An Alabama cop has gone viral because he looks just like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Morgan County Sheriff’s Office posted a photo on Facebook of Patrol Lieutenant Eric Fields looking like a doppelgänger for the Hollywood star.
The post now has nearly 500 comments and 3,000 reactions. At least one person has posted a video on TikTok trying to get The Rock himself to comment on the resemblance.
Fields, 37, told Alabama news site AL.com that he’s been compared to The Rock for years.
“I’ve been called The Rock and Vin Diesel’s love child,” he said. “I go along with it. It’s humorous. It’s flattering. It could be worse people, I guess.”
Fields, who has worked for the Sheriff’s Office for 17 years, said his wife sometimes buys him The Rock-themed gear for his workouts, but he wouldn’t go as far as impersonating the actor.
“I just plan on being me,” he said.
