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

During this week’s media tour of Sydney, Australia to promote “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” WWE Champion The Rock 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.
