once in a while. It's fun.
What a team! That's a wrap. Another one down. Sometimes the greatest (and sweatiest) of things happen in the grittiest of places. THANK YOU to our @underarmour partners flying in for this epic shoot in the #westcoastironparadise. These guys and gals are true innovative rockstars. This is a small group of THOUSANDS of #underarmour employees worldwide who we're proud to work with. We're building strongly as partners and creating killer gear for the people - which at the end of the day is what all this fun fuss is about anyway. NEW #projectrock COLLECTION drops APRIL 5th. For the people.. 🔥✊🏾💪🏾
Ink can be a powerful reminder of what our anchors are. Big luv and gratitude to @agyetvay for this strong ⚓️. I came up with this years ago when I was struggling to "figure my sh*t out" and what kind of man I needed to become. We all go thru it. It's become our daily mantra. First two we give. Last one we earn. #respect#greatestfansintheworld#gointhruthatgoodpain 😉🤙🏾・・・ "Blood, sweat and respect...the first two you give, last one you earn" - @therock 💪🏽 I have the utmost respect for @therock. He is such a positive influence in our world to so many individuals, including myself😉You have to put in the hours of hard work to get the results and respect when it comes to anything in life, whether it may be work, relationships or fitness..give it your all. @therock #therock#dwaynejohnson#attractivetattoo#mondaymotivation#motivation#workhard#life#bloodsweatrespect
