When Johnson maintained he "can't say", Colbert seemed even more certain. He recently sat down with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show where he revealed why he put his political career on hold for now.

Watch Johnson serenade Colbert in the video above. "Just got word that will shock the world - Land of the free. home of the fearless DAMN PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!" was the social media message The Rock posted foreshadowing then-President Barack Obama's announcement.

"So when that started picking up, of course when I'm asked - yes, I have incredible respect for our American people and our country - so I said 'Yes, I would consider it, '" Johnson said to Colbert about the possibility of running for office. He was told President Obama was going to make the announcement in thirty seconds. The Skyscraper star said he is now lacking the experience needed to do the job which he would need to learn before making a leap into politics.

While Johnson has spoken about the subject in various interviews, during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night he explained that he has no desire to potentially go up against current U.S. President Donald Trump in 2020 and that he would only be serious about entering politics if he could commit "110%".

Johnson went on to explain how the idea began when the Washington Post wrote a story, suggesting if he ran for POTUS, he would stand a good chance of winning. Of course, I would. But at the same time, I'm not delusional at all, like I need experience. "I need that thing. oh, experience", he continued.

Johnson then took a shot of tequila with Colbert while looking him right in the eye.

After enjoying a shot, Colbert asked the actor to sing a song in Samoan because Johnson played a singing Samoan in the Disney film Moana.
