Many fans find it hard to spot the difference between the two!
The Rock has a doppelganger! A couple of weeks ago the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office in Alabama posted a photo of one of their officers and it went completely viral! The reason? The officer in the photo looks almost exactly like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson! According to Country Rebel, someone on TikTok saw this photograph and made a video about it which sent hundreds of people to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page. "TikTok sent me here,” lots of people wrote on the photo, while others joked, “This is not The Rock, this is The Boulder.” Apparently, the man in the picture is Lieutenant Eric Fields, who is married to a nurse named Wendy, and they have two young children. What's even more eerily similar is that the officer even has a tribal chest and shoulder tattoo, just like The Rock! The 37-year-old has been working with the sheriff's department for 17 years, working in various venues, from the jail to SVU to drug enforcement. Lt. Fields is a graduate of Brewer High School in Somerville, Alabama.
I thought it was the Rock. 😮— Philipa Williams (@PhilipaWilliam5) August 26, 2021
Fans have been rushing in to comment unable to believe the two are not the same person in the picture. One person joked: NOPE! DON'T BELIEVE THIS PROPAGANDA! WE'RE BEING CATFISHED THAT IS DWAYNE THE ROCK JOHNSON! OR MAYBE AN IDENTICAL DOPPELGANGER! BUT I THINK THEY'RE SAYING IT'S SOMEONE ELSE SO THEY DON'T HAVE 50K+ CALLS FOR SERVICE FROM SINGLE MIDDLE AGED WOMEN WHO FELL WHILE IN THE SHOWER! Another added: Well…living in Decatur…I’ll say this…I may have to intentionally speed and pray I get pulled over by him. One user shared: definitely see the resembles to the rock ,but I also see Vin diesel maybe tiny bit of pit bull. He is a good looking officer (I know his wife is a very lucky lady )
Fields spoke to local news WVTM 13, saying, "I've been having fun with it. I'm a bit of a cross between The Rock and Vin Diesel. Remember, The Rock is six-foot-four, 260 pounds, and I'm only 6-foot-2, 230 pounds There is a big difference between the two of us." Another difference between the two is The Rock’s iconic eyebrow move down. “I have tried, but there’s only one Rock”.
Many have compared him to the famous actor and the officer has used this to try and connect with people in his community. Are some people intimidated? “I hope they don’t feel intimidated. I’m just trying to be a nice guy doing good things,” he responded. What's even more amazing is the news of The Rock's lookalike reached the star himself! "Oh shit! Wow,” he tweeted. “Guy on the left is way cooler. Stay safe brother and thank you for your service. One day we’ll drink @Teremana and I need to hear all your ‘Rock stories’ because I KNOW you got ‘em.” Who else is waiting for a crossover episode? How cool would it be two see both of them in the same frame? Make it happen, universe!
