Cheers to dreams not coming true 🥃 Not an easy concept to process, but the idea that sometimes our biggest and most important dreams that DON’T COME TRUE are often times the BEST THING that never happened. I’m shooting JUNGLE CRUISE now and right before I get called to set, I look up and see a CFL (Canadian Football League) game on my TV. I do a double take and realize that’s the same field I played on when I played in the CFL. I do a triple take and see the very man who coached and mentored me, but ultimately had to cut me from the team, Wally Buono who is now head coach and GM of the BC LIONS in Vancouver. Playing ball, I was always the “hardest worker in the room” and did everything I could to make the CFL and then hopefully, make it to the NFL where I dreamed of having an All Pro/Super Bowl Champion football career. Instead, I was cut from the team, told I wasn’t good enough - and sent home with $7 bucks to my name. After years of blood, sweat, guts and tears, my dream was over. Fell into depression, didn’t know what to do or where to turn. Eventually, I picked myself back up again, said fuck this and refocused and committed myself to a different path. The rest is history. I’ve been there, so I encourage you to keep working hard and remember that sometimes our dreams that don’t come true, can ultimately become the best thing that never happened.

Some real heat 🔥 heading into our season premiere of @ballershbo tomorrow night. And Ava DuVerNay @ava is a hungry trailblazer and brilliant visionary. Love that woman. It’d be my pleasure to work with her one day and dramatically disrupt the game. Til then, enjoy our new season and thank you for the support. ✊🏾🤟🏾 #ballers HBO @10pm Sunday.
#BecauseOfHer Love working with this woman @ChloeDomont on @ballershbo - she’s one of my fav directors. Our new @HBO campaign, highlights female talent behind the camera. Stories come to life #BecauseOfHer BALLERS this Sunday @10pm * Big shout to HBO President Casey Bloys for having expansive, inclusive dialogue and most importantly, taking action with the hiring of people of color and women. Fun fact is Casey and I went to high school together so he knows all my evil ways as a teenager. Not all, but most 😈
*watch ‘til the end and see one of the most awe inspiring & massive sets ever built from scratch. Walt Disney, this one’s for you buddy! 🧢 🤙🏾💫 Officially kicked off our @DisneysJungleCruise start of production with great respect, love, energy & mana. How cool is it that in 1955 when Disneyland first opened, Walt Disney himself, imagined and designed the first ever JUNGLE CRUISE ride. And he was the ride’s first skipper as well! A role that now I have the honor of bringing to life along with my incomparable co-star Emily Blunt ❤️ Heartfelt MAHALO to my home state of HAWAII for once again being a beautiful and exotic backdrop for one of my films. And for welcoming me and our big production back to the islands to help boost some economics and help our hard working locals and businesses. Honestly, this role is a dream come true and my gratitude & motivation to deliver something great is boundless. And 🤯🥃 now I need a drink. Welcome to the adventure of a lifetime... #JUNGLECRUISE 🚢 🗺🌴❤️
Surprise!🥋Black belt’s and OG chest hair. The Alan’s. On set of Disney’s JUNGLE CRUISE in my trailer. Surprised my good bud Alan Horn, the Chairman of Walt Disney Studios with one of my fav magazine covers of all time, Alan gracing the cover of Black Belt magazine when he was a bad ass martial artist back in the day. I embarrass the hell outta him whenever I bring this cover up, but to me it will always speak to hard work and discipline - two principles I believe we all have to have to achieve any kind of successful. The “other Alan” is Alan Bergman, the President of Walt Disney Studios. A good bud and the secret (not so secret) weapon of the entire Walt Disney company. Aside from us looking like identical twins, we share a lot of the same DNA - strands of which is we thrive on competition and hungry to always make positive impact on a global scale. Have a tremendous amount of respect for both these men and it’s an absolute pleasure doing business with them and Walt Disney Studios making JUNGLE CRUISE. Onward, upward. #Surprise #TheAlansAndDJ #Triplets #JUNGLECRUISE 🚢
Break thru your barriers 💦 💪🏾 After months of strict training and diet, we had a big breakthrough day in the gym today with new levels of strength, shape and intensity. Made a promise to the FAST & FURIOUS fans and franchise I’d come thru in the best shape of my life and deliver a fresh, exciting movie to the world. Been clangin’ & bangin’ hard core on this iron since I was 13yrs old, so it’s always fun to break thru barriers with new gains and raise the bar. And yes, when I was 13 I did tell myself “stop cryin’ like a little bitch and get in the gym and make something of yourself” when we got evicted off the island for not being able to pay rent. It worked. And I need therapy. And a cheat meal. #BreakThruYourBarriers #GotU #HobbsAndShaw
