PIC: Dwayne Johnson's cousin Tanoai Reed is the spitting image of him - and his stunt double - entertainment.ie according to : Entertainment.Ie

Born in Hawaii, Tanoai Reed is the great nephew of Johnson's grandmother, Lia Maivia. Yup, even Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson needs a stunt double to achieve those magnificent, physical, on-screen feats.

But even the brawniest of film stars require a stunt double, and it just so happens that Dwayne's is his near-identical cousin, Tanoai Reed. They have been working together since 2002 when Dwayne was working on The Scorpion King and Tanoai jumped in to be his body double. However, his Baywatch co-star Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, has – for as long as we can remember – had biceps the size of babies. He managed to shatter his ankle while filming a scene for The Rundown in 2003 when he rolled down a cliffside. To us, he will always be the slightly terrifying and insanely built professional wrestler on WWF.

Dwayne Johnson's cousin looks just like him AND he's his stunt double

Dwayne Johnson is one of the most in-shape guys in Hollywood. But even The Rock has a stuntman for when he's filming his Hollywood blockbusters, and it happens to be his cousin, Tanoai Reed, who also bears more than a passing resemblance to his superstar relation (via MoviePilot). Of course since then, Dwayne Johnson has starred in loads of other films, gradually becoming the A-list megastar that he is now, and Tanoai has gone along with him all the way. Forget Jumanji, this sorcery looks like it would be more suited to a wizarding lesson in Harry Potter's Hogwarts.
