Will Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Run for President in 2020?

When Johnson maintained he "can't say", Colbert seemed even more certain. And then Colbert switched gears to Johnson's 2011 tweet about Osama Bin Laden's death, which he knew about an hour before the rest of the American public. The Rock Tweeted out "Just got word that will shock the world - Land of the free... home of the courageous DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!" He was told that President Obama was going to make the announcement in 30 seconds, but then his announcement was delayed by an hour.

Johnson said he was told about the announcement by someone close to the situation, although he wouldn't reveal who it was.

Johnson also said that he's serious about running for office someday, but maybe in 2024 or 2028.

Dwayne Johnson would need more "experience" and a better understanding of "policy" before making a serious bid for the USA presidency.

Johnson went on to explain how the idea began when the Washington Post wrote a story, suggesting if he ran for POTUS, he would stand a good chance of winning.

The former WWE star also shared a shot of Tequila with Colbert on the show while the pair raised their eyebrows, sang a Samoan song and discussed his family's legacy in professional wrestling. "Of course, I would". Last night on The Late Show, Johnson came on as a guest to speak to Stephen Colbert for the very first time.

"At the same time, I'm not delusional at all. So if that were to happen in 2024 or 2028, I'd have to go to work and get that experience", Johnson explained.

"It means, 'Answer me, oh my love, just what it is that I am guilty of, '" he said of the tune, adding: "I will say I have never looked a man directly in the eye when I sang that".

At the end of the chat, Colbert asked Johnson about his Samoan heritage and his singing skills in animated Disney film Moana.
