Inspired by Trump, this A-lister is currently gearing up for 2020, according to Hollywood sources. ‘He badly wants to run,’ says my ally. ‘Nearly everyone around him is telling him not to. He’s hellbent and is already laying the groundwork.’
So, tell me, Gossipers:
Who is our A-lister?

Do you smell what The Rock is cooking? The White House apparently.
Despite his friends and allies warning him not to, action star and legendary professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is seriously laying the groundwork for a potential run for the Presidency against incumbent President Trump in 2020.
My source informed me last year Johnson had seriously discussed the idea with Hollywood insiders at parties during the infamous Trump vs Clinton Election, and after jokingly announcing his decision on Saturday Night Live with Tom Hanks, the movie star admitted in an interview with Variety that running is a “real possibility.”
Johnson, who is widely believed to be a Republican, has yet to publicise his political beliefs or even admit his political party.
UPDATE: I wrote this reveal on Monday and Johnson filed campaign papers to officially run in 2020 on Wednesday.
