Dwayne Johnson freaked Kevin Hart out with insect pranks7th Jun 17 | Entertainment News
Kevin Hart caused a multitude of disruptions on the set of the new Jumanji remake because his co-star Dwayne Johnson would constantly prank the comedian with creepy crawlies.
The Central Intelligence stars reunited in the Hawaiian jungle last year (16) to film the revamp of Robin Williams' beloved 1995 movie, about a boy who becomes trapped in a magical board game, but Kevin insists the shoot turned into a real nightmare because they were in the wild.
"DJ (Johnson) plays way too much," the actor told U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America. "I don't like insects, I don't like animals. We were in Hawaii, in the jungle... They had centipedes all over the place. You get bit (sic) by one of these things, it's over! They're not poisonous or nothing, but in my mind, it's over...!"
"I don't know why but I was the only one that kept seeing them (centipedes)," he continued, "so the prop guy would have to come and get them out of there. I was like, 'You don't gotta kill 'em, just throw them on the other side of the island...!' They bite you and leave a nasty scar."
Dwayne was well aware of his pal's fear and decided to have a little fun on set - all at Kevin's expense.
"A lot of the scenes we gotta start off laying down in the jungle, 'cause the stunt guys would do the stunt and we gotta pick up where they end and get up as if we just did it (sic)," Kevin explained. "So we're laying on the ground... and they (cameramen) were rolling, so they're like, 'Action!' and he (Johnson) put something in my ear and I'm like, (screaming), 'Centipedes in my ear (sic)!'"
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle also stars Guardians of the Galaxy's Karen Gillan and funnyman Jack Black, and hits theatres in December (17).
