Shaquille O’Neal will star alongside Kyrie Irving in the upcoming Uncle Drew film, but that’s not the only Hollywood involvement he plans on doing. Not to mention, he is also developing a TBS show with Ken Jeong in addition to touring under the name DJ Diesel this summer.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Shaq explained that he wants to be as big as The Rock.

“We come from the same place: athletes that transition. That’s my goal. I want similar-type movies. I want to get thrillers. I want to get dramas. I want to do comedies. I want to be the next Rock. I want to do a thriller where I’m like a hero and beat up all the bad guys.”
