Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Wants A Role In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII
He's the WWE champion AND the world's biggest action star, but Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson now has his sights firmly set on a role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII! Hit the jump to read his comments on the possibility of making that a reality.
Dwayne Johnson has become one of the biggest action stars in Hollywood since putting his wrestling career on hold, although he has still somehow managed to find time to return to the WWE in order to become the current world champion. However, for some reason, we have yet to see the artist formally (and sort of currently) known as The Rock in a major superhero or sci-fi movie. As it turns out, he's a big fan. "I played with two lines of action figures when I was a kid, 'G.I. Joe' and 'Star Wars'," the actor and wrestler told News.Com.AU while promoting G.I. Joe: Retaliation. "By the way, because we didn't have a lot of money, I used to steal them. I'd just rip open the packages and shove 'em in my pockets ... like a lot of kids. I got caught a couple of times, got my ass kicked by my parents." This led to the actor to touch upon how it felt to be asked to join the cast of the new G.I. Joe movie, and he additionally confirmed that he would be interested in being a part of another franchise he loves; Star Wars. "So when I got the call saying, 'How do you feel about becoming the leader of the G.I. Joes?', it was like if I got a call from George Lucas saying, 'I want you to be in Star Wars'. I'm gonna call J.J. and you're gonna help by printing it and I'm gonna be in 'Star Wars'!" Would you guys like to see Dwayne in the new Star Wars movie?
