With Hollywood’s seemingly endless thirst for reboots, one classic comedy that has yet to receive the remake treatment is “Three Men and a Baby”, the 1987 farce starring Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg as a trio of single guys whose lives are turned upside down when they’re entrusted with the care of an infant.
Twitter user Erick Sanchez had a brilliant casting idea for a new version of the film, and pitched his dream-cast concept to none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, envisioning the former WWE champ teaming up with frequent co-star Kevin Hart and Vancouver-born funnyman Seth Rogen for a reboot.
The tweet earned a response from Johnson himself, who used the opportunity to take a playful shot at Hart, with whom he’s co-starred in “Central Intelligence” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”.
“Great idea,” tweeted Johnson, while joking that “technically we’d have to call it “Two Men and a lil s**t head.”
Rogen jumped in to pile on Hart, joking, “With no CGI, @KevinHart4real could easily play the baby.”
Hart responded to Rogen’s suggestion by stating that he’d happily play a baby in a movie so long as he go to do “a bunch of action scenes.”
This is far from the first time that Johnson has goofed on the five-foot-four comedian’s diminutive stature, jokingly referring to Hart “snack-size Denzel” and even sharing a Photoshopped pic depicting him as an infant.
