ACTION hero Dwayne Johnson has a message for new Star Wars director J.J. Abrams: "I'm ready for Star Wars. Bring it on, J.J."
In Sydney for the Australian premiere of his movie G.I. Joe: Retaliation last night, Johnson, 40, said the new shoot-'em-up adventure fulfilled only one of his boyhood dreams. "I played with two lines of action figures when I was a kid: G.I. Joe and Star Wars.

"By the way, because we didn't have a lot of money, I used to steal them. I'd just rip open the packages and shove 'em in my pockets ... like a lot of kids. I got caught a couple of times, got my ass kicked by my parents.

Which character should he play?

"So when I got the call saying, 'How do you feel about becoming the leader of the G.I. Joes?', it was like if I got a call from George Lucas saying, 'I want you to be in Star Wars'." Lucas has now handed the beloved sci-fi franchise over to new blood in the shape of Star Trek director Abrams, who is slated to deliver his first Star Wars movie in 2015. And 'The Rock' wants in. "I'm gonna call J.J. and you're gonna help by printing it and I'm gonna be in Star Wars!" the wrestler-turned-actor declared. Until then, fans can make do with seeing Johnson kick butt on earth when G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens on March 28.

All Star Wars films have atrocious acting, so Dwayne Johnson would fit right in.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

I think he would be better in. More comedic role with Harrison ford. Another smuggler type character.

Forget the Rock. I want a role in the new Star Wars movie. I would do it for free.

Even something small. That way I could say "Hey kids, see the third Stormtrooper on the right? Ya, that's your uncle!"

He's a terrible actor, but so is Ray Park. Make him muscle somewhere along the way. He may not be good at acting, but he's pretty good at acting like he's fighting.

As I said before, he's likeable. That said, JJ Abrams isn't a moron. This won't happen.

It all depends on what storyline they intend to pursue, but I bet he'd make good Vong...

...other possibilities would be Darth Kane, Talon Karrde and Prince Xizor...

It's been a while, but didn't Prince Xizor die in Shadows of the Empire for the N64?...Which by the way is in my top 5 list of favourite games of all time.

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

How about an Expendables sequel? Acting ability is certainly not a requirement for that series.

It's possible. I've actually only read some of the books that have him in it. I just thought the whole Black Sun organization could make an interesting addition to the Star Wars movie franchise....

...sort of like "The Godfather" meets the Solos and Skywalkers.

Maybe it's the nerd in me...but I think Rock would be better suited playing Christopher Judge's role in a remake of Stargate. Rock would make the perfect fill in as Teal'c...my god I miss Stargate...after Universe ended...I've been kind of lost.
