The 52-year old actor said the it was two-year in consideration which reached a decision just over the last couple of months. He said, ‘How and where and what can I do to be most useful to myself, to my family and to the most amount of people?” which put forth the idea of entering politics in his mind.
He added, “But at this point in my life with the things, I’ve got a 13-year-old, an 11-year-old, an 8-year-old.” He wants the live the live he’s living right now and politics is not a “category” for him at this point.
When asked if will change his mind in the future, the star said, “I’m not until I am.” The actor while considering politics never mentioned whether he would run as Democrat, Republican or Independent, describing his idea of politics as “aggressively centrist.”
In his latest release, Sing 2, the actor voices the character Buster Moon. The movie also features Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Nick Kroll, Tori Kelly, Nick Offerman and U2 lead singer Bono. The movie hits the theaters on Dec. 22.
