When asked whether he was serious about considering a presidential run, Rock said (per Wrestling Inc), "I absolutely do, yes".

I really do think that Dwayne Johnson was the flawless actor to cast for the role and am excited to see the him step into the superhero world.

The Rock has also recently stated that he would love to return in a WWE ring at some point in the near future two years after his last match. But at the same time, I'm not delusional at all, like I need experience.

"I know you're not particularly a political person but people have talked to you about whether you would run for political office yourself because people love a victor, you seem like a victor and you exude great confidence".

"That whole thing with Tyrese, it was pretty disappointing because I'd been friends with Tyrese for a very long time", he continued.

The co-pilot aboard a domestic Air China flight from Hong Kong to Dalian on Tuesday plummeted 25,000 feet in 10 minutes. Once the pilots saw the air conditioning was off, they turned it back on and regained altitude.

Colbert brought up a tweet Johnson sent out an hour before it was announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed. Colbert wanted to know how.

"I'm not in that one", Johnson told SyFyWire. Not only have they not spoken, but Johnson said "there's no need to have a conversation". (In case you missed it, Johnson weighed in on Twitter with an emphatic "both," depending on the situation.) But in the interview, Johnson gave a new answer that reveals what made him the best choice to star in an action movie that is both heartfelt and heart-stopping.

Johnson added, "I will say I have never looked a man directly in the eye when I sang that".

When The Rock's Samoan heritage came up, Colbert asked the actor to "do a little singing" with a Samoan song, and even broke out shots of tequila to warm the performer's vocal chords up.
