tbt. Asia world press tour.
I love how serious my press friend got when she thought I wasn’t giving the ukulele back 🤣. Press tours are hard work for everyone involved - journalists, studios, teams etc, so I always try to keep my energy up, have fun and keep it light.
Get ready Asia - for our upcoming RAMPAGE and SKYSCRAPER 2018 press tours, I’m coming back.
Get the guitar and tequila ready... and next time I’m keeping both. 🎸 🥃


345am. Man on the run.
Day 47 of 64 shooting our action thriller #SkyscraperMovie.
Shot big sequences tonight requiring lots of moving parts. THANK YOU to the hundreds of extras putting in the hard work.
Fear and terror are never fun emotions to play with - especially for 10hrs straight.
Thanks again and great work.
And I apologize in advance for all the extras I push and shove down the rest of the week shooting these scenes as I’m on the run. Please buy yourselves a bottle of your favorite and most expensive alcohol and send the bill to Universal Studios.
#OnSet #OnTheRun #HongKong #SkyscraperMovie


Hangin around.
Put in some good hard work, but a pleasure shooting what will become multiple posters around the world for #SkyscraperMovie.
THANK YOU to everyone involved making this shoot “fit in” with my already incomprehensible aka nutty schedule.
Grateful to have such a team of talented rockstars making it all happen.

This vid was just texted and had to share. Luv this. I’m fired up!
I realized early in my career that if I had a shot at becoming successful in our business, I had to make sure I surrounded myself with hungry, hard working and brilliant people who, like me, has one goal in mind — create awesome experiences for the movie going audience around the world.
While I’m up here in Vancouver shooting a movie, our worldwide #JUMANJI team is hard at work strategizing to deliver something exciting this Christmas for the fans.
A personal thank you to my hard working, talented partners who I can tell aren’t crazy about being on camera 🎥 🤣

Middle East
Big shout to my good bud, Josh Greenstein (President of Marketing and Distribution for SONY) for texting me this vid and galvanizing our our worldwide team.
Audiences are loving the movie in early screenings and think we made something fun, cool and heartfelt. Think BREAKFAST CLUB meets BIG... led by the big, brown, bald, tattooed guy who cusses occasionally and gets in trouble but that’s ok because his name is Dwanta Claus 🎅🏾. #HardAtWork #HomeTeam #JUMANJI #Worldwide


How’n the hell is a man expected to get any work done on his job site.
Ok, one “hi” and then I’m out.
This disturbing me while I work is a bunch of horseshit!

Truth is it’s 2am, they’ve been waiting for hours and I’m a lucky SOB to have the greatest fans in the 🌎#SkyscraperMovie #grateful 🤙🏾


Like Da Vinci’s, Mona Lisa, my art is priceless and yes, I am an uncivilized artistic genius.
1) No, I will not make Moo Cow’s teets any bigger, because that’s inappropriate.
2) The bad ass “Wolf Is Always Scratching” #USDNA @underarmour long sleeve drops Nov 9th (Veterans Day weekend) from #ProjectRock. 🐮🐺🇺🇸


THANK YOU, Mayor Linda Hepner and her entire staff for the warm “We ❤️ DJ” welcome to your city.
And thank you, British Columbia/Canada for welcoming me like a son.
On a personal growth note, years ago this province served as catalyst for a defining time in my life when I was cut from the CFL and my dreams of eventually making it to the NFL were over. I didn’t understand the value of it then, but I certainly do today - making the CFL/NFL was the best thing that never happened.
Remember that when life kicks our asses and crushes our plans. Have faith because sometimes that goal might be the best thing that never happened.
Now where the hell is my tough guy macchiato pumpkin spice latte?

😂⛓ It’s hurtin’ my neck.
Every generation or so, two dudes will just “click” with must see, on screen chemistry.
In 6 weeks me and my twin @kevinhart4real along with @jackblack, @karengillanofficial and @nickjonas go on a global press tour to promote #JUMANJI
As per yoosh, we will have ZERO fun.

AM sweat equity and takin’ care of the machine.
Im always asked how I “manage and balance” the stresses of life?
My answer is I make it a point to protect the thing that allows me to do what I do. That “thing” is my machine - mind and body. I block out three hours every morning before I go into work and before my entire household gets up. It’s my critical alone time that allows me to mediate, clear the stresses, train hard and anchor my day.
We’re all looking to improve our management skills and find that all important balance of our busy lives.
Family, our jobs, raising our babies, payin’ the bills, school, relationships, the world pullin’ you a million different directions etc.
We all go thru the same complex shit, just different degrees of volume and intensity on a daily basis.
Take care of and protect your machine and find your anchor.
Because at the end of the day, regardless of how many people, businesses, co-workers, friends, advisors, teammates or loved ones you may have in your life - no one knows your machine and what it needs better than you.
No one.
Well, I actually know your machine better than you do, but I don’t count because I’m a Jedi Master.
Headphones on. World goes away. #OurMachine


Day 42 of 64 shooting our action thriller #SkyscraperMovie.
I prepped for an intense shoot daily based off the material, but this “battered down” mindset has served me in ways I never expected, professionally and especially personally.
Universe has a helluva sense of humor that way.
Now I need a shot or three of my tequila. 🥃

Good karma and pickle dicks. I mean pickle dick. Singular.
2am and going strong with my 2nd Unit Director, JJ Perry who’s one of the best in the business and a long time collaborator of mine over the years to execute cool & bad ass action sequences in my films.
He’s also the only man I know who can use the words Dali Lama, good karma and pickle dick in the same paragraph and get me motivated as hell to shoot it.
Luv this dude. Crazy & brilliant. The way I like em.
#2am #AdrenalineKicksIn #SkyscraperMovie


Giddy up.
Puttin’ in the hard work on a sexy Friday night with my 2nd Unit crew on our #SkyscraperMovie.
In our world, 2nd unit directors and crews are rockstars who get down and dirty with one goal in mind - gettin’ shit done.
2nd Unit director JJ Perry gettin’ us fired up.

Writer: Hey DJ here’s the script but say it in your own words.
DJ: Sure thing my friend 🖕🏾
Had a blast being the musical Executive Producer for The #WWE2K18 Deluxe Edition by @WWEGames is available NOW on @AppleMusic.
This soundtrack I’ve curated are tracks taken directly from my #IronParadise workout playlist.
WARNING: when you listen, you may want to run thru a f*cking brick wall, so listen at your own risk because my tracks are like a runaway locomotive riding dirty in your ear canals.
That’s a tad extreme, but I am what I am. Enjoy.. ✊🏾


A few months back we invited our digital journalist buds out to Hawaii to the set of JUMANJI for a little visit. We told them “You’re going to meet the big, bald, brown tattooed star of the film and experience the adventures of the Hawaiian jungle first hand.” We clearly delivered on our promise. Mahalo guys for hanging with us on set. Always fun and stay cool. The haters may say this is photoshopped, but who likes assholes anyway? Not us. Aloha! 🤙🏾

Tough job, but hell someone’s gotta do it.
Driving in my truck to work and stopped at a red light as kids were walking to school. * you kids don’t be like Uncle DJ and study hard in school or I’ll turn this truck around dammit. 👊🏾


Daddy’s gotta go back to work ~ Hobbs.
Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neal Moritz.
Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans.
I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool.
I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans.
Smart business.
Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum.

Stay strong Judy, you sexy tiger. We’re all sending you and your family love and light during this time and I’m an extremely grateful man this email reached my eyes.
* this kind of stuff will always be the best part of fame. Thx U Universe 🌎


Big dogs eat.
As many of you know, it ain’t a size or gender’s a mentality thing.
Shout to all my big dogs around the 🌎 as we’re over here quietly on our weekend grind earning sweat equity.
Because at the end of the day, we’re always willing to put in the raw hard work for the one thing we relentlessly chase daily - the results.
Heavy ass chains around your neck are always optional.
Have a hungry and productive week 🤙🏾#HardestWorkersInTheRoom #BigDogsEat


Battered and bloodied.
Shooting day 39 of 64 on our action thriller #SkyscraperMovie.
I may be the one who looks like nine kinds of hell, but we all make the movie and live the story - as a team.
Waiting between takes with my good bud and one of the best camera operators on the planet, Colin Anderson. From STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS to ARGO, he’s an award winning operator with the perfect demeanor for the grit and intensity our movie is.
Plus, we have a great shorthand since we shot HERCULES together in Budapest for months. Colin knows exactly how to shoot my “good side” which is generally the back of my head.

💫 ❤️Just wanted to shine some light on this incredibly strong and beautiful 15yr old girl, Cheyanna.
She was supposed to be my special guest on the set of #SkyscraperMovie for our big MAKE A WISH DAY in a few weeks with 10 other kids/teens and their families.
Cheyanna’s cancer has relapsed and instead she’ll be going to St Jude’s Hospital in Memphis for treatment.
Sending so much love, light, support, positive energy and strength her way.
Im moved and humbled her wish was to meet me. She says if she had one super power, she would be Bat Girl... the irony is, Cheyanna’s already blessed with super powers.. and way more stronger than I’ll ever be.
Stay strong Cheyanna and keep smiling. We’re all pulling for you!
Love, DJ


Calm before the chaos and minutes away from doing the unthinkable.. which is way more fun than the thinkable. Ps, good ol’ Kentucky chrome (duct tape) fixes everything.
#BarelySurviving #SkyscraperMovie


Shut production down for a few minutes so my good buddy, Dr. Lim could administer a tetanus shot and inspect my gash aka DJ boo boo.
Not sure if he was more weirded out when I said, I actually love making things bleed or when I asked for a tequila flavored lollipop for my pain.

Night night.
The glaze you see over my eyes as Im about to pass out is real. As is how deep this rear naked choke is sunk in by @UFC veteran turned actor/stuntman @jasonwilliamday

In our action thriller #SkyscraperMovie I barely survive everything that’s thrown my way. Including this fight. First take when Jason slapped this rear naked on me, I knew right away, holy shit, this brother is sinking it in.
I thought fuck it, the more real the better, it’ll be great for the movie. After every take Jason would always ask if everything was ok with the choke. I said everything was great.
Our director, Rawson Thurber called me and Jason over to the monitor to watch playback of the scene. Rawson and Jason were happy and felt we got it, but I said, let’s take one more crack at this.
Before I walked away I whispered to Rawson, I’m gonna let him hold the choke longer, just keep shooting.
After the take was done and I got my senses back and SLOWLY got up, me and Jason hugged like grateful gentlemen. He’s a real class act and bad ass. A pleasure getting my hands dirty with a real fighter.
#BarelySurviving #SkyscraperMovie


Ain’t got time to bleed.
Fun pain walkin’ full speed into a sharp corner cuttin’ you so good it gets split & peeled back to the tasty white meat.


Stay strong.
Gotta hug, luv and protect ‘em that much more.


A good time shooting @instylemagazine’s MAN OF STYLE. Thank you so much to everyone’s effort in making the shoot a success.
Style and sexy isn’t a “thing” you try and do. It’s a mindset.
Don’t try.. just be.
Then randomly point at shit while seemingly in highly intellectualized thought.

Clockin’ out at 4:15am. Long day/night and super fatigued. Luckiest SOB around having fans waiting in the rain to meet. #GratefulMan #Toodaloo


Just keep your feet movin’
3:30am and still going strong with my director, Rawson Thurber, our hard working crew with ol’ blue eyes himself, Frank Sinatra playin’ in the background. Big daddy could use a drink.. or three. #LongNights #PreWorkoutKickingIn #SkyscraperMovie
