From his height to his biceps, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood — and that goes for his paycheck too!

Industry insiders say the actor is desperate to be James Bond’s next bad guy, but producers can’t afford him. “Dwayne asked for more money than Daniel Craig gets to play Bond!” explains the source, who adds that the role calls for a hulking brute similar to metal-mouthed baddie Jaws from the early Bond films.

“Dwayne thought he’d be perfect, but shooting starts in a few weeks,” the insider adds. “Unless he lowers his rates, it’s not going to happen.”
