Support a sin tax on movie tickets to help ameliorate the damage that Hollywood and the entertainment industry has done to young minds. It goes along well with all the other nutty sin taxes that Hollywood Leftists are supporting.

In Britain stars trying to mobilise celebrity interest in publicising the anti-war moment are meeting reluctance. Among those actors who have put their heads above the parapet to call for peace are Mark Rylance, Julia Sawalha, Stephen Fry, Roger Allum and Saffron Burrows. The artist Sam Taylor-Wood and the writers Harold Pinter and Will Self have also taken part in anti-war events. From the world of film, directors Ken Loach, Antonia Bird, Terry Gilliam and Michael Winterbottom have spoken out, as have business figures Richard Branson and Anita Roddick. But stars of the music scene have proved wary - with the notable exceptions of Nitin Sawhney and Brian Eno - despite the fact that Damon Albarn from Blur and Robert Del Naja from Massive Attack are key players in the movement on this side of the Atlantic.

I haven't been in a movie theatre since the mid 80's because I refuse to give my hard earned money to liberal Hollywood actors. When it comes to TV, I watch TLC, HGTV, Food Network, and Fox News more than anything else.

I enjoyed watching Susan Sarandon in "Atlantic City" (with Burt Lancaster) standing in front of a window washing her breasts with lemon juice to get the smell of fish off her skin from her job at a casino shucking oysters. She was pretty sexy in "White Castle" too.

Whether alphabetized or not, this list still is full of typos. Try to make it look less illiterate. See reply 32.

I think Leno may have become a Bush convert. He recently had Bill Maher on the show and was arguing with him about Maher's leftist crapola. When Maher started attacking Bush, saying he was "devious" and dishonest, Leno defended him by telling how his wife Mavis, whose long-time cause was heading a group to help the women of Afghanistan, went to the White House for aid after the Taliban was kicked out. Leno said she's a lifelong Democrat from a big union family and didn't expect they'd even talk to her, so she was stunned when they ushered her into a meeting with Colin Powell and Condi Rice who asked, "What do you need?" He said she told them...And they not only promised to provide it, but then, they actually DID it! They kept their promise! If it had been the Clinton White House, they would've hit her up for a big contribution (or a BJ), made her some empty promises, and never followed through.

Ever since then, I've noticed that whenever there's some big news story involving Bush, like the State of the Union Address, Leno will do his usual "dumb Bush" jokes, but then he has Dennis Miller come on, knowing that Miller will support Bush and lambaste liberals. And unlike with Maher's appearances, Leno never argues with him, he just lets Miller rant while Leno sits behind the desk, laughs and feeds him straight lines. Miller has been on Leno's show about three times in the past six weeks, which is highly unusual booking procedure, unless there's an ulterior motive. I think it's Leno's way of supporting Bush without having to admit that he does.

Sam Jackson isn't, to my knowledge. He signed a piece of paper against the war on Iraq. Okay, not a good thing but he didn't publicize it and doesn't shoot his mouth off, he's allowed his opinion. He shouldn't have been on that list while others like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Aniston were not. Ditto for Dennis Weaver.

That is a pretty weird booking procedure, sounds like Dennis Miller is becoming Jay's 'David Brenner..' (the guy who steps in at the last minute when a guest cancels on Johnny Carson)

Good to hear that Dennis is Conservative/Libertarian

Somebody should take full page ads in one or two of the New York and LA newspapers saying something like this.... ATTENTION! ALL CELEBRITIES WHO HAVE NOT YET MADE PUBLIC THEIR OPINION ON THE WAR AND THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION!

DON'T!!!

We the people of this great country do not want to boycott your movies. We like seeing you on the big and small screen. What we will not tolerate, however, is your blithering, idiotic and uninformed comments concerning our President and the possibility of America defending herself against unprevoked attacks. We don't care what your politics are or how you vote, but you must stop using your vocations as a political soapbox. You're risking your careers and future income.

Sincerely -- All Americans who love their country and support their troops.

Thanks for the Alpha list. Easier to read and see at a glance. I'm not surprised at this list at all and the people on it are not ones I would watch in anything anyway. Not seeing the majority of these names breaking records or hauling in the awards either by the way look at some of the names...aging stars...elliott gould? Asner? saarndin? Yipes...wouldn't waste my precious time with any of them. Thanks.

...Actually, I enjoyed watching Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn in Dead Man Walking last night. Sarandon won an Academy Award for Best Actress, and Penn was nominated as Best Actor. Truly great film....

As a resident of Louisiana where the film is set and having seen the film, I don't share your enthusiasm. As polite as I can say it, Sarandon does is not a "star" for her gifts in pretending to be someone else. Her gifts are that she performs great lewd sex on screen. See Bull Durham, White Palace, The Hunger, Thelma and Louise. Without these films her career would be as an unknown and in each her gift is not her strong pretending to be someone else.

I have no problem with naughty bits on screen (I kinda' like them) but that really is the extent of her talent.

The contribution of the performer in movies is seriously overrated. The writing (which gets short credit) is really the critical part of a movie or play. What ego driven half talents do is really unimportant.

That being said, Doug McClure and Roddy McDowell were overlooked giants.

I loved Hunt for the Red October but...threw it out.

If you're trying to hit these people in the pocketbook, how does throwing out a movie you've already bought accomplish that?

Better, I would think, would be to sell the used copy so as to hopefully result in one less new copy being purchased.

True, but...it gives me such great joy to toss it in the trash heap where it belongs. At least I know it is not soiling an area in my home.

As for hitting them in the pocketbook, I can do that too by not going to the movies. However, I alone will not make a dent but if everyone does it will make a huge dent.

Besides, I don't like knowing I have any video in my house starring people that go against our President and our country when we are at war. It's like having something evil lurking in my home. That's my little boycott. :)

Well, I'd respect him more if he would stand up and outwardly support President Bush. Guess you can't have everything but how nice it would be for someone to put their core beliefs and values out there for evryone to see instead of hiding behind whatever.

I stand up for Sam Jackson's right to his opinion like I have a right to mine. I would defend his right ot his opinion as well. He did what he thought was right and then let it go. It's the bashing or our President and his policies and the almost supporting of the enemy that will always and forever remain in my mind with these other people. By the way...Jeniofer anistin....overrated, yes?

Add David Cross, co-star of the "Mr. Show" on HBO (which I don't have so I have not seen the show), to the list.

He was on Carson Daly's Late Night TV show last night and Daly asked about comments of his disdain for Bush that he has included in the liner notes to his new "comedy" CD.
Cross elaborated how much he hated Bush and that he was positive he was "the worst President ever".

When Daly asked Cross what he had thought of Clinton, Cross replied "I didn't really think about him that much when he was President, but now, I love him more than ever."

Then you're simply confirming just what this list was clearly intended for in the first place -- mental masturbation, for your own satisfaction. You don't take it seriously, and you don't intend to persuade.

I'm not in the least surprised, of course.

Why doesn't someone start a DAILY listing of HOllywood celebrities who have actually come out with POSITIVE comments about our country? Instead of all this hate-spewing towards anyone who does not agree with them? Once we had the names these actors and actresses, we could begin to pressure the film studios to HIRE THEM - more frequently!
