David Dexter reports that The Rock has said he would like a role in the new Star Wars film. The WWE Champion spoke with Adelaide Now in Australia while promoting G.I. Joe: Retaliation and said he would love to be in the film, which is being directed by J.J. Abrams.
“I played with two lines of action figures when I was a kid: G.I. Joe and Star Wars,” he said. “By the way, because we didn’t have a lot of money, I used to steal them. I’d just rip open the packages and shove ’em in my pockets … like a lot of kids. I got caught a couple of times, got my ass kicked by my parents. So when I got the call saying, ‘How do you feel about becoming the leader of the G.I. Joes?’, it was like if I got a call from George Lucas saying, ‘I want you to be in Star Wars.”
He added, “I’m gonna call J.J. and you’re gonna help by printing it and I’m gonna be in Star Wars!”
