The Rock Pushing For A Role In The New Star Wars Movie

starwars

During this week’s media tour of Sydney, Australia to promote “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” WWE Champion told Adelaidenow.com.au that he’s got his got his sights set on a role in the new Star Wars movie.

“I played with two lines of action figures when I was a kid: G.I. Joe and Star Wars,” The Rock 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’.”

George Lucas recently announced that J.J. Abrams (Star Trek, Lost) will be directing the next installment of the Star Wars franchise, due out in 2015. Not one to sit around if there’s something out there he wants – The Rock plans to contact the powers that be to land himself a role in the blockbuster film.

“I’m gonna call J.J. and you’re gonna help by printing it and I’m gonna be in Star Wars!” The Rock said.

    Enjoy your egocentrical, money-maker, not giving a damn about the others and most of all an ass-kisser WWE Champion….. I know I am going to get many dislikes, but this is the truth, if you like it or not….

    • cenasucks

      Yeah you got a dislike from me. Although I agree that as WWE Champion the Rock should be there, you sure as hell can’t say he doesnt give a damn about others. He is an inspiration on so many levels

      • jccox01

        His actions don’t prove it. Never shows up to RAW and he’s the champion, has 4+ million followers on twitter, doesn’t follow a single person, tries to get every and any movie part out there even ones that don’t fit him (this). People should quit praising him so much. He only does all this for the money, everyone talks about him doing stuff for “the people” yet what has he done for you? yeah he shows up in WWE but Cena, Punk, and plenty of others do that and more.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002196281205 Kenneth Anderson Jr.

          I’m pretty sure he’s not doing it for thew money. Rock is the hardest working person in Hollywood, and he deserves everything he’s earned. He does “Make a Wish” Like Cena and the others, WWE just doesn’t hype Rock up like Cena. Rock genuinely cares about his fans and loves to entertain. If you can’t see that you’re blinded by hatred or jealousy. Maybe both.

          • TheKillingMoon

            What a deluded fool you are. Hardest working person in Hollywood my ass.

        • http://www.facebook.com/Orfeaslivesforthemoment ?????? ??????????

          Couldn’t agree more! Thankfully, there are some WWE fans that they are not McMahon puppets ;)

          • cenasucks

            I agree about CM Punk. He’s my favourite superstar however Rock doesn’t deserve the hate he gets. I agree about him not being Champion though. I dont want cena to win neither. ITs time Y2J is champ again.

        You got my answer from @google-7a6b7c05644bc70eb8e9d7822df74cb9:disqus

    • Vince

      The “others”, as you say, should step their game up.

      • thedirtydog

        The “others” should be promoted better. But it’s kind of tough when they hold their heads underwater while the old guys headline.

    • guest

      Aw u still sad that CM Punk ain’t the WWE Champion? Go cry more somewhere else.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Orfeaslivesforthemoment ?????? ??????????

        In a point I am disappointed, but who in the hell is The Rock to demand a WWE title match at the Royal Rumble without participating in matches to receive an opportunity? I know he has “the name” and “the glory” and the WWE can make money with this, I get it! But a part-timer, overrated, ass-kisser, wannabe wrestler doesn’t deserve to receive an opportunity for the prestigious WWE title. Dwayne is a big name to the WWE because of this father and grandfather! If Rock didn’t have their support, he wouldn’t be “the greatest of all time” (sounds to much egocentrical, even HHH doesn’t say this stuff for himself) -period-

        • Stijnosb

      He could always play JAR JARS adopted child..

    IWC 2011:ROCKY PLEASE COME BACK,SAVE THE WWE MAN

    IWC 2013: ROCKY SUCKS,GO BACK TO HOLLYWOOD

    • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

      So true

    • that guy over there

      IWC wanted the rock to come back full time and wrestle on raw shows, but since he isnt on every raw before wrestlemania and he is the WWE champion it pisses some people off

      • Jeff

        I understand,but does that mean he sucks?I’d rather have Rock appear limited rather than have no Rock..

        • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

          BINGO! How’s about … be thankful that one of the biggest movie stars in the world is coming back for the fans (and his mom) – when he sure as hell doesn’t need the money. I’ll take some Rock, some Lesnar and some Undertaker over none – people just lovvve to bitch

    • http://twitter.com/StrayXPunk Orestis

      I said it before i’ll say it again.You being here makes you part of IWC as well doesn’t it?Also what makes you think that only people on the internet wanted the Rock back?I know me and my friends used to chat about that stuff all day.So not only IWC wanted the Rock to come back.Then again If you are pleased with the Rock these days then what can i say…Good for you,that doesn’t mean i can’t be dissapointed about it.Still i know how wrestling works and i move on…

    • Reality

      “Rocky sucks, go back to hollywood” is a minority opinion. It’s more like “get the title off him if he can’t appear on every Raw”.

      • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

        “Back when I was a kid” – we’d see WWF Champion Hulk Hogan once in a blue moon on television .. and you know what? It made each appearance more even special

        • Jeff

          Exactly!,If The Rock was to appear every week then it wouldn’t be special and people would start to get tired.But if he appears limited then it would feel more special.

          • Don

            It isn’t special in any way. Same old boring repetitive Rock.

          • Don

            I’m the real Don you fraud. I’m not a Rock hater like you.

            Star Wars: Episode VII – Battle of the Dons

        • thedirtydog

          Wrestling has changed since then. Things move a lot faster. And wrestling was boring then. Nothing but jobbers getting crushed until a pay-per-view or Saturday Night’s Main Event.

          • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

            Things are much faster these days – which is why it’s good when WWE and TNA make an effort to slow things down a bit, like TNA cutting back to 4 PPV’s a year

        • TheKillingMoon

          Never liked Hogan either. Fuck him.

    • lunchbox87

      i never asked and don’t remember anyone else begging him to come back

      thats cause the InternetWeetardCommunity can never make up their stupid little minds.

      • SolomonGrundy

        LOL so funny IWC thumbing up anti-IWC comments. Like always hating on everything when it comes to wrestling, including themselves.

    • Macc Frost

      jeff you the man lol by the way personal fucc the IWC can’t stand em , i think they talk too fuccin much

      • Vince

        damn right!!

      • Kris Mystery

        You’re part of the IWC !!!!

        • mr meow

          just because he’s on the internet and posting things on a wrestling community site, doesn’t mean he’s part of it!

          OR DOES IT

          • Macc Frost

            thank you i never understood the IWC i started hearing about em when rock came bacc i dont take this wrestling shit seriously compare to the attitude era

        • Macc Frost

          Get the fucc outta here with that statement im too old to be part of some internet bullshit who thinks they know it all why because i commented on here sorry i dont roll like that i got a life my wrestling days are over althought i watch it cuz of rock and brock lesnar once again Fucc the IWC

          • Kris Mystery

            You don’t take it seriously but yet you’ve commented something like 73 times on sescoops alone. That is IWC territory.

          • Macc Frost

            yes i have and you right i shouldn’t take it seriously i won’t comment on here again if thats the case

      • Kris Mystery

        You guys don’t seem to understand… you ARE the IWC!!!! You come to these sites and discuss (or complain about) wrestling all the time… THAT is the IWC!!!

        • Macc Frost

          • Kris Mystery

            Once again…. here you are…. once again.

    • thedirtydog

      I’ve stayed consistant being part of the IWC… Dwayne sucks. Go back to Hollywood. If you want to be a part of the WWE, let the young one’s in the back working their ass off main event and walk with the title.

      • Stijnosb

        first they need to get the talent he has. and they gotta EARN IT. Dwayne did that in the past. little stup*d jabron*

      • http://twitter.com/candylick21 asia carter

        child shut up.and grow up retard.young talent suck they had fucking 8 yrs to work their ass off and be in main event its their fault they hadn’t make it now so stop blaming rock.

    • ddp

      that’s my quote

  • http://www.facebook.com/HershBar Hershey Maxwell Barber

    I feel like The Rock would be the Jar Jar Binks of the new Star Wars.

  • 30yrWrestlingFAN

    So who will the ROCK play Lando’s son?

  • mmmmmmmmmmmmmmretro

    the only thing the rock could be is a badass bounty hunter. other than that no rock shouldn’t be in this movie. looks nothing like jedi or sith. just a huge dude who should make his way in the galaxy by being the successor of boba fett

    • http://www.facebook.com/matthew.mcninch Matthew James McNinch

      ya that would be kickass

  • Astro2700

    Please god no, please no, do not ruin star wars with the no talent Dwayne!

    • thedirtydog

      Star Wars was ruined the last three. Then Disney picked it up. I’m sure Dwayne will fit right in.

    • http://twitter.com/candylick21 asia carter

      you ruin life when you open your mouth, so your last person to say someone don’t got talent your stupid bitch.

  • GMpunk

    Darth Jabronis the new imbalance in the force!

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    If Dwayne gets the role as Luke then Mark Hamill is going to laugh his ass off more than The Joker.

  • Stranger

    The movie will suck anyways so he might as well make it worse.

  • http://www.facebook.com/coty2255 Coty N Knapp

    No.

  • WWEFan4Life

    Oh My God, NO!!! Now the new star wars franchise will forever be known only for a WWE superstar starring in it just like G.I Joe… I hope J.J will say no, but even I know there is no chance in hell of that happening…

  • http://twitter.com/djdennisOU Damien J. Dennis

    I love Star Wars. I love The Rock. But he should in NO way, shape or form be a part of Star Wars. However, I think if he is, the role needs to be right. I am not sure what the screenplay for Star Wars will be, but if they use the Yuuzhan Vong war from the EU, The Rock would make a PERFECT Nom Anor or another of that race.

    He just doesn’t fit in as anything else.

  • http://twitter.com/IAmChrisHerbert Chris Herbert

    As Steve Carrell would say: NOO GOD! NO. GOD. PLEASE. NO. NO!!! NO!!! NOOOOOO!!!!

  • jccox01

    Oh god no… There are limits to your acting. I don’t see a bald muscled up dude being a main role in star wars.

  • Darth

    Alright damn it. You’ve gone too far!

  • http://www.youtube.com/ac1dchr15t ac1d

    WWE would kill to have Star Wars and Disney on their side. But fuck that, Rocky is a horrible actor out of the ring.

    • Don

      You can say that again. He can’t even make a mad face correctly..

      • Don

        What you taking my name for bitch?

    • http://twitter.com/candylick21 asia carter

      haha said who you who never act a day in your fucking life trying jugde someone else BITCH PLEASE fall your wack ass back. and know that rock is the best wrestler turn actor and if he was so horrible he wouldn’t still be getting roles you jackass.

  • Ares

    this would be awesome lol

  • Wrestle4life

    How about Damien Sandow as Obi wan, Cody as Luke, Hornswoggle as R2D2, Big Show as Chewbacka, Vince as vader, Cena as Han Solo, Layla as laya Undertaker as the evil emperor.

      And Mark Henry As Jabba The Hut!

  • http://twitter.com/HoodedBenjamin Benjamin

    Please no. I would rather have Rock as AWOL champ for the next five years than have him in a Star Wars film. It’s problematic enough that more are getting made – adding the guy who can act exactly one and only one part would just make it that much more worrying.

  • zed

    love the photo. But what kind of story will they tell for episode 7? Episode 1 2 3 kinda filled everything up (despite those movies being somewhat bland).

  • Don

    If he’s in it, It will ruin it.. Fuck this guy needs to disappear! Take your shitty acting elsewhere.

  • Frank Shannon

    There’s a lot of resentment fluctuating amongst hardcore fans about Rock being back and whatnot. I am actually glad guys like him, Brock, and Taker are back in the mix for Mania this year. These guys can help and have helped in drawing back people that haven’t watched in a long time. Look at the ratings heading into this year (2.8-2.9) then see the huge spikes just a few weeks later(3.5-3.7). These guys put asses in seats, and draw in viewers for television and P.P.V broadcasts.Wrestlers have no reason to complain because they’ll make more money if those guys are on the same card as them. I also feel that the overcritical and continuous stream of discontented feelings towards the product, even if they do what you wanted them to do, is completely hypocritical. If you really have that huge of an issue, then you should exercise the ability to change the channel and not to invest in the product altogether- that will speak louder volumes than what you’re currently doing.
