Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is still open to diving into politics.

During a 2017 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the star said that he was “seriously considering” a run for president.

Nowadays, he’s further alluding to a possible run with his new sitcom “Young Rock,” which chronicles his younger years.

According to USA Today, each episode of the show features the star in mock interviews during a 2032 run for office.

Despite having years’ worth of projects lined up in Hollywood, the star still hasn’t ruled out one day vying for the Oval Office.

“I would consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted,” he told the outlet. “Truly I mean that, and I’m not flippant in any way with my answer. That would be up to the people… So I would wait, and I would listen.”

He further explained: “I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground.”

The 48-year-old actor isn’t known for speaking about politics often but broke his own protocol last year to endorse Joe Biden for president in his first public backing of a candidate.
