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.”

Tom Hanks & Bruce Springsteen Pay Tribute to Jonathan Demme at Tribeca

Tom Hanks and Bruce Springsteen are paying their respects to esteemed director Jonathan Demme, who lost his battle to cancer earlier this week.

The actor and the musician shared their thoughts during the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival on Friday (April 28) in New York City.

CELEBS REACT: See how other celebrities are mourning Jonathan Demme‘s death

In Jonathan‘s 1993 film Philadelphia, Tom took home the best actor Academy Award, while Bruce took home an Oscar for the movie’s opening song, “Streets of Philadelphia.”

“I think the strongest union of our two names is probably Philadelphia,” Tom told the crowd. “God bless Jonathan Demme. We just lost him.”

“He was such an inspirational guy,” Bruce added. “No Jonathan Demme, no Philadelphia, no ‘Streets of Philadelphia.’ [Jonathan] wanted more of a rock song for the beginning, so I said I’d give it a shot. I tried for a day or so to come up with something, and I didn’t come up with anything. I had some lyrics. Eventually, I just came up with that tiny little beat and the track, and I figured it wasn’t what he wanted but I sent it to him anyway. He sent me that opening piece of film where the camera moves slowly through Philly, and I said, ‘What do you think?’ And he says, ‘Great.’ And that was it. It took about two days.”

“Well, I have to tell you,” Tom chimed in, “if you ever want to have a great moment in a motion picture, walk out a door and make sure they just put up a Bruce Springsteen song.”
