Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kevin Hart have always been an odd couple of sorts. The fact that they're both actors is about their only commonality. Johnson is a former football player and wrestler who looks like he could fight a tiger. Hart is short in stature, though he makes up for it with a hearty laugh. The other thing they share, however, is a sense of humor, which was on full display at the People's Choice Awards.

Funny moment

At the ceremony, Hart was nominated for "Favorite Comedic Movie Actor" for his roles in "Ride Along 2," "Central Intelligence," and "Kevin Hart: What Now?" Zac Efron, Ryan Gosling, and Chris Hemsworth were among the other nominees for the award. So was his "Central Intelligence" co-star, Johnson.

So when Hart won the People's Choice Award, he was bound to take a dig at his former co-star during his acceptance speech.

He came through, jokingly singling out his "Central Intelligence" buddy as the one actor who didn't help him grow -- in fact, he claimed Johnson made him a lesser talent. The former wrestler responded in the most appropriate fashion possible: a one-finger salute in the middle of the speech.

Getting back together?

"Central Intelligence" was the first time Hart and Johnson starred in a movie together and even included a tagline poking fun at their names and sizes.

The action comedy witnessed two highschool friends who took very different paths in life, only to come together to help the CIA stop a terrorist from selling satellite codes. The movie earned a 69% on Rotten Tomatoes, but lost out to "Bad Moms" in the "Favorite Comedic Movie" category of the People's Choice Awards.

It won't be long before we get to see the actors share the silver screen again -- Hart and Johnson are set to star with Jack Black in a remake of the Robin Williams classic "Jumanji." The film will include a tribute to the late actor and may prove to be a bit more humorous than the first take, judging by the cast.

It's set to hit theaters on December 22, 2017 -- just in time for the holidays.
