In an era when reality TV stars can become presidential candidates, we should expect to see all kinds of Hollywood types throwing their hats into the political ring over the next few years.
And none of them will want to fight the most recent one to do so.
In an interview with GQ UK, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, actor, professional wrestler and all-time great deliverer of one-liners, sounded intrigued by the possibility of politics.
“I can't deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring,” Johnson said. “And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people's lives on a global scale. But there are a lot of other things I want to do first.”
What would The Rock’s presidency look like? Well, he did portray “The Rock Obama” in a Saturday Night Live sketch that one time. Personally, I hope he’s out there Rock Bottom-ing fools like he did with Jason Statham in Furious 7.
[Tears up] That’s my president.
