Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson can do just about anything, which means a presidential run is not only possible, it’s something he’s “seriously” considering.

Johnson appeared on Ellen with Kevin Hart to promote their new Jumanji movie and the subject of his potential presidential run came up. It started with a heartfelt endorsement of Johnson by Hart, who earnestly spoke of Johnson’s own heart and the good he could do as president.

“I think the world that we’re living in today, you’re seeing the real effect the genuine people like Dwayne have,” Hart said. “And the one thing about him is he’s very serious when it comes to spreading that love, that laughter and just the up lifting of life in a positive level. And if he were to put himself in that position he would get my support wholeheartedly. Unless it comes to my financial dollar, then we’d have to talk.”

Ellen then actually was thinking about running for president.

“I’m seriously considering it,” Johnson said to uproarious applause.

This isn’t exactly a big update, as he told GQ‘s Caity Weaver he was considering a run in a profile she wrote earlier this year. But it is obvious that he’s really thinking about making the run, not just saying it for fun. We’ll know for sure if his hectic movie schedule eases up or any PAC movement is made on his behalf, but right now it remains very possible that we might see President Rock someday.
