Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is now officially eligible for the 2020 U.S. election.
Johnson, who is registered as an Independent, joked about running for President on the season finale on Saturday Night Live in May.
Johnson shared an image of himself on Twitter standing behind a podium labeled "'The Rock' Johnson 2020" to promote the episode and "announced" on the show that he and Tom Hanks were teaming up for a bid.
Whether or not it was just a joke, someone filed a campaign on Johnson's behalf with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Sunday to make him eligible for the 2020 election.
According to The Hill, that someone is an individual named Kenton Tilford based in West Virginia.
He doesn't have a clear connection to Johnson.
We still don't know if former WWE champ is actually serious about running for President, but the "Run the Rock 2020" campaign committee is waiting for him.
