You have to admit, “The People’s Lightsaber” has a ring to it.
Starting March 28, the WWE Universe will get to see WWE Champion The Rock as never before, starring as Roadblock in the action film “G.I. Joe: Retaliation.” But could it be long before The Great One joins another decorated franchise in the form of “Star Wars”?
According to comments the WWE Champion made while attending a “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” premiere in Sydney, participating in the beloved sci-fi film series has always been a dream of The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment, who admitted to playing with both “G.I. Joe” and “Star Wars” action figures as a child.
The Rock told Australian press that learning of his role in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” was akin to getting a phone call from “Star Wars” mastermind George Lucas.
The WWE Champion went as far as to say he plans on directly petitioning J.J. Abrams, the director of the next “Star Wars” installment, due out in 2015.
“I’m gonna call J.J. and you’re gonna help by printing it and I’m gonna be in ‘Star Wars’!” he said.
If The Rock were to land a part in the next “Star Wars,” would you see him as a Jedi or do you think he'd embrace the Dark Side?
