  • Another Hollywood star aligns with GOP (Rob Schneider)

    WND ^ | 10/4/2013 | Gina Loudon
    He credits Sandler for nudging him to the political right, and he is not shy about voicing his disdain for California’s current path. Schneider told WND he is frustrated that red tape in the policies of Gov. Jerry Brown forced him to move his vitamin business out of California. It became too expensive and time consuming for him to comply with state regulations. Although the best production staff, hair and makeup people are in California, he has not done a film in the Golden State in seven years. Brown and the supermajority of Democrats in the legislature, Schneider said, have...

    Chalk one up for Mitt Romney – he’s got former “Happy Days” star Scott Baio’s vote. The actor, now starring in Nick at Nite’s new comedy, “See Dad Run,” stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Friday where he explained why he supports the Republican Presidential nominee. “I believe in Governor Romney for a lot of different reasons. I’ve met him many times and he’s a straight up guy, he’s a good guy, great family man [and] his kids are fantastic,” Scott told Kit Hoover and Billy Bush. “I think we need to be fixed in this country.” Scott said being...

    Hollywood is known for being overwhelming left-of-center. From celebrity-led fundraisers supporting President Barack Obama's re-election campaign to incendiary rhetoric aimed against Republicans, the majority of Hollywood doesn't hide its liberal inclinations.That being said, Tinseltown isn't completely devoid of GOP enthusiasts. While they comprise a very silent minority, right-of-center celebrities exist --- and some may even surprise you. While the following list is by no means a complete picture, it is a compilation of 10 of the most interesting and surprising actors and performers who reportedly consider themselves Republicans. 1.

    While President Obama is usually the candidate rubbing elbows with Hollywood's celebrities — just this week it was announced the president's campaign would host fundraisers with the cast of "The Wire" and Vogue editor Anna Wintour — Mitt Romney is looking to cash in with some star power of his own. Actor Robert Duvall, star of "Apocalypse Now" and "The Godfather," will host a fundraiser for the Republican presidential hopeful in September at his Virginia home. According to the invitation — obtained Wednesday by the National Journal — tickets to the event are $2,500 per person, while a $10,000 donation...

    Just when you thought that Hollywood is completely liberal, one of the few known conservatives in Tinseltown recently stepped forward to remind us otherwise. In this case, it's actor/director Clint Eastwood, who recently did an interview with the L.A Times where he talked about his political beliefs. Some highlights: Having started voting for GOP presidential contenders in 1952 with Dwight Eisenhower, Eastwood said he was tempted to break ranks only once — in 1992, for Ross Perot. “I liked him,” Eastwood said. “I guess because I like rebels.”... “...I’m a big hawk on cutting the deficit.

    Heads up Alec Baldwin, there’s another actor with his eye on a political career. The New York Post reported Sunday that Kelsey Grammer intends to run for office in the future, perhaps in New York where he now resides. A rare conservative in Hollywood, Grammer told the paper that being an actor and a politician both require a "narcissistic personality” and “a resilient ego.” Money doesn’t hurt either. The Post pointed out that the actor, who will play a fictional Chicago mayor on a drama called “Boss” this fall, is worth almost $100 million. What might hurt? Four marriages and...

Cannell died Thursday evening of complications associated with melanoma at his home in Pasadena, his family said.

As you could tell from the ads, Kevin Farley plays a Michael Moore-like director, Michael Malone. He is recruited by some terrorists to make a training film. He is haunted by ghosts such as JFK, Gen.

    'An American Carol' David Zucker wants you to know that not everyone in Hollywood is a raging liberal. The co-creator of such off-the-wall comedies as Airplane! and the Naked Gun trilogy converted to the Republican Party in 2004, contributing anti-Democrat ads to the conservative cause. Zucker takes his onscreen politics a step farther with An American Carol (PG-13), an update of Charles Dickens' Christmas classic with Ebenezer Scrooge replaced by a Michael Moore-style filmmaker. Kevin Farley plays Michael Malone, whose latest liberal crusade involves abolishing the Fourth of July. Malone is visited by three patriotic ghosts who attempt to change...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Sarah Palin represents many things Hollywood liberals love to hate, from her opposition to gay marriage to her support for gun rights, yet she possesses two key qualities they admire -- star appeal and a great script. Accordingly, Hollywood Republicans -- often overshadowed by their left-leaning peers -- are seeking to capitalize on the celebrity of John McCain's running mate in the November 4 election to generate support in a town well-known for its lavish Democratic fund-raisers and events. "She's certainly got star appeal and is the kind of candidate that is made for Hollywood. I...

In recent years, Zucker has become one of the most outspoken voices in showbiz conservative circles who believes that Hollywood is in "a new McCarthy era" because of its hostility to conservative views.

The left has monopolized the arts for so long that some on the right have lost the knack of them. We love to denounce Hollywood and indulge in paroxysms of rage about the latest artistic insults to patriotism and God. But when it comes actually to producing mature and complex works of art -- or supporting the people who produce them -- a good...

Peterman has left the jungles of Burma to support the Republican Party. John O’Hurley, the actor who played the television character, is an open conservative whose views have been known among his colleagues throughout his acting career. O’Hurley addressed students at the 2005 College Republican Convention in Sacramento last month, evoking the eloquent and eccentric humor many know him for. With self-deprecation for both himself and his “Seinfeld” character, O’Hurley filled the...

    If you're dissatisfied with one Hollywood politician in California, you can always find another as a replacement. Angered by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's appointment of a Democratic chief of staff, the conservative California Republican Assembly launched a Web site last week urging voters to draft actor Mel Gibson for governor. Gibson became something of a hero among religious conservatives after his 2004 movie "The Passion of the Christ."

"The governor's the one...

    ANGERED by negative portrayals of the conflict in Iraq, Bruce Willis, the Hollywood star, is to make a pro-war film in which American soldiers will be depicted as brave fighters for freedom and democracy. It will be based on the exploits of the heavily decorated members of Deuce Four, the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry, which has spent the past year battling insurgents in the northern Iraqi town of Mosul. Willis attended Deuce Four’s homecoming ball this month in Seattle, Washington, where the soldiers are on leave, along with Stephen Eads, the producer of Armageddon and The Sixth Sense.

    Hollywood A-lister Bruce Willis is set to buck the Hollywood trend of running from the heroics of the American troops in Iraq and is set to make a pro-war film about the American soldier. In the film, American soldiers will be accurately depicted as the brave fighters for freedom and democracy that they are, according to a report in the Sunday Times UK. The patriotic actor recently put his money where his mouth is - offering up a million dollar bounty on the heads of Islamofascists Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri or Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

    Conservatives in Hollywood?! Brian C. Anderson Autumn 2005 It was hard to parody Hollywood’s loony limousine liberalism this summer. “I’m coming out,” trumpeted actress Jane Fonda about her plans for an anti-Iraq-war bus tour (thankfully later canceled). “I have not taken a stand on any war since Vietnam”—if “stand” is the right word for her 1972 lovefest with the enemy. Paramount announced that conspiracy-minded director Oliver Stone, who described the 9/11 terrorists’ “revolt” as a legitimate “fuck you, fuck your order” to culture-controlling American movie corporations (of all things), will helm Tinseltown’s first large-scale drama about the attacks. David Koepp,...

    Actor Bruce Willis wanted to serve his country as far back as the Gulf War. His friends laughed at him, telling him he was too old. Undaunted, Willis looked into himself – only to find out they were right. He was too old. So the star of "Die Hard," "The Sixth Sense," "Hostage" and dozens of other movies, did the next best thing. He traveled to Iraq with his band, the Accelerators, to entertain troops with the USO. He is also planning to join returning troops at Fort Lewis in Washington state Nov. 5. "The idea of serving my country...
