Former “Superman” actor Dean Cain said despite loving California and living in the state his whole life, “terrible” policies from Democrats running have finally driven him to relocate to Las Vegas.

During the 56-year-old’s recent appearance on Fox News, Cain said the increase in homelessness, taxes, and surges in crime made him join other celebrities who have left the Golden State for Nevada, the New York Post reported.

“I love California,” Cain said. “It’s the most beautiful state. Everything’s wonderful about it except for the policies. The policies are just terrible. The fiscal policies, the soft-on-crime policies, the homelessness policies.”

“The things that our leaders in California have been doing have driven out anybody who can really afford to get out,” he added. “People are flocking out of there in droves.”

“I’ve been here for two weeks now, and I can tell you, [it’s a] smart move … my son is ten times happier here in Las Vegas,” the actor continued. “If I wanted to do anything out of Malibu, it took me 45 minutes to an hour to get anywhere. Here, the longest I’m driving is 20 minutes.”

When pressed by the host if Cain gave up being part of the entertainment industry by leaving Southern California, he said it has been suffering for a long time.

He noted that places like Georgia and Texas had become alternatives for movie locations due to the high costs of producing films in California nowadays.

“The cost of doing business is so much less [in those places] on every front,” Cain said.

The “Out of Time” star joins other actors like Mark Wahlberg, who picked up his whole family and left California for Nevada last year.


“It’s really giving the kids a chance to thrive,” the 51-year-old actor told Fox News Digital about moving his family to Las Vegas.

“It just has the best of both worlds,” he added. “I know a lot of people, when they think Las Vegas, they think the Strip. But just about 15, 20 minutes away, there’s a whole lot of other amazing areas that are all about family and community.”
