Subscribe To SNL: The Rock Reveals His Choice For VP, And We Co-Sign Updates

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hosted the Season 42 finale of Saturday Night Live last night, and while there were plenty of laughs to be had, he had to get serious to put something to rest. The actor addressed rumors and speculation that he would seek the Presidency in the year 2020 after a poll surfaced saying more Americans would vote for him over current President Donald Trump. Johnson "confirmed" the rumor, and announced his choice for Vice President, and we definitely co-sign. See The Rock's choice beginning at 1:50 in the video and continue on below:

I'm going to be honest, I'm pretty sure an election ticket with Dwayne Johnson and Tom Hanks would break voting records. The most electric man in sports entertainment and highest paid actor in Hollywood alongside an acting legend with a handful of Oscars and roles as iconic as Forrest Gump and David S. Pumpkins? No one in politics would stand a chance against those two. Of course, I'm sure both actors are doing this Saturday Night Live monologue all tongue in cheek, but they did leave it ambiguous enough at the end that you have to wonder if Johnson is at all serious about running for some form of political office. Perhaps I'm just all too excited at the prospect of attending a debate or town hall in a WWE shirt with an "Austin 3:16" sign.

Maybe that's what makes the Saturday Night Live monologue so amazing. You go from "he's serious" to "he's joking" and with the way they end it, you really don't know where they landed. I guess if I were Dwayne Johnson and was looking at that theoretical election after just watching the last one, I would seriously consider running for office as well. While I'm not too sure what qualifications Johnson or Tom Hanks have that would make them viable candidates, they would far and away be the two most charismatic duo Washington has ever seen! It sounds like a joke announcement now, but let's not forget guys like Al Franken cut their teeth on Saturday Night Live before moving on to a successful career in politics.

So will 2020's Presidential ticket see Dwayne Johnson and Tom Hanks on it? Probably not, but anything is possible. With Saturday Night Live officially in the offseason, you're probably searching for some new shows to fill your time with so head over to our list of premieres here.
