A US police officer bearing a resemblance to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has left the internet and even the star himself speechless. A few days ago, photos of Johnson’s lookalike emerged on social media, with outlets identifying the officer as Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Lieutenant Eric Fields of Alabama.
Dwayne Johnson is both shocked and impressed by the uncanny resemblance to a lookalike from Alabama.

Johnson reposted a side-by-side photo of himself and Eric, which has gone viral with over 15K likes. In the pic, the bald men both flashed a smile in aviator sunglasses. He wrote that the pictured cop was way cooler than himself and urged the officer to stay safe.

One day we’ll drink @Teremana, and I need to hear all your ‘Rock stories’ because I KNOW you got ‘em.” In response, Eric wrote: “@TheRock Thanks brother & cheers @Teremana.”
Johnson hopes to have a drink with Eric (pictured below) at @Teremana and can't wait to hear all of his "Rock stories."
EricFieldsLEO -ViaLieutenant Fields has been a law enforcement officer for 17years in Morgan County. He worked with at-risk children and in the special victims’ unit before being a Deputy US Marshal. Afterward, he was promoted to a corporal, a sergeant, and a lieutenant working as the tactical and firearms training instructor. Yes, Eric has a hunky appearance, but he’s reportedly humble at heart and has repeatedly reiterated he isn’t trying to be someone he’s not.
Eric, a 17-year veteran of the sheriff's office, reportedly said this isn't the first time people have said he looks like the movie star.
MorganSheriffOffice via FacebookThe lookalike situation first hit the internet when a Facebook Post from the MCSO revealed how a local man asked another law enforcement officer to meet with the deputy that people say looks like ‘The Rock.’ 37-Year-Old Eric was touched with the request and stopped by Hartselle Walmart for the meet and greet.
However, the lookalike situation originally emerged via a Facebook post from the MCSO (below).
Eric is no stranger to hearing that he looks so much like the movie star. In an interview with AL.com, he said: “I’ve been called The Rock and Vin Diesel’s love child. I go along with it. It’s humorous; it’s flattering. It could be worse people, I guess. I plan on being me. I’ll cut up. I’m a big cut-up. If it comes up and somebody says that, I’ll play along. I really couldn’t be anybody but me. I’m just glad I could be part of someone’s happiness and laughter.”
