Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson teases presidential run again on "Fallon"

"The surge and the groundswell since then has really been wonderful", he said in the interview (above), citing a national poll "that brought together Republicans and Democrats saying that I would beat Donald Trump if we had an election today to become president".

The 45-year-old Baywatch actor and Jimmy had to say true or false when presented some random facts.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show on Thursday, Johnson told host Jimmy Fallon that he has been astonished and flattered at the public's reaction to a statement he made last week in which he said he would consider running for the president.

President Dwayne Johnson may never actually become a reality, but The Rock isn't quite shutting down the possibility just yet. "I've really been blown away", said the 10-time WWE World Champion.

"I can't deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring", Johnson said.

"This surge and the groundswell since then has really been unbelievable", the wrestler-turned-actor told Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.

However, if you're looking for more hints that The Rock is beginning to seriously consider a presidential run, his comments to Fallon about why people are looking to him as a possible candidate certainly sound like those of a politician.

"More poise; less noise", Johnson added, sounding like a seasoned campaigner already. And I also think that over the years I've become a guy that a lot of people relate to.

"Three-and-a-half years is a long ways away, so we'll see", he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
