Arnold Schwarzenegger, the action film star and erstwhile governor of California, reportedly wants to try his luck at higher office – the presidency.

Despite his political experience and considerable popularity, Schwarzenegger has a major roadblock in his way for the 2016 election. Born in Austria, Schwarzenegger is prevented from running for the president of United States by the Constitution. The 66-year-old actor has apparently begun making an effort to amend the ruling to allow United States citizens born outside the country a shot at the presidency.

“Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016,” a source told the New York Post. “He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules.”

While Schwarzenegger has not publicly announced his plans to seek a rule change and subsequently run for president, he’s recently expressed nostalgia for his work in politics. He took to Twitter earlier this month to remember his election as the governor of California 10 years ago.

In order for the U.S. Constitution to be amended to allow Schwarzenegger a shot at the presidency, the ruling has to be passed by a two-thirds majority in both the House and Senate.
