Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's doppelgänger appeared on Today Extra this morning to discuss what it's like to resemble the action star.
Patrol Lieutenant Eric Fields became a viral sensation last week when a photo of him looking just like the former wrestler did the rounds on social media.
Fields — a law enforcement officer in Morgan County, Alabama — has since found himself trending online, much to his surprise.
"It's been good, it's been a lot of positive contacts with the public," he said on the program. "Usually, when we show up, it's not anything good. Now I get a lot of good positive contact with the public so we can better unite as a community, and that's a good thing. It's been fun, though."https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FMorganSheriffOffice%2Fposts%2F4241522865925231&show_text=true&width=500
Fields also told hosts David Campbell and Belinda Russell he has long been a fan of Johnson and his movies.
"I like what does and he seems to be a positive kind of guy," he said.

The original post has also caught the attention of Johnson himself, with the star weighing in on their uncanny resemblance.
"Oh s--t! Wow. Guy on the left is way cooler," the actor referenced Fields as he reposted the image. "Stay safe brother and thank you for your service. One day we'll drink @Teremana and I need to hear all your 'Rock stories' because I KNOW you got 'em."
