Action star and former professional wrestler, The Rock (real name Dwayne Johnson), has his eye on the White House. Johnson stated his political aspirations during a radio interview. He sited the success of action-hero turned California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and told listeners that he wouldn’t rule out the possibility that there "there could be another President Johnson in the White House one day." 

Although the comments appear to have been presented in a joking manner, Johnson seems to like the idea of entering politics. When asked is he would follow in Schwarzenegger’s political footsteps he responded, "Possibly, you never know. Maybe one day. Absolutely... I talked to Arnold about that, too." 

Johnson’s previous foray into politics included appearances at the 2000 Democratic and Republican conventions, where he spoke to encourage people to register to vote. 

Johnson was conducting the interview to promote his new action movie, “Walking Tall”, which hits theatres on April 2nd.
