Share on Facebook

Dwayne Johnson’s latest remarks have not only left fans shaken, but also stirred up a lot of mixed emotions…

There have been numerous names circulating online as to who might be the next James Bond…

And with Daniel Craig now officially stepping down as 007, Dwayne Johnson has spoken out as to why he’d make the perfect replacement…

Now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the most recognizable celebrities in the world.

With his staggering 6 ft 5 inches, 260 lbs frame, he’d be pretty hard to miss – but it’s his expressive face (and infamous eyebrows) that really set him apart from the rest.

He started out in the world of WWE, where he became one of the greatest wrestlers of all time…

This is where Johnson first earned his nickname “The Rock” – thanks to his ring presence.

However, he decided to try his hand at acting, knowing there was limited longevity in wrestling…

Johnson successfully transitioned his career into this sphere and is now as well known as an actor as he was as a wrestler, which is pretty impressive.

And when it comes to Johnson, we can’t pass up the opportunity to share this picture…

This brilliant image of him wearing a turtleneck, gold chain, and, inexplicably, a fanny pack, is a particular highlight that the internet loves to bring up.

Since starting his acting endevor, Johnson has been in a whole host of different titles…

Johnson is probably most famous for his performances in the Fast and Furious movies. He plays Luke Hobbs, an intimidating special agent and self-described “ice cold can of whoopass.”

He even made it to Disney…

Johnson voiced the demigod Maui in the huge Disney hit Moana – complete with an amazing song and rap which sent the internet into hysterics.

But we’ll always know him as The Rock, no matter what he decides to take on…

He’s one of the most famous wrestlers of all time and has numerous titles and awards. Despite technically retiring from wrestling in 2004, The Rock still makes public appearances from time to time.

So it’s safe to say Johnson has built an enviable career for himself.

Transitioning from one niche area and building an enormous Hollywood career out of it is no mean feat – it’s clear Johnson is a savvy businessman.

And just a genuinely nice guy…

For a long time, many have cited Johnson as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood for countless reasons:

The first being, he’s a great dad!

Despite having a busy schedule, he is always spending as much time as he can with his three girls.

Then, he’s always been great to his fans.

Frequently posting about meeting them on his social media.

And of course, one of thing that always melts peoples hearts…

He takes care of his mom.

He just seems like an all-round good guy.

And now it looks like he wants to take his acting career to the next level…

By diving into the James Bond franchise…

And a lot of fans of the very British movies are totally against Johnson donning a tuxedo as 007…

That’s right, Johnson fancies himself as the next man with the golden gun…

And as Daniel Craig has officially stepped down from the role, there is a space needing to be filled.

And Johnson has shared that he feels he’d be perfect for the role as the British MI6 agent during a recent interview.

He also revealed in the interview with Esquire that his grandfather Peter Maivia played a villainous henchman in You Only Live Twice, back in 1967.

“Yes, my grandfather was a Bond villain in You Only Live Twice with Sean Connery. Very, very cool,” he said.

He added: “I would like to follow in his footsteps and be the next Bond. I don’t want to be a villain. Gotta be Bond.”

Franchise producer Barbara Broccoli stated in an interview with BBC Radio 4 that casting for the next James Bond will start at the beginning of next year…
