The Rock says he is considering running for president
The People's Champion could soon become The People's President
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has hinted at a potential presidential run at some point in the future.
After leaving the WWE, The Rock has enjoyed a hugely successful career in Hollywood. Could he follow in Arnold Schwarzenegger's footsteps by embarking on a career in politics?
The 48-year-old's recent comments would certainly suggest so.
In an interview with USA Today, he said: "I would consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted.
"Truly I mean that, and I'm not flippant in any way with my answer. That would be up to the people.
"So I would wait, and I would listen. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground."
Johnson is the subject of a new sitcom, Young Rock, which looks back at his life so far through a comedic lens.
It is set in 2032, when the older Rock runs for president. His recent comments suggest it isn't that far-fetched an idea.
Back in 2017, The Rock told Ellen Degeneres that he was "seriously considering" running for the highest public office in the United States.
The world's best-paid actor, The Rock publicly backed Joe Biden ahead of the 2020 presidential election. He also said he cried "very manly tears" when Biden won.
In a video posted to Instagram on November 8th, 2020 - the day after Biden was projected winner - The Rock revealed why the success of the Democrat nominee and his running mate Kamala Harris meant so much to him.
"I cried a tear or two... or 10. But they were all very manly. All my tears are manly.
"The reason I got emotional yesterday was because of what I felt my vote represented.
"My vote represented my little girls. It also represented humanity, decency, and the principles and values Lauren my wife and I instil in our little daughters.
"And finally, my vote represented the importance of just being a decent human being. And to me, being a decent human being matters."
Whatever happens, scenes such as this would probably look out of place in the Oval Office.
