I dont know what else to say. I think this role actually suits him, much more than Duke Nukem.

Given his first performance on Saturday Night Live, this role might be very good for the Rock. It would allow him to show a different, more humorous side that could translate into better roles down the road.

Problem is he has to wear a wig. The hair was an huge source of Bravo's vanity. Hmm...

Well...

Uh...

It can't be any worse than "Scooby Doo".

Judging from the box-office performance of "PowerPuff Girls", I don't know if Johnny Bravo will be a hit. Then again The Rock is going to star in this. So we'll see.

Forgive me if I seem indelicate, but...

I was under the impression that the Johnny Bravo cartoon character is white, whereas The Rock is half black, half Samoan. I'm smiling at the thought of The Rock playing Johnny Bravo because I'm sure he'd do a wonderful job, however...

I can't imagine skin colour making a difference in the role...Rocky's already got the Johnny Bravo voice down pat.

Maybe I was watching the wrong cartoons as a kid (and growing up in Canada, maybe I didn't see all the ones there were to see) but who is Johnny Bravo? I assume he's no relation to Dino, eh?

Hey Yo...

Bravo's only been around for a few years. For awhile he was the flagship for Cartoon Network. He's basically a big guy with big hair who unsucessfuly tries to pick up chicks. His adventures consist of him going around, trying to look good, in his blonde hair, blue jeans and sunglasses and getting into trouble while trying to pick up beautiful babies.

I'll probably see it. Rock acting dumb on the big scree could be funny.

Ah, thanks WBTD. I thought maybe he was an old Hanna-Barbera (sp?) cartoon like Yogi Bear or The Flintstones or something.

The best Johnny Bravo episode is the one in which he runs into Scooby-Doo and his gang. It makes fun of a lot of the Scooby-Doo episodes.

I'm sorry, but I CAN imagine skin color making a difference. Rock, with his peanut buttery/brown skin (as he called it) donning a bright yellow wig to play a Venice Beach-esque muscle man just seems like it won't look right. I know it's supposed to look all cartoony, but if they're trying to keep Bravo's look, it ain't gonna work with the Rock.

Nah, they could just say he got a really wicked tan one day.

As for the hair, well, does he really have to be blond?

Actually yes, considering that's what Johnny Bravo has. Like I said before, I have no problem with The Rock as Johnny Bravo -- unless they're trying to make him look like the cartoon character.

I remember that Johnny Bravo/Scooby-Doo cartoon. Funny as hell.

In particular, I liked the scene in which Johnny Bravo and Velma lost their glasses simultaneously. They both started wandering aimlessly.

Velma: “My glasses! I can't see without my glasses!”

Johnny: “My glasses! I can't be seen without my glasses!”

GOLD.

*sigh* No one seems to remember that the original gimmick (for the first few episodes anyway) of Johnny Bravo was:

"We're the only cartoon daring enough to feature other people's cartoons!"

That made the show funny originally, then it dragged a bunch, but now it's pretty good just going with the stupidity of Johnny.

And of course Harvey Birdman stole his gimmick, to much greater success.

-Jag



With poison running through your veins, and death marching solemnly towards you, heroic acts become more of a necessity as you see your time dwindling.

Vanquishing your enemies, making amends to those you have wronged, and leaving words of love and kindness for those around you become second nature as your own mortality looms

However, true strength lies not in these last desperate acts, but in the actions of one who has to get out of bed the next day and face the consequences of doing that which you believe is right.

They had some good parodies, then they added Carl who sounds like SpongeBob Squarepants. That was when Johnny Bravo became unwatchable.

SpongeWho SquareWhat?

Oh well. I haven't watched cartoons in such a long time.

But the Rock as Johnny Bravo? Nononononononononononononono!

Anyone but the Rock! if they must make a Johnny Bravo movie, make it a cartoon movie! Please! they'll kill the series with a live action movie.
