After revealing his presidential ambitions in a recent GQ feature, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced that he will be running for President of the United States with Tom Hanks on the season finale of SNL.

The wrestler-turned-actor was introduced by Alec Baldwin and then joined by Tom Hanks for a humorous monologue for the season finale of SNL.
