Grand Rapids native guest with ‘Young Rock’


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A Grand Rapids native best known for his voiceover talent will guest star on “Young Rock.”

The show chronicles the life of Dwayne Johnson. Kiff VandenHeuvel plays WWE Hall of Famer Pat Patterson, who was a father figure to Johnson.

VandenHeuvel, who was a big wrestling fan growing up, said it was an honor to play the role.

VandenHeuvel grew up in Cutlerville, where her grandfather was a pastor at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services and also had a radio show. VandenHeuvel said he performed in the studio and learned how to use the recording equipment, which he says gave him a leg up in the voiceover industry.

“Young Rock” airs on NBC Tuesdays at 8 p.m. It has been renewed for a third season.
