Amid lots of guesses, Allen West stays mum on his secret Hollywood admirer

It appears that Rep. Allen West’s (R-Fla.) secret movie-star admirer is going to remain anonymous. At least for now. 

West revealed last week that a conservative Hollywood star had called him on the phone, but didn’t say whom, so ITK put out a call for guesses.

The responses poured in, and a few names came up over and over, including Chuck Norris, Denzel Washington, Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, Tom Selleck and Bruce Willis. ITK had initially posited that it might be Jon Voight, Kelsey Grammer or Gary Sinise. 

A few jokers even guessed Lindsay Lohan. 

But when West heard the names this week, he didn’t blink. “I’m not telling you yet,” he said, appearing pleased, “but I’ll tell you someday soon.”
