Changing Channels

Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood is looking for hope and change when it comes to the 2012 presidential race.

He apparently hopes Mitt Romney can change the course of a still-struggling economy that posted decent jobs growth this past month but is still lagging overall.

“I think the country needs a boost,” the legendary movie star, director and producer told AP Friday night when he attended a Romney fundraiser in Sun Valley, ID.

It’s in the least an interesting turn for Eastwood, who seemed to be leaning toward giving the president another four-year run when the star appeared in February’s Super Bowl halftime show.

The president still enjoys broad Hollywood support, but some actors and comedians have taken him on in recent months, including Matt Damon and Jon Lovitz.

Mitt Romney may not be the most exciting candidate around, but apparently if he won the election it would make Eastwood’s day.
