The Rock is reigning over WWE as the WWE Champion heading into Wrestlemania 29 live on Pay Per View on April 7th and storming into theaters with G.I. Joe: Retaliation on March 29th, but it seems a new big movie role is in his sights: Star Wars!
Dwayne Johnson is currently in Australia on a media tour to promote G.I. Joe: Retaliation's international release and has been openly telling the press there that he wants to be in the new Star Wars trilogy being produced Disney and directed by J.J. Abrams.
Rocky has certainly proven he can be winner in the world of entertainment as one of the biggest stars ever in WWE and a successful movie career that has garnered millions at the box office. His larger-than-life charisma and physical presence would certainly add some muscle-bound electricity to the next three films of iconic franchise.
