Dwayne Johnson Announces He's Running For President With Tom Hanks in 'SNL' Monologue – Watch Now! (Video)

It looks like we might see Dwayne Johnson and Tom Hanks on our 2020 presidential ballot!

The 45-year-old Baywatch actor joined the Five-Timers Club when he took on hosting duties for tonight’s Saturday Night Live season finale.

During his monologue, Dwayne announced his plans to run for president of the United States.

He was joined by Tom, who agreed to be his running mate (after Dwayne turned down Alec Baldwin‘s request).

Making a reference to President Donald Trump, Dwayne stated, “Now, in the past, I would have never considered running for president. I didn’t think I was qualified at all, but now I’m actually worried that I’m too qualified.”

Dwayne, I could not possibly turn this down,” Tom added. “The truth is, America really needs us. I have been in two movies where a plane crashes, and people are still happy to see me on their flight.”

“No one can seem to agree on anything anymore, except for two things…” Tom shared, before Dwayne finished, “Pizza and us.”

'SNL' Cast Reveal Secrets Behind Their Trump Characters!

THR‘s latest cover features SNL‘s biggest Donald Trump character spoofs including Alec Baldwin as the president, Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer, Beck Bennett as Vladimir Putin, Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway and Jeff Sessions, and Cecily Strong as Melania Trump.

Here’s what the comedians had to share with the mag:

Alec, on playing Trump: “I’m not going to name names, but a cabinet member walked up to me at a restaurant in Manhattan — Manhattan, that’s a hint — and he goes, ‘I gotta tell you something. This thing you’re doing is good, it’s really good,’ ” says the 59-year-old actor. “He goes, ‘I’ll get fired if anybody quoted me saying this, but that’s exactly what he’s like when you do it.’”

Melissa, on transforming into Sean Spicer: “I don’t do impressions. I don’t have the ear for it. But when I read the script, I was like, ‘Oh, God, that is juicy, but I don’t understand how we’re going to physically make it work.’ To which the amazing special effects person at SNL was like, ‘Oh, yeah, that’s not that big of a deal. That’s gonna take me, like, 15 minutes.’ I was like, ‘Hey!’”

Beck, on why his Putin is shirtless: “When I did the cold open with John Goodman [as Rex Tillerson] and Alec [in December], Lorne wanted to make sure that my Putin impression was entertaining throughout the scene as opposed to just one silly beat, which is what it had been before. He said, ‘Let him be that sort of Bond villain — he enjoys his power, he’s having fun with everybody. People want to laugh with him, so let’s see the silly side of Putin.’ Then when we were rehearsing it, he came by and said (in Michaels’ voice), ‘And with the shirt off.’”
