Celebrity Stumpers: Sly Stallone Supports 'Rough Action Film' Hero John McCain

With Rambo on his side, presidential hopeful John McCain has nothing to worry about. In this clip from Fox News, an anchor asks actor Sylvester Stallone (a.k.a. Sly) who he supports in the upcoming presidential race. Considering Mr. McCain’s cinematic war-hero history—you know, the whole Hanoi P.O.W. stint back in the 60’s—Mr. Stallone has got to love the guy.

After the Republican senator from Arizona, 71, has a bit of trouble hearing the Fox anchor through his earpiece, they deliver the goods. Here’s what the 61-year-old actor had to say about his primo politico:

“I like McCain a lot, a lot. And you know things may change along the way, but there’s something about matching the character with the script. And right now, the script is being written and the reality is pretty brutal and hard-edged, and like a rough action film, you need somebody who’s been in that to deal with it.”
