Actor George Clooney is ready for a new role: politics.

According to the British Mirror, the 53-year-old actor plans to become more involved politically after his marriage to 36-year-old British human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in September.

"He has big ambitions and aims to get into politics imminently," an unnamed friend told the paper. "He wants to do more humanitarian work and hopes to join the Democrats’ 2016 election campaign."

Those plans could even include a bid himself.

"Now he has Amal by his side it will give him more credibility to run for office," the friend told the Mirror.

Clooney, a Democrat, is friends with President Barack Obama and already has been involved in political activism. He campaigned for Obama in 2012 and was arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy along with other leaders for a planned protest over Darfur.

He also has called arguments against global warming "stupid."

Clooney was asked in 2012 whether he would run for president, but shrugged off any such suggestion — at least for that election cycle.

"There’s a guy in office who is smarter than anybody," Clooney said. "I have no interest."

Clooney's fiancee, Amal is based in London and is considered one the world's leading human rights attorneys. She represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
