Dwayne Johnson Crushes GOP as The Rock Obama; Updates Bambi on SNL

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had a pretty solid turn as the host of last night's Saturday Night Live. In his cold open, he transformed in to The Rock Obama and laid the smackdown on GOP lawmakers John Boehner, Ted Cruz, and Tom Cotton.

The best sketch of the night might have been "New Disney Movie" - a live action remake of Bambi. Taran Kiallam's Vin Diesel-as-Thumper impression was pretty spot on.

I'd watch this in theaters.

I <3 The Rock. I follow him on Twitter because his tweets are especially helpful the days I don't feel like working out.

I have a funny story - I was once working out with a trainer at Gold's Gym in Venice Beach, CA, and he put me on a double ab machine (basically you put your legs through some rollers and held on to handles next to your head - you then crunched down while lifting your knees at the same time). I was supposed to do eight (8) reps. So I'm ready to start and The Rock comes into my eyeline to do some sort of lifting standing up in front of the mirror. So off I went, watching him... and didn't stop until he moved out of sight. By then, my trainer is basically rolling on the floor laughing, because I had done like 72 reps in a row! "I'll have a word with him to always be within your eyesight!" I couldn't laugh or do anything involving my belly for two days after that.
