Skip to comments.Actor Robert Duvall Supports Rudy Giuliani [say it ain't so!]

The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee today announced that veteran actor and director Robert Duvall, along with his wife Luciana, are supporting Mayor Rudy Giuliani for President of the United States.
The Duvalls will also host a fundraiser for the Mayor at their Virginia home later this month.
Rudy has consistently proven hes ready to confront tough challenges, said Duvall. I dont normally get involved in politics, but I think the stakes are too high this election. Mayor Giuliani has the executive experience, proven record and bold vision needed to lead our country. Luciana and I are proud to support him.
As a fan and an admirer of Mr. Duvalls work for some time, I am honored to have Robert and his wife Lucianas support and help on our campaign, said Mayor Giuliani. Their willingness to not only offer their support, but to open their home is a tremendous contribution. I am excited to have the Duvalls on our team.
Still, Rob't Duvall's one of my favorites. I LOVE the smell of Napalm in the morning. That's bold talk for a one-eyed fatman! I have a special practice, I work for only one client.
Duvall does kinda look like him. Just put on some glasses and add a lisp, and he could be a rudy double.
Duvall’s one of the finest actors hollywood has ever produced.
I don’t really care what his politics are. Im just happy he is a republican.
Obviously he does not value his gun rights. He was never a wartime consigliere.
Maybe this is a ruse - the plan’s to take Rudy to a Nevada brothel and get him liquored up.
At least its not yet another hollywood-Democrat endorsement.
Robert Duvall is a Republican, not a conservative.
One guy who is a conservative and has been an actor, is the same guy Duvalla dn his wife will be voting for in Nov2008. Fred Thompson.
I saw Giuliani on the Hannity-Colmes show tonight, after Pres. Bush’s speech, and I have to say he came across very well - strong on national defense and strong on taking on the dems - but I just couldn’t help imagining him in a dress. I don’t know why that is.
Rooty is a liberal Democrat at heart and a Republican in name only. Liberal RINO!
Well, Ted Nugent is strong on guns and a dope on some nannystate stuff.
I wont make me stop listening to his music.
Ask yourself, what is Duval's connection with the Rooty?
I like DUval as an actor but know little of whether he is politically savy or not. Most actors are not politically savy, and are real flakey people when it comes to supporting a politician.
Clint Eastwood is politically astute, even though I do not agree with his politics most of the time. Barbara Streisand is a moonbat. Matt Damen is a moon bat, etc. The Governator is politically astute, but has his flakey moments which we have seen lately.
If I were Rooty, I would not be too flattered that an actor endorses him. Its a very mixed record on whether it is positive or not.
I wouldn't vote for Rooty if John Wayne emerged into life again and endorsed him.
Did you know Robert’s Dad was a Naval Admiral? His Mom was once an actress.
I had no idea.
No matter how you cut it, most "conservatives" in Hollywood stars, music stars and actors, would really qualify as RINOs (libertarian-lites.)
Robert Duvall's Dad was a Navy Admiral. Robert Duvall is not normally a Republican he's a libertarian...but looks like he's supporting a Republican this time around. He'd NEVER support a dem. EVER...he's from the old school...America First...
Great actor! At least he isn’t licking the derrierres of people like John Kerry...
My favorite line from his movies (on par with “I love the smell of naplam...” is from the movie “Open Range” when he gave a toast:
“Good health to them who has it comin...”
Guiliani is really comming out into the anti-religion candidate.
Most don’t understand his background. That’s why he’s the way he is...raised by a military man.
Rudy is better than a jackass any day of the week!
Rudy bashers can’t handle the truth: Fred and Rudy are the top two candidates for the GOP and either has a better chance of winning the general than anyone else from the GOP.
Surely you jest...
I don’t think I ever read that about him. Hmmm...
Who cares? How can anyone get excited about any of these assclowns? Thompson, Romney, Giuliani, Clinton, Obama, Edwards. Americans can all mourn that NONE of these individuals represents the best and the brightest amongst us. Possibly the most mediocre and uninspiring group of presidential candidates in history.
I liked him in Falling Down as well.
Robert Duvall Is also a descendant of Robert F. Lee.
Yes...he is certainly NOT liberal on many issues.
If he would leave some of those socially liberal issues to the states, I could definitely vote for him.
Well, he certainly has a star studded ancestry...George Washington and Robert E Lee. I'm even more impressed with him. It's a shame he never had kids of his own. And I think he was an only child.
It makes me feel good to at least someone in Hollywood apparently realizes the dangers and evils of Hillary Clinton. With all that talent and yet so stupid when it comes to things that really matter, like real life.
One of my all time favorites I have it and have to watch it about every two to three months. Absolutely great acting by all the stars involved.
I too have that video...I just loved that movie. I’ve read all the books related to that movie. ‘Commanche Moon’ [the young yrs of Capt Call & Gus McCrea] next is ‘Lonesome Dove’ last is ‘Streets of Laredo’[later yrs of Capt Call]. All worth the read.
Yes. Robert F. Lee VI.
Splendid movie. An oddity is that it was a TV movie first (where I saw it) and later released to the theaters. I think it had a different name as a TV movie.
No that was Bruno Lee.
I have a dear friend who used to date Duvall’s brother.
Apparently their Admiral dad was very intimidating!
"He publicly criticized director Steven Spielberg for flying to Cuba in October 2002, and vowed never to work for Dreamworks studio again."
Good for him.
Duvall is a great actor. Politically he is not very involved, and his views are best described as mostly (small “l”) libertarian, but definitely not progressive / liberal.
I saw an interview with him where the subject came up - he has a head screwed on right.
RG might not be our favorite Republican but it is good to see at least one major movie star not endorsing a far left Democrat.
I can understand that...what military man whose climb the ladder that high and not be a man of intimidation. One would have to... It looks like it did well by Duvall, he’s made quite a name for himself with his enduring characters that will forever out live him.
