Representatives for George W Bush are hoping to recruit actress LARA FLYNN BOYLE for campaigning duties, after she publicly declared her support for the American President.

The former star of The Practice, 34, has gone against the grain of a large number of her Hollywood counterparts to pledge her support for the Republican leader.

She says, "I'm Irish Catholic, so a Democrat by blood. But I'm 100 per cent for Bush. I want my president to be like my agent: not afraid of people, but wants my best interest."

And a Bush spokesman has welcomed the news, telling US WEEKLY, "If she's amenable, obviously we would try to find something interesting and useful for her to do."
