  • Neve Campbell and Dwayne Johnson in “Skyscraper.”

Dwayne Johnson is a man of many talents.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS.

During the interview, host Colbert noted that Johnson must have friends in high places in the White House and referred to a cryptic tweet he had posted in 2011 shortly before U.S. President Barack Obama announced that terrorist Osama bin Laden had been killed. "Just got word that will shock the world - Land of the free. home of the courageous DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!" was the social media message The Rock posted foreshadowing then-President Barack Obama's announcement.

"If that were to happen in 2024, 2028, I would have to go to work and get some experience, you know, and understand policy", says Johnson in the clip above.

Dwayne Johnson appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday where the actor discussed how serious he was about running for president. "Just to put it into context, the Washington Post posted a story and the gist of it was if I did run I would have a legitimate shot at winning". The Skyscraper star said he is now lacking the experience needed to do the job which he would need to learn before making a leap into politics. "It kind of picked up steam and when it picked up steam, the American public thought, 'That's a great idea.' So when that started picking up, of course when I'm asked, yes, I have incredible respect for our people and our country, so I would consider it". Of course, I would.

"But at the same time, Stephen, I mean look, I'm not delusional at all". You know I need that thing ... oh yes ... experience.

Johnson then took a shot of tequila with Colbert while looking him right in the eye.

At the end of the chat, Colbert asked Johnson about his Samoan heritage and his singing skills in animated Disney film Moana.
