When asked who inspired the famous, brilliant, and hard-working actor MJ George, he without a doubt mentioned Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. George says, “I hope to be like The Rock, who is now the hardest working and highest-paid actor in Hollywood. He produces 2-3 films every year, has his television series, activewear line, tequila line, and numerous other business ventures.” @whoismjgeorge (https://www.instagram.com/p/CWhVHOhFb1j/) recently shared a photo of himself carrying a bottle of Rock’s tequila with the message, “@therock Sir, what’s the move tonight?
M.J. George (Mansour Jabbaar) is a California-born actor who has been working in the industry since 2001. His career began when a casting director at Central Casting approached him about playing Will Smith’s body double while filming the hit sci-fi picture Men in Black II. Since then, he’s appeared in advertisements for Comcast Xfinity, Starbucks, ESPN, Cox Communications, Chipotle, Dr. Pepper, Oscar Insurance, and Great Wolf Lodge, among others. In addition, he has appeared as a guest star on FOX’s 9-1-1(2019) as Fight Organizer, NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2020) as a limo driver named Ramon Calla Vega, Amazon’s Them (2021) as a mover named Delroy, and Netflix’s The Upshaws (2021) as Martin Owens in popular television shows.

He has also worked as a substitute teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District for the past eight years.
The success that MJ shares with his social media followers did not happen overnight; MJ has been in the profession for more than two decades to get to where he is now, and George believes there is still an opportunity for progress.
