Film: The Rock beats the President.

GIANT actor Michael Clarke Duncan says has turned down presidential invitations in favour of watching wrestling on television.

Duncan, who was nominated for an Oscar for his performance as a deathrow prisoner opposite Tom Hanks in The Green Mile, is a big fan of the World Wrestling Federation.

He especially likes to watch the performances of one of his best friends, The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson, with whom he appears in action movie The Scorpion King. Duncan, who plays Balthazar in the film, describes himself as a ``real homebody'' who doesn't go out very often.

He even reveals that, to the dismay of his agent, he turned down Bill Clinton - not once, but twice - to watch The Rock on WWF.
