Gary Busey is endorsing Newt Gingrich for president.

The actor and reality TV star revealed the news during a holiday party in Washington, D.C. on Saturday.

“I’ve never met Newt but I know what he stands for,” Busey told The Hill.

He picked Gingrich over Rick Perry, even though the latter candidate is governor of Texas, Busey’s home state.

“He’s a good guy, he just doesn’t belong in the race,” said Busey of Perry.

Busey’s old “Celebrity Apprentice” buddy, Donald Trump, is still slated to moderate a Republican debate in Iowa on December 27 – even though only Gingrich and Rick Santorum have agreed to attend.

When he’s not endorsing presidential candidates, Busey can be seen starring on “Celebrity Wife Swap,” which begins in January.

Does Busey’s endorsement make you more or less likely to support Gingrich’s presidential bid?
