On the new show Ballers, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays a retired NFL player who’s now making a killing as a financial manager to pro athletes. When not making money and deals, he’s with his lady friend Stephanie Michaels, an ESPN sideline reporter.
Michaels is portrayed by Taylor Cole. The former fashion model is best known for her roles in The Glades (Jennifer), CSI: Miami (Samantha Owens), and Heroes (Rachel Mills). She was also in that crazy Lifetime movie Bad Blood. Ballers airs Sundays at 10pm on HBO, after True Detective.
