Alyssa Milano says she would vote for Dwayne Johnson for president 'in a heartbeat' – Yahoo News Canada

Alyssa Milano thinks there’s at least one celebrity fit for the Oval Office.
The Charmed alum spoke to Extra this week about her new book Sorry Not Sorry and shared that while she may consider running for office one day, she would happily cast her ballot for Jungle Cruise star Dwayne Johnson “in a heartbeat.”
“There is a clear service-through-love mentality that he has that is really apparent,” she note. “I think he comes from a place of love and respect.”
Milano said that one thing she appreciated about Johnson was his decision to back President Joe Biden in the 2020 election, explaining that he “didn’t just stand by just because of their fear it would alienate half their audience.”
“I am grateful he did come forward and endorse Biden when the country was going through such struggle,” she explained.
The Who’s the Boss? star has long been politically active, and was recently arrested at a voting rights protest in Washington, D.C. — an experience she described as “not fun.”
As for whether Johnson will actually run for president, it isn’t out of the question. His character on the TV show Young Rock — which is a fictionalized version of his life — already shows his future self running for the highest office in the country in 2032.
In April, Johnson shared a Newsweek article to his Instagram that declared 46% of Americans would support the Fast and Furious actor running for president. He wrote of the “humbling” statistic, “I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club — but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people.”

Earlier this year, the Black Adam star told Willie Geist for Sunday Today, “I do have the goal to unite our country. And I also feel that: If this is what the people want, then I will do that."
Lucky for you, there's never been more—in terms of sheer quantity—sports pods to listen to, covering everything from baseball, to hoops, to the occasional foray into our larger culture. Billed as a "sort of sports show but not really," The Poscast hits the sweet spot of feeling like you're in a room talking sports with your friends, as great (and sometimes maddening) as that can be.
From Billy Crystal's baseball past to Dwayne Johnson's original career path, these are the stars you probably didn't know played sports in college. Whether they earned college athletic scholarships or walked onto the team, all of these celebs had what it took to compete at the collegiate level—sometimes at insanely elite schools.
Honestly, these guys are slower than most…

Syria's air defenses responded Saturday to missiles fired from Israel toward suburbs of the capital Damascus, wounding two soldiers, the Syrian military said. Syria's state news agency SANA quoted a statement by an unnamed military official who said the air defenses shot down several incoming surface-to-surface missiles from northern Israel just before noon, which also caused damage in the area.
