The Rock Considering Presidential Run In 2024

on

Back in May, The Rock spoke with GQ Magazine about the continued buzz around him making a run for President of the United States. “I think that it’s a real possibility,” admitting that he’s given a run a lot of thought since last year.

“A year ago it started coming up more and more,” Rock said. “There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, ‘Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.’ I didn’t want to be flippant—’We’ll have three days off for a weekend! No taxes!'”

Today, Variety published an article talking with The Rock about if this is still something he’s considering, and it sounds like he is, in 2024.

“I couldn’t do both.” Rock said. “Realistically, as we go into 2018, when you look at my slate as we’re developing and shooting into 2019 and 2020, the slate goes deep into 2021, so it feels like the realistic consideration would be 2024.”

While Rock has attended both Republican and Democratic conventions, he’s currently registered as an Independent.

“I care deeply about our country, and I care deeply about our people – especially now,” Rock said. “Decency matters and being a decent human being matters, and character matters, and leadership matters.” (H/t WrestlingInc).
