US action movie star Chuck Norris became the latest celebrity to endorse Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the January 22 election.

The endorsement from Norris came on the heels of US real estate mogul Donald Trump's announcement that he supports Netanyahu in the election.

Norris was scheduled to speak Netanyahu on Wednesday evening in a conversation organized by Johnny Daniels, the Israeli Republican political consultant who organized the Trump endorsement.

Norris first gained notoriety as a martial artist in the 1970s, before starring in films such as Delta Force and the television series Walker, Texas Ranger. Norris has previously contributed to the campaigns of several Republican political candidates in the US.
