Young Rock is a visual retelling of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s pro wrestling career. The show has won critical acclaim for its portrayal of three different phases of The Rock’s life as well as his relationship with his family.
According to PW Insider, the series is now casting for The Rock’s peer from the Attitude Era, Brian Christopher, the late son of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler. Christopher was known as Grandmaster Sexay during his time in WWE.
The third season of NBC’s “Young Rock” will feature the late Brian Christopher aka Too Cool’s Grandmaster Sexay, PWInsider.com has learned.
Casting is underway to find someone to portray Christopher in his 20s circa Wrestlemania 13. The character may appear semi-regularly for the series based on their creative plans.
A younger version of Christopher as a child has appeared previously in episodes based on Rocky Johnson’s time in Memphis Wrestling’s CWA.
Young Rock Season 3 arrives on Friday, November 4th, on NBC. The popular series will go head to head with Fox’s main WWE offering, SmackDown. Keep reading Thirsty for more.
