Like I said, I don’t vouch for the list, I cut and pasted from a Reagan forum... maybe Cooper’s a “closet” Republican, LOL.

So is James Wood.

I've heard James Woods say he's still a democrat, but he's in favor of the War on Terror.

The list assumes that if you once said anything bad about any Democrat, which Manson did, that automatically makes one a conservative.

Why does it matter? It’s not like we look to Hollywood for political guidance.

I was surprised too.

She performed at Republican Inaugurations and she’s been a part of a few conservative mailings I’ve received.

I also recently heard her interviewed. A class act.

Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., reads scripture on one of the religion channels, so I assume he’s a conservative. On the other hand, he’s so old he doesn’t count. I don’t think he’s done any acting in the last 40 years. He must have made some good investments back when he was doing “77 Sunset Strip.”

He played Alfred on Batman the Animated Series Throughout the 90's.

"Most of the actors on that site were liberals."

Yes, but in an era when being a liberal wasn't the same as what it means today. Nonetheless, it was interesting to see that some of those actors had very close calls during WWII. Art Carney was wounded at Normandy, Russell Johnson (Gilligan's "Professor") was shot down in a B24, Jack Palance survived a B17 crash, Don Adams (Maxwell Smart)contracted malaria at Guadalcanal, Charles Bronson was a nose gunner, Jimmy Stewart flew 20 bombing missions over Germany, and Lee Marvin earned a Purple Heart as a Marine. I also read somewhere that Yogi Berra was one of those who went ashore at Normandy.

I don’t see anything here in what Dennis said that would make me call him a Conservative. He does sound like an almost reluctant Republican though.

Off the top of my head-Gary Sinise, James Woods, Bruce Willis, Kelsey Grammer, Patricia Heaton, Pauly from the Sopranos, Bo Derek

and from the music industry Fifty Cents and Kid Rock (seriously)

>>it seems the new “casting couch” involves making a public statement of “George Bush Is An Idiot”, or some formula to that effect, if one wants to work in the industry.<<

There is probably less objection to that than to some of the previous requirements... :)

Scotty from Star Trek was shot up pretty bad on normandy. Missing a few fingers IIRC.

Eddie Albert was a true hero. My memory is a little fuzzy, but I believe he was in the Navy and saw marines getting shot up pretty bad on the beaches of Tarawa (?). Made dozens of trips under heavy fire in a small boat (may have been a rubber dinghy with an outboard) to pull wounded Marines out of the water.

Ron Silver, although a lifelong Democrat, declared himself a “9/11 Republican” and gave a great speech at the 2004 Republican Convention.

Thank you for that great list in #75, dawn53!

Anyone know about Gary Sinise? I know he's done many shows for the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, has a charity for Iraqi children, and is National Spokesman for The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial.

Sinise appeared at at least one of Sean Hannity's Freedom Alliance concerts. We saw him at one of those concerts Sean had at Six Flags, NJ over the past few years...

Actually the one on the left is William (Billy) Baldwin.

Another person to add to the list is Adam Baldwin (no relation to the Baldwin brothers).

Anyone else know?

Willis has been trying to distance himself from Bush recently. He was supposed to make a pro-war movie about Iraq, but it never happened.

Bruce Willis is what you would call a Maverick.

Are you sure he abandoned his movie about the "Deuce Four" battalion? I was looking forward to that, but Bruce has taken down his website. No info.

More detail on Lee Marvin - he was wounded at Saipan when most of his platoon was killed. He was a Marine sniper. Jack Palance’s rugged face was largely a result of facial reconsctruction surgery after his B17 crash. And the senior George Bush was a Navy pilot who was shot down in the Pacific; his crew members both died. He also described an incident where he was standing on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier when a plane crash landed, and the debris sliced a man in half who was standing just a few feet from him. He says he still has nightmares of his war experiences.

I’ll be looking for Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton’s new FoxTV show in a few weeks, about two newscasters (!): “Back to You.”

Manson said he’d have voted for Bush in 2000 (”and not necessarily by default”), if he’d cared enough to vote.

Isn’t that interesting how even the biggest stars can’t get their projects bankrolled? Well, self-financing probably gives them more freedom too. It took Robert Duvall 10 years to get “The Apostle” to the screen. So glad he did; what a film.

I don’t know what Lee Marvin’s politics were. I do know that his tough-guy image wasn’t just an image, and that in his youth he was expelled from several schools for bad behavior. And as a Marine sniper, he was wounded at Saipan and earned a Purple Heart when most of his platoon was wiped out. It may have been a blessing in disguise, because he was sent home before the battle of Iwo Jima.

>> Metallica
Godsmack
ZZ Top

Add Kid Rock, 50 Cent, Marilyn Manson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Toby Keith, Jessica Simpson, Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, LeeAnn Womack, Martina McBride, Charlie Daniels, Ted Nugent, The Gatlin Brothers, Sara Evans, Brooks and Dunn, etc.

and, it seems all the worthwile musical acts ... from Grunge Rock, Heavy Metal, Rock, Pop, Christian and Country are all conservative.

The days of Woodstock are long gone. Godsmack rules.

It seems to me that conservatives are the more intelligent members of our society. If so, is it any wonder that you don’t find conservatives among the K-fed, Brittany, Lindsey, Paris crowd?

Are there any young actors/actresses who are NOT operating on a sub-moronic level?
