Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is thinking about a presidential run, but it would have to wait until his movie career is a bit less hectic.
The actor told Variety that he would “100 percent consider” running for the highest office in the country, saying, “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.”
Johnson has attended conventions for both the Republican and Democratic parties, and he is currently registered as an independent.
While Johnson has no political credentials and has shown some lapses in judgment (ahem, “Tooth Fairy”), his strategy for preparing for office isn’t terrible.
“He says, ‘The best thing I can do is continue to listen and learn as much as I can,’ which is more than you can say for most politicians,” Glenn said. “So maybe ‘The Rock’ is on to something there.”
