Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Talks STAR WARS, JAMES BOND And THE EXPENDABLES 3
Talking at the London premiere for G.I. Joe: Retaliation earlier tonight, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has reiterated what he said at today's press conference about possibly starring in the next Star Wars or Expendables instalments, while also sharing his thoughts on playing a Bond bad guy!
"Am I interested? Absolutely," Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson told Hey U Guys at the UK premiere of G.I. Joe: Retaliation earlier this evening when asked about those recent rumblings that he's after a role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. "Who would I like to play? Well...that would be up to J.J.! I love how this whole story by the way has morphed into this reality that I'm gonna be in Star Wars! I love J.J., I'm a big, big fan of Star Wars and he is gonna be awesome directing it." When the site put it to him that he would be a good choice to take on a role in the next Bond, he said: "Skyfall is one of the greatest action movies of all-time to be in. Loved Daniel Craig. Would love to be a Bond baddie for sure! You know, my grandfather was in 'You Only Live Twice'. He was a Bond baddie." Finally, it sounds as if Johnson isn't as interested in a role in The Expendables 3 as we initially thought. "Expendables 3? They're not ready for me! They're not ready for this ass kickin'!" Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this in the usual place!
