Clint Eastwood will be speaking at the Republican Convention in Tampa on Thursday according to Fox News. The networks website is reporting that a GOP source confirmed that Eastwood is indeed the mystery speaker. Thursday nights line-up has a To Be Announced speaker scheduled ahead of Senator Marco Rubio and GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney himself. Eastwoods name was floated earlier this week as the speaker along with former VP nominee Sarah Palin, Donald Trump and even a hologram of former President Ronald Reagan. No stranger to politics, Eastwood served as the Mayor of Carmel, California from 1986 to 1988. He supported John McCain in 2008 and endorsed Mitt Romney earlier this month at a Sun Valley fundraiser. Now more than ever do we need Mitt Romney, Im going to be voting for him, the Oscar winner said as the GOP nominee stood next to him on August 4. If Eastwood is really heading to Tampa to speak Thursday evening, hes going to have to get going soon. Deadline has learned that as of Wednesday afternoon, the actor/director was still at his home in Carmel. Eastwoods latest film, Trouble With The Curve comes out on September 21, 2012.

Although I was hoping it would be George.....
George Obama :>)
He was one of my guesses.
Hmmmm...But no Allen West ...Inhofe...Limbaugh...Bachmann...
Marketing research probably indicated that the old geezer GOPe faithful watching the Ward and June Cleaver infomercial disguised as a political party convention would be a target audience for senior citizen Clint who seems to be looking for that Henry Fonda role On Golden Pond.
This is gonna make my day.
So cranky, old Eastwood is going to fire up the crowd? ugh
I was hoping it would be the Reagan hologram... but Clint Eastwood will do I guess.
Is that your picture next to “cynical” in the dictionary?
You’ve always been a sour puss troll.
I hope he does “It’s halftime in America.”. That would be cool.
I was trying to describe Eastwood to my middle school-aged kids.
Blank looks when I said “Dirty Harry” the Unforgiven. El Torino.
Then I had it! “he’s the Spirit of the West in Rango!”
Then they said “ooohhhhhhh”
time to rent some old westerns.
Maybe he’ll be wearing a .44 Magnum.
Better would be this:
“Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.”
Maybe this is good politics. There is a segment of the American electorate that is impressed by celebrities and Romney needs their votes. Just what has this man who makes his living pretending to be other people actually accomplished? Somehow wish celebrities could be marginalized and left to the Democrats. However in a democracy everyone has to suffer their influence.
I’m kind of glad Sarah Palin was left out of the scene. That way it won’t look so awkward when she forms a third party to run against the RINOs in 2016.
Maybe Clint will share the podium with the Reagan hologram...sort of a can of whoop @ss duet.
