After the jump, you can check out an interview with Dwayne Johnson about his role in the upcoming family film Tooth Fairy. In it, he discusses what his vision of the Tooth Fairy was when he was a child, comparing that to the film's vision, what was the "exchange rate" for teeth when he was a child, wearing a tutu, his belief in the project and script, the message behind the film, and what his favorite Tooth Fairy gadget is. Footage provided by 20th Century Fox.
"The Tooth Fairy," also known as Derek Thompson, is a hard-charging hockey player whose nickname comes from his habit of separating opposing players from their bicuspids. When Derek discourages a youngster's dreams, he's sentenced to one week's hard labor as a real tooth fairy, complete with the requisite tutu, wings and magic wand. At first, Derek "can't handle the tooth" - bumbling and stumbling as he tries to furtively wing his way through strangers' homes-doing what tooth fairies do. But as Derek slowly adapts to his new position, he begins to rediscover his own forgotten dreams.
Tooth Fairy was directed by Michael Lembeck and stars Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd, Stephen Merchant, Ryan Sheckler, and Seth MacFarlane.
The movie flies into theaters this coming Friday, January 22nd.
