Joshua Hoffman has watched his character RJ Forrester join the ranks of Forrester designers on The Bold and the Beautiful. RJ paid tribute to another fashion icon — The Rock, AKA Dwayne Johnson, who is known for a particular look from years back. Hoffman tells Soap Hub about how his homage to the action hero came to be.

Joshua Hoffman: Solid As A Rock

A few months ago, RJ was wearing a somewhat tight black T-shirt that showed off his physique and a piece of jewelry, a chain on the outside of his shirt. Right away, viewers and Hoffman himself drew parallels between Hoffman’s look and one that The Rock sported a while back. After a taping at The Talk last month, Hoffman chatted with Soap Hub about the visual that made its way onto social media.

“[RJ’s look] was literally like the meme of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson where he’s got this turtleneck on and the chain over the shirt,” Hoffman says. “I liked the pose and [realized] this needs to be somewhere.”

At one point, Hoffman shared images of himself and The Rock side by side on the Web, showing everyone he’s got quite the sense of humor. Has he heard from the wrestler turned-movie star? “No, no, I didn’t [even] tag him,” explains Hoffman, who adds with a good-natured chuckle, “I was scared!”

The actor says he enjoys having a laugh to get through the day. “I like to have a sense of humor,” he says. “The show will give me lines sometimes [where I can] make a little joke. I’ll go to Ed [Scott, Supervising Producer] and be like, ‘Hey, so can I make this even funnier?’ Sometimes, he says yes. Sometimes, he says no.” Referring to showrunner Bradley Bell, Hoffman says that Scott will say to him, “I’ll call the guy upstairs.”
