Johnson stars alongside Ride Along actor, Kevin Hart, in the action comedy about a bullied, chubby high-schooler turned ripped CIA agent. In the film, Johnson seeks out Hart's help during a CIA mission after Hart stuck up for Johnson in high school, 20 years earlier.

Johnson is also starring as a chiseled lifesaver in the upcoming movie reboot of the TV show Bay Watch.

Central Intelligence is set for release in the US this July. However, a New Zealand release date is yet to be announced.
