Dwayne Johnson: I Want Star Wars Role
The Rock says he'll call director JJ Abrams to offer his services...
Dwayne Johnson has declared his interest in a role in the forthcoming WWE star turned Hollywood actor revealed his ambition in an interview with New.co.au, saying: "I played with two lines of action figures when I was a kid, G.I. Joe and Star Wars.
"By the way, because we didn't have a lot of money, I used to steal them. I'd just rip open the packages and shove 'em in my pockets... like a lot of kids. I got caught a couple of times, got my ass kicked by my parents.
"When I got the call saying, 'How do you feel about becoming the leader of the G.I. Joes?' it was like if I got a call from George Lucas saying, 'I want you to be in Star Wars'. I'm gonna call J.J. and you're gonna help by printing it and I'm gonna be in Star Wars'!"
George Lucas recently let slip that the stars of the original films will be returning.
