Hercules star likes Jindal, Walker for 2016

Actor Kevin Sorbo is a supporter of Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.), but is also considering Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) should either decide to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

The Hill spoke to Sorbo at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.

The actor, who became famous for the Hercules television series in the mid-90s, said Jindal has a few scenes playing himself in the forthcoming movie Caged, that focuses on human trafficking.

“I think he’d be a great candidate,” Sorbo said of Jindal. “I like the fact that he’s a strong-valued man and he speaks his mind, we need that. I just agree with what he said the other day that the Republican Party needs to find a spine.”

But Sorbo said he’s keeping his powder dry, and could also see himself supporting Walker, the surging governor from Wisconsin.

“I like Walker,” he said. “I’ve met him a couple times and he’s a good guy.”

Sorbo has an anti-establishment streak, and said he’s a big proponent of term limits.

“Every election I tell people to vote everyone out,” he said. “Let’s clean house and get a new start. I’m a guy that believes in term limits, I’m tired of the 40 year careers.”

“I just don’t want to see another Clinton versus a Bush,” he added. “Enough of those two. I’m done.”
