We all know which political party Hollywood big shots like Morgan Freeman or Jerry Bruckheimer back when election season comes around. But what about the actress who played Willie Scott in Temple of Doom? Who’s she backing?
Here’s a look at 15 celebrity campaign donations during the 2012 election cycle that you might have missed:
J. Peterman from Seinfeld is down with Romney.
In 2012, actor John O’Hurley (best known for his role as Elaine Benes’ idiosyncratic boss onSeinfeld) gave $1,000 to the Romney campaign. You might also know him as the former host of Family Feud, Billy Flynn in a Chicago production of the musical Chicago, Professor Beltranon Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, or a top contestant on the first season of Dancing With the Stars (he competed on behalf of Golfers Against Cancer).
O’Hurley’s past political and humanitarian work includes shelling out over $2,000 for Rudy Giuliani’s failed presidential bid in 2008 and fundraising for Mark Cuban’s Fallen Patriot Fund. O’Hurley laid out his simple, anti-whining platform in this 2005 interview with the University of California-Berkeley’s student-run conservative weekly California Patriot.
Miami Vice is in the bag for Obama.
Don Johnson achieved worldwide fame in the mid-’80s for playing a cop who shoots drug lords and owns a pet alligator. Future tough-guy roles included a (significantly goofier) cop on CBS’s Nash Bridges and a ultranationalist immigrant-hunter in Machete. Tough on crime? Yes. Staunchly conservative? No: He’s thrown $5,000 into Obama’s 2012 war chest.
Of course, this doesn’t mean Johnson’s particularly vocal about his politics. Nor does he object to chumming around with the other side of the aisle. Click here for a photo of Johnson hanging out with the Reagans during a 1985 state dinner for the prime minister of Denmark.
