"I absolutely do, yes", Johnson responded.
Calls for Johnson to run for president began in June 2016 following the release of an op-ed piece in The Washington Post that suggested he could win an election based on his likability and ancestry.
Johnson was very coy regarding what exactly prompted that tweet, but Colbert speculated that former Vice President Joe Biden spilled the beans. The main thing about his backstory that you need to know is that he was in the army and one day when he went out on a mission he got blown up and now he's only got one leg. "I need that thing... oh, experience", he said. It's a position that requires years of hard work and experience to learn the skills.
The 36-year-old actor-and-wrestler stayed silent when quizzed on his apparent feud with Vin Diesel, opting to plead the fifth when asked to confirm of list any of the "unprofessional" behaviour he'd previously complained about.

Lin joins rookie point guard Trae Young and veteran Dennis Schroder in a crowded back court with the Hawks. Whitehead, 23, averaged 6.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in 16 games off the Brooklyn bench last season.
Tyrese then hopped in the mix by blaming Johnson for the delayed production of the ninth installment to the franchise. The source says time will tell and if it does happen, it wouldn't be for a while. Johnson, who plays an amputee in the action movie, said Thursday, July 12, he is joining the Boston-based Ruderman Family Foundation, calling for more inclusion and opportunities for people with disabilities in the entertainment industry.
Also on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen", Johnson clarified his joke to ET's Kevin Frazier last week that he was the one to set up his "Baywatch" co-star, Priyanka Chopra, with his "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" co-star, Nick Jonas. "I love them both, they're both my friends", he said.
The "Late Show" host, who usually dedicates his monologue to making fun of President Donald Trump and other politicians, couldn't resist asking the star of "Skyscraper" if he actually takes the possibility of running for the presidency seriously.
