Troubled by your choice of presidential candidates in 2016? Zac Efron knows how you feel, and he’s already got an alternative candidate in mind — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

“He wants to make an impact beyond acting,” said Efron of his Baywatch co-star in an interview with The Times of London. “He could run for president. F— it, he’d be better than anyone at this point.”

The Rock himself has teased a possible future in politics in an interview with British GQ:

“I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out. I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring. And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives on a global scale.”

Before Johnson follows in the footsteps of Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, he has an overflowing plate of entertainment projects to complete first. Not only has his HBO seriesBallers just been renewed for a third season, but Johnson is also a part of that big screen version of Baywatch with Efron, Disney’s Moana, Fast 8 (and possible sequels), the remake of Jumanji, and at least six other announced projects he’s attached to through 2019, according to IMDB. Hmmm, so that means he’s free for a 2020 ballot project — unless he gets too busy running his new YouTube channel by then?
