A strong work ethic has also paid off for Johnson’s Jumanji co-star Kevin Hart —another top box-office draw who has sold out arenas across the country during his stand-up comedy tours.
It’s really about working hard for what I want, and to constantly grow and get to new levels in the business,” Hart explained to Vanity Fair on the red carpet.
The movie, out in theaters December 20, is about four high schoolers that get transported into an old video game, where they realize they have become the avatars they chose to play as.
The awkward nerd turns into a brooding, muscular hero (Johnson), the jock becomes a powerless sidekick (Hart), the outcast wallflower becomes a sexy martial-arts fighter ( Karen Gillan ), and the self-absorbed popular girl becomes an overweight male scientist (Black).
