In a new interview, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says that he wishes he could have been James Bond, just like his grandfather.
Johnson discussed his interest in becoming a secret agent with Matthew Perry on “The Graham Norton Show” on BBC TV.
“I love James Bond and I could see myself in a role like that,” he said, according to the BBC. “My grandfather played a bad guy in ‘Goldfinger’ in 1967 and that was my father’s and my grandfather’s favorite movie growing up so I loved that. I love those films.”
The 43-year-old actor was also very supportive of his “Goosebumps” director Rob Letterman, who also spoke on the show. Letterman also said that he wanted to do a live action version of “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” but Johnson said he was too busy to be the voice of the fox.
“But I would totally do this,” he said, looking at Letterman. “If we could use stunt double doggies and join the montage.”
But Johnson thinks he would make a great actor.
“I admire all of the James Bonds because they all have kind of different qualities and characters to them,” he said. “I’m not saying I’m 007, no. But I’m there.”
