Robert Duvall to Host Romney Fundraiser

Robert Duvall will host a Romney campaign fundraiser with Mitt Rommey’s wife, Ann, on Sept. 6.

Duvall is one of the rare entertainment figures to host an event for Romney, especially compared to the number of show biz personalities who have headlined those for President Obama. Next month, Gwen Stefani and Warner Bros.’ Barry Meyer will host events in Los Angeles for Obama’s reelection campaign, with First Lady Michelle Obama the guest.

Duvall’s event, first reported by National Journal, will be held at the actor’s London County, Va. home, with a general reception costing $2,500 per person, a VIP photo session for $10,000 per person and dinner tickets at $25,000.

Duvall hosted a fundraiser for Rudy Giuliani in September, 2007, and later narrated a movie about John McCain for the Republican National Convention in 2008.

Update: Obama has called HBO’s “The Wire” one of his favorite shows. The cast of “The Wire” is hosting an Obama fundraiser on Martha’s Vineyard on Aug. 15, according to the Sunlight Foundation.
