Dwayne Johnson does not stitch without thread.

And despite the fact that rumors have long been positioning actors or even talking about the next 007 being a woman, Dwayne Johnson has already has been postulated like new Bond.
“Yes, my grandfather was a Bond villain in You Only Live Twice, with Sean Connery. Very very cool. I would like to follow in their footsteps and be the next Bond. I don’t want to be a villain. I have to be Bond”, The famous actor has commented to Esquire.
