Now a source tells OK! the star is “absolutely serious” about throwing his hat in the ring if he’s got enough public support behind him.

By Johnson’s own admission, he doesn’t know anything about politics, but he’s a quick learner and he’s willing to take a course in political science and study,” dishes the source. (In 2018, the actor told The Late Show host Stephen Colbert he would need to “get some experience and understand policy” before launching an official campaign.)

The source says Johnson feels he has what it takes to unite the country. “Dwayne is motivated to help bring people together. He doesn’t like all the division that’s happening, and he thinks a lot of politicians are a bunch of losers,” adds the source. “It might be egotistical, but he thinks he can do a better job.”

"Dwayne’s family and friends are behind him,” says a source close to the star. “They think he has the right stuff."

As OK! previously reported, Johnson has been thinking about calling the White House home for quite some time. "I would consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted," he said when asked in 2017.

"Truly I mean that, and I'm not flippant in any way with my answer. That would be up to the people... So I would wait, and I would listen. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground," the movie star continued.

During the 2020 election, Johnson publicly backed the Biden/Harris ticket. "As a registered Independent for years now with centrist ideologies, I do feel that Vice President Biden and Sen. Harris are the best choice to lead our country, and I am endorsing them to become president and vice president," he said at the time.

"My vote represented my little daughters, my vote represented humanity, my vote represented decency, it represented the values and principles we teach our little girls and my vote also, for me, represented the importance of just being a good, decent human being and how important that is,” Johnson noted after Biden's victory.
