Clint Eastwood Reportedly Heading To Tampa For RNC

Actor, director and politician Clint Eastwood [insert Dirty Harry quote here] is heading to Tampa for the Republican National Convention, reports TownHall.

Although the news — shared by a “well-placed” source within the GOP — might leave some wondering whether Eastwood might be tomorrow’s mysterious “TBD” speaker, so far there’s no confirmation that this is the case:

As the news media scrambles to identify the so-called “mystery speaker” scheduled to address GOP delegates on Thursday evening, some have speculated that the iconic Hollywood figure could fit the bill. Our source — who spoke on the condition of anonymity — could not confirm if Eastwood is, in fact, the intriguing “to-be-announced” speaker, but stated unequivocally that the Dirty Harry star will arrive in Florida late on Wednesday or early on Thursday, and will return to southern California on Friday.

You might recall that Eastwood — a lifelong Republican and former McCain supporter — raised eyebrows when he starred in a Super Bowl ad that had some speculating that he’d begun supporting Obama. Soon after, Eastwood addressed the confusion by sharing that he is “not politically affiliated with Obama.”
