Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson - Dwayne Johnson Wants To Battle Bond Like Grandfather

Wrestler-turned-action star Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson is keen to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather by playing a villain in the next Bond movie.

The actor's maternal grandfather Peter Maivia, who was also a wrestler, played a driver who becomes embroiled in a fight with Sean Connery's 007 in 1967's You Only Live Twice.

Now The Scorpion King star wants to follow in the family tradition and battle Daniel Craig in an upcoming installment of the superspy series.

Johnson says, "I would love to be a Bond villain. I am a huge fan of Daniel Craig and the Bond movies but it seems only right to follow in my grandfather's footsteps as a Bond baddie."
