Dwayne Johnson want to be next James Bond

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has thrown his hat into the ring to be the next James Bond following Daniel Craig's departure.

The Rock's grandfather Peter Maivia was a pro wrestler from Samoa who appeared in a minor role in the 1967 Bond film You Only Live Twice.

"My grandfather was a Bond villain in You Only Live Twice with Sean Connery, ' Dwayne told Esquire.

"I would like to follow in his footsteps and be the next Bond. I don't wanna be a villain. You gotta be Bond."
