Yep, you read that right. After Of Mice & Men’s Aaron Pauley sent a Tweet to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, simply saying he was excited for the new Jumanji movie, he got a reply—and a confirmation that Johnson is a fan of the band, too.
“Thx dude. You'll dig Jumanji. You & the band keep kickin' ass. #OfMiceAndMen,” Johnson shared on Twitter.

Of course, fans were responding to Johnson’s tweet with some excitement. One of our favorite bands, one of our favorite childhood actors and one of our favorite movies all Tweeting about each other? A dream.
@TheRock Can't wait for Jumanji, player!

And this isn’t the first time an actor has shown a band in the scene some love. Lin-Manuel Miranda was exposed to the Wonder Years' “I Don't Like Who I Was Then,” and he realized what we’ve known for years.
“’If I Can Manage Not To F*ck This Up’ is a tasty, tasty lyric. Thanks for this, new to me!” he shared on Twitter.
We just hope to see the actor/band love keep coming.
