While President Obama is usually the candidate rubbing elbows with Hollywood's celebrities just this week it was announced the president's campaign would host fundraisers with the cast of "The Wire" and Vogue editor Anna Wintour Mitt Romney is looking to cash in with some star power of his own.
Actor Robert Duvall, star of "Apocalypse Now" and "The Godfather," will host a fundraiser for the Republican presidential hopeful in September at his Virginia home.
According to the invitation obtained Wednesday by the National Journal tickets to the event are $2,500 per person, while a $10,000 donation will assure you a photo with Duvall. For $25,000, supporters will get to enjoy dinner at the Duvall home.
While Romney is not expected to attend, his wife, Ann, is scheduled to be there.

When I am browsing movie selections one of my key criteria is “does it have Robert Duvall in it?”
His projects have always ranged from outstanding to passably entertaining. I have never seen him in anything that was actually bad.
‘Falling Down’, another good one.
Not to mention “Broken Trail” and “Open Range”.
“Seven Days in Utopia” - some marginal acting by bit players, but Duvall is just excellent throughout.
Oh how I love the smell of incinerated Commies in morning!!
He’s always been one of my favorites. He was the one I liked best in the Godfather
Indeed. Nice turns from Billy Bob and Farrah Fawcett.
My favorite was LONESOME DOVE.
One of the best actors around.
Boss Spearman: It's a pretty day for makin' things right!
Charley Waite: Well you may not know this, but theres things that gnaw at a man worse than dying.
Very enjoyable movie. I first watched it only because a friend owned one of the horses used during filming. It has turned into a favorite. Besides, Duvall and Caine are some of the best actors out there.
“It’s not personal, President Obie. It’s business... “
I thought Duvall was conservative?!
By Hollywood standards, he is.
What I find appealing about Tender Mercies is that it's one of the few Hollywood releases that doesn't mock Southerners, Texas or Christianity. In fact, Mac's redemption through Christ is treated respectfully and with dignity. The baptismal scene is accurately portrayed and like the entire movie, was shot just south of Dallas.
Rent it, buy it...just get it. Be warned that there are no monsters or exploding cars so it's not suitable for everyone. But if want to see a superb character study, this is among the best. And, oh yes, Wilford Brimley is in it and he's always a great addition to a film.
Ping to dfwgator since we often are on the same page when it comes to sports and movies. Have you seen it?
I remember seeing it awhile back, not exactly my cup of tea, but I still liked watching Duvall.
