The Rock For President? Dwayne Johnson Hasn’t Ruled Out Politics

Having made his mark in Hollywood with blockbusters like “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” “Furious 7” and “San Andreas,” Dwayne Johnson admits he’s given thought to future beyond movies and television — one that could involve politics.

Yes, let that sink in for a moment.

Like Ronald Reagan, Clint Eastwood and Jesse Ventura before him, the action star is considering a run for office, although perhaps not anytime soon (sorry, #nevertrump and #neverhillary).

“I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out,” Johnson, who recently began filming “Fast 8,” tells British GQ. “I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring. 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.”

Among those things is undoubtedly an ever-growing slate of films that includes the aforementioned “Fast 8” and its sequels, a potential spinoff starring his Luke Hobbs character, the recently wrapped “Baywatch,” “Shazam,” “Jumanji,” “Doc Savage,” a pair of “Journey” sequels and — well, the 44-year-old Johnson is probably going to be busy through 2020 or so.
