Is there anything Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can't do? In a recent video for GQ magazine, imagines himself in the sequels to various movie franchises, and the scenes are side-splitting.

In the sketch, Johnson's agent — played by Tituss Burgess from Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt — pitches the actor on some upcoming movies. Burgess throws one movie after another at Johnson, trying to get him to bite. But none of them tickles the Rock's fancy.

Let's take a look at these off-the-wall movie ideas:

The Sequel To 'Goodfellas'

First Burgess tells Johnson about the role of Joe Pesci's illegitimate son, trying to make his way in stand-up comedy, in the sequel to Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas. Which leads to the Rock's best impression of Joe Pesci's "I'm funny, how?" scene. I'm not sure who is more menacing. Fuhgettaboutit.

'Home Alone: They Forgot My Ass Again'

Instead of Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, just think of Johnson standing in front of a mirror with a towel around his waist, feeling the burn from some potent aftershave.

A Remake Of 'The Revenant'

That doesn't entice Dwayne Johnson at all. So Burgess offers him the remake of The Revenant but with the writers of The Notebook. You think watching Leonardo DiCaprio fighting a bear was hard to watch? Check out Dwayne Johnson getting a little romantic with the bear in this video.

The Sequel To 'Napoleon Dynamite'

After all the pitches from Tituss, Dwayne Johnson doesn't like any of the ideas ...and this is when Tituss offers Johnson the sequel to Napoleon Dynamite. Who knew the Rock had some killer dance moves under all that mountain of muscle?

Alas, we never get to see Dwayne Johnson in any of these movies for real. At least we can laugh about them in the above GQ video, and see the Rock in a real movie: The Fate of the Furious, in theaters everywhere now.

Which one of these movies would you want to see hit the big screen?
