As his options for roles he can convincingly play continues to shrink to only ultra-humanoids, giant Hercules star Dwayne Johnson is now in talks to play another demigod. According to The Wrap, The Rock is negotiating with Disney for a central voice part in Moana, a computer-animated film said to be set in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania. Johnson would play Maui, a demigod who accompanies the title character as she embarks on a nautical adventure that sees them battling sea monsters and more. Someone tell Patrick Warburton the bad news: he's been replaced as default voice of large, lunkheaded sidekicks.
