The Rock Reveals Next James Bond Star?

As if entertainment couldn’t get more ridiculous. The man that wrestling fans chanted “die”, says he wants to assume the role of one of the more refined characters in literature. That’s right folks, The Sham, sorry, The Rock, says he wants to play the role of James Bond (lol). Perhaps the overinflated The Rock could play a bumbling bad guy, but a well-groomed intellect… I don’t think so. The Rock played a giant scorpion!

Yahoo Life says: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a big man who does big movies (apparently. They aren’t Gone with the Wind, so I don’t know what their definition of big movies means) In a video in Yahoo Life’s Explain This series, The Rock tossed his name into the ring for consideration to play the next James Bond.

Just because he threw it out there doesn’t mean he’s going to get it. It’s up to the Good Lord Rocky not you.

The video opens with Rocky explaining his family’s connection to the long-running secret agent franchise. “Yes, my grandfather was a Bond villain in You Only Live Twice with Sean Connery. Very, very cool,” he said, referring to actor Peter Maivia, who played a minor villain who fought Connery’s Bond.

Of course his grandfather was in James Bond. That explains his meteoric rise to Hollywood fame. That’s got to be the only reason for it. I can’t see any other reason why he would be offered so many roles.

Miavia continued, admitting that he’s a fan of the franchise—but is setting his sights high. “I would like to follow in his footsteps and be the next Bond,” he said. “I don’t want to be a villain. Gotta be Bond.”

I doubt highly that’s going to happen. Keep on wishing Rocky. Keep on wishing.
