It looks like 2024 might be the most electrifying election of all time.
Dwayne Johnson also known to many as The Rock was one of the biggest WWE superstars of all time. He turned that into the biggest action star of today. Naturally his next step might be the biggest of all. As President of the United States.
During an interview with Variety, Johnson said that would be willing to consider a run for president, in election 2024.
"Realistically, as we go into 2018, when you look at my slate as we’re developing and shooting into 2019 and 2020, the slate goes deep into 2021, so it feels like the realistic consideration would be 2024.”
He later continues.
“It was never something that I trumpeted and beat my chest and ever said publicly, ‘This is what I’m going to do,’ but as that story picked up, Americans picked it up and there was this sentiment of, ‘We’re not joking, and we would really love the idea if you would run,'” he says. "In that, I knew I had to listen to the people and really, really think about it,” Johnson adds. “That’s where I’m at right now — I’m well aware politics is not the business I’m in, so the best thing I can do is continuing to listen and learn as much as I can."
