One of Hollywood’s more famous conservatives, actor and director Clint Eastwood is skeptical about much of the current GOP presidential field – that is, except for pizza magnate Herman Cain.

“I love Cain’s story,” he told the 24 Frames film blog. “He’s a guy who came from nowhere and did well, obviously against heavy odds. He’s a doer and a straight-talker, which I don’t see enough of from either party.”

He’s not as bullish on Mitt Romney. When Eastwood was in Massachusetts in 2002, filming “Mystic River,” Romney was running for governor there.

“I saw a lot of him and you have to admit — he looks like a president,” Eastwood recalled with a tone that you’d have to describe as being slyly sarcastic. “I mean, if you were casting a movie where you needed someone to play president, you’d definitely pick him.”

He sounded equally skeptical about Rick Perry. When I suggested that Perry, as a rugged, gun-toting Texan, would probably crave a photo op with Eastwood even more than with Donald Trump, Eastwood said with a shrug, “If he wanted to meet me, he might be a little disappointed.”
