Why Kevin Hart Doesn’t Want Dwayne Johnson in His Heist Crew


Kevin Hart is set to star in the new Netflix heist thriller Lift. But don’t expect Hart to look to his frequent co-star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson if he had to pull off a real-life heist.

During the red carpet premiere of the film this week, Hart laughed off the idea of teaming up with Johnson to stage any type of crime. 

“Who’s gonna blow it? Dwayne,” he laughed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “Yeah, blow it every day… He’ll do it every day of the week,” 

Hart recently told People that he has a “secret” action star group chat that includes Johnson as well as Mark Wahlberg, Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, Jet Li, and Jackie Chan. 

“When you’re an action guy, you have to have action stories so our chat is all about ping-ponging action stories and just making sure that everyone’s in sync, you know? That’s what it’s about,” he said.

Johnson and Hart have previously appeared together in Jumanji, DC League of Superpets, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, and Central Intelligence. While they might be swapping stories behind the scenes, don’t expect Hart to enlist Johnson’s help in pulling off a real-life scam. 

Lift hits Netflix on January 12.
