'The Rock' Just Took A Huge Step Towards Running For The US Presidency

Rumours have been swirling for sometime that Hollywood actor and WWE legend Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson would seriously consider running for the US Presidency, and those rumours took a surprising twist over the weekend.

A campaign committee titled "Run the Rock 2020" was filed on behalf of the Fast & Furious actor with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Sunday, meaning the official groundwork is laid should he choose to run.

The paperwork was lodged by a man unknown to The Rock, West Virginian Kenton Tilford, who is clearly a fan of the Sexiest Man Alive from 2016.

If The Rock does chose to run in the 2022 presidential election campaign, he already has a catchy slogan attributed to him thanks to Tilford: 'More poise, less noise".

Johnson, not aligned to any political party, previously hinted his at his interest in politics in May.

"I think that it’s a real possibility," The Rock native told GQ.

"A year ago, it started coming up more and more. 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'."

Don't quote us on this, but if successful, The Rock would be the first sitting president to star in a Fast & Furious movie.
