Jason Momoa is just as keen to make a movie with Dwayne Johnson as we are to watch it.
The Aquaman star got candid about his mission to create a project with his fellow actor during his appearance on Thursday’s Tonight Show.
Speaking to Jimmy Fallon about the pair’s long-running friendship as the 41-year-old explained the pair first met through a mutual friend.
‘I met him almost 20 years ago in Hawaii,’ he explained, added: ‘We’ve tried to get together and make a movie together, just he’s way busier than I am and I’m pretty busy right now. One of these days.’
He joked Johnson owned him a film as a favor for sending a birthday message to the former wrestler’s three-year-old daughter Tia Giana in April.
Johnson reached out for Momoa to film the clip after his little one hilariously said she preferred Aquaman when asked who was cooler him or daddy.
Johnson – who will play DC superhero Black Adam on the big screen next summer – basically won the dad of the year award when Tia was left visibly giddy when she received her special birthday message.
‘All of us can get together and play, maybe rock climb, go surfing,’ Momoa smiled in the clip. ‘I just wanted to say that I’m sorry I couldn’t be there but I love you. Tell your poppa that I love him too. I will see you soon, OK? Happy third birthday.’
The message was greeted with huge cheers, and Johnson seemed happy with the way things turned out.
He captioned the adorable clip: ‘I had to make the call…it’s what daddy’s do… I can’t thank my brother @prideofgypsies enough for making this adoring 3yr old’s birthday the best EVER. Her reaction is priceless and what it’s all about.
‘I love you back, uso and this kind of stuff will ALWAYS be the best part of our fame.
‘You epitomize one of my favorite quotes, “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice”. Thanks for having my back – I’ll always have yours. (sic)’
