Dwayne Johnson is a man of many talents.

While Johnson has spoken about the subject in various interviews, during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night he explained that he has no desire to potentially go up against current U.S. President Donald Trump in 2020 and that he would only be serious about entering politics if he could commit "110%".

"I'm not in that one", Johnson told SyFyWire. They also traded People's Eyebrows before Johnson serenaded everyone with a Samoan song. He is totally open to running for president sometime in the future!

Short review: We all know how the movie is going to end but its the bits in the middle that surprise you that actually make this different from your generic Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson blockbuster. Even if he didn't at first, the former wrestler realized there may be something there based on the tremendous fan support behind the idea.

Scientists trace the origin of high-energy cosmic radiation
Scientists first started theorizing about neutrinos in the 1930s , and by 1956 , they confirmed their existence. Lower-energy neutrinos, for example, are produced prolifically in the fusion processes of stars like our sun.

"I absolutely do, yes", Johnson said as the crowd began cheering loudly to his response. But at the same time, I'm not delusional at all, like I need experience.

The audience erupted in cheers, clearly appreciating an aspiring politician expressing desire to get some kind of experience in public office before trying to lead the entire country. With Shazam! hitting theaters next year, the character's popularity will start to grow and it's likely he'll receive a new comic book series soon, so you might as well start learning everything you can about the character now. "So if [the election] were to happen in a 2024, 2028, I would have to go to work and get some experience, you know, and understand policy", he adds.

Johnson then took a shot of tequila with Colbert while looking him right in the eye. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on CBS!
