“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could be entering the jungle of politics.

In an interview with USA Today, Johnson doubled up on the claim that he’s mulling a White House run, saying that he’s eyeing the 2020 presidential election.

Johnson said there are many things to think about in a possible run but says “the consideration is there,” and the reason is simple: To serve the people, and create a better environment for them.”

Johnson wouldn’t reveal the party he would run under, saying he’s currently an independent.

In June 2016, Johnson posted a Washington Post article on Instagram citing his chances if he ran for office.

Interesting piece from The Washington Post on if I ran for POTUS I could actually win. Writer Alyssa Rosenberg did some pretty good research into my background (slave descendants fighting for their freedom, Revolutionary War etc). Much more to uncover but well done. 👍🏾 More and more pieces like this are popping up due to the Presidential election and they're cool/fun to read… I care DEEPLY about our county… and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring. Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country. Thanks again Washington Post. 🇺🇸 💪🏾

The post read, in part, “I care DEEPLY about our country… and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring. Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country.”

So, that leaves the question: “The Rock” 2020?
