Dwayne Johnson Is Ready For Star Wars; "Bring It On J.J."

Body

6100 While promoting G.I. Joe Retaliation, rising action star Dwayne Johnson let it be known that he has his sights set on another action figure franchise -- Star Wars.

Turns out, as a kid, Johnson really only played with G.I. Joe and Star Wars, so with one down, now he wants the other and he's going right at it.

"I played with two lines of action figures when I was a kid: G.I. Joe and Star Wars," the WWE heavy-weight champ told Australia's News.com. "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."

Dwayne Johnson continued by comparing the call for getting G.I. Joe to getting a call from George Lucas, and then stated he's going to be in Star Wars with mention he's going to call director J.J. Abrams.

"I'm gonna call J.J. and you're gonna help by printing it and I'm gonna be in Star Wars!" Johnson told News.com. "I'm ready for Star Wars. Bring it on, J.J."

Catch Dwayne Johnson March 28th with the premiere of G. I. Joe: Retaliation and also the recently announced new Hercules movie.
