We all thought Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was just kidding when he announced that he was gunning for the most powerful government position in the world. Now, it seems like this joke is slowly turning into reality.
Last May, the WWE wrestler-turned-actor said in jest that he was running for president of the United States with fellow actor Tom Hanks as his running mate. He revealed this during the finale of Saturday Night Live season 42.
But fast-forward to July, Johnson’s name has officially been filed with the Federal Election Commission by a certain Kenton Tilford under the campaign committee called “Run the Rock 2020."
Tilford’s relation with the action movie star hasn’t been established yet, but Johnson has stated in various interviews that he was open to the possibility of flexing his muscles as the POTUS.
Well, The Rock has a few more years of cooking to do before he finally decides on whether he'll run for the US presidential elections scheduled in November 2020.
