Danny Glover is the latest Hollywood star to throw support behind a candidate in this year's New York City mayoral election, Page Six reported, backing Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.

"Hello, my friends, all of you in New York City. I am Danny Glover, and I am supporting Eric Adams as mayor of New York, the next mayor of New York," the "Lethal Weapon" star reportedly says in a new campaign ad.

Glover, an activist known for being politically outspoken, adds, "I believe in his programs, his ideas, his integrity to bring real justice to the city."


Glover is one of several celebrities to endorse a candidate ahead of the Democratic primary next week, although Adams doesn't have as many in his corner as some other hopefuls.
