    LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) Back in the 1960s, when Dennis Hopper was directing his counterculture classic "Easy Rider," he could never have imagined himself playing a colonel and former Green Beret, which he does on NBC's Wednesday military drama "E-Ring," produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. "People always say to me, 'Are you playing a bad guy?'" Hopper jokes, sitting in the living room of his industrial-modern house in Venice, Calif., an imposing corrugated-metal-sheathed structure filled with pieces from his large modern-art collection. "Somebody said the other night, '"From Easy Rider to E-Ring",' that should be the name of my autobiography.' It is...

    Twenty months after Mel Gibson's "The Passion" took the nation's box office by storm, what progress have conservatives actually made in challenging liberal hegemony in Hollywood? Is it any easier today for a conservative-themed film to make its way down the studio pipeline than it was in early 2004? The answer to this question must be a resounding 'no.' Based on projects recently greenlit by the major studios - including a host of films openly dismissive of the War on Terror - one might argue that Hollywood is drifting even further left than it was in 2004, when films like...

          LOS ANGELES - Dennis Hopper is a Republican."People would be surprised to know that," says Hopper, maverick star and director of the '69 hippie-stoners-on-bikes classic, Easy Rider, in a recent interview."I've been a Republican since Reagan. I voted for Bush and his father. I don't tell a lot of people, because I live in a city where somebody who voted for Bush is really an outcast."One of Hollywood's legendary enfants terribles, Hopper, 69, is so straight now it's almost scary.He's been sober for 22 years. He plays golf. He wears suits and ties. And now he's...

    Conservative Spotlight: Liberty Film Festivalby Katie FarberPosted Aug 24, 2005It is commonly assumed that Hollywood, from directors to actors, is liberal. The Liberty Film Festival, set to take place October 21-23, is an annual event that aims to debunk this myth. Started last year, the Liberty Film Festival, co-founded and co-directed by Jason Apuzzo and Govindini Murty, is Hollywood’s first and only conservative film festival. It seeks to give prominence to talented filmmakers who cannot get their work shown within the existing Hollywood system, as well as to educate the public on films from a conservative perspective through commentary on...

    Script #2. I have been hired to write a bio-pic about a very famous Republican talk-show host. A man who has revolutionized the radio format. I decide that I’m going to be up front with the studio executives. “I’m not going to assassinate this man,” I explain. “If that’s what you want, get another writer.” “No, no, we want you to do it because you have such a good feel for character. Just be honest.” I’m a moron. I believe them. I go off and write the script. I hand it in and walk into a firestorm of a meeting....

    As an unexpected shower cascades outside, Dennis Hopper walks into the hotel dining-room as if the sun has just burst through the clouds. Wearing jeans, a tie and a powder-blue jacket, he has a huge cigar wedged in his mouth - one of the few vices left to a man who, at his worst, consumed half a gallon of rum, 28 beers and three grams of cocaine a day. Looking more like a movie mogul than the counterculture icon of Easy Rider, he is in celebratory mood. "This is my 50th year in the film business," he announces, his grey...

There are a few points Govindini and I made in the article that bear repeating - because they come up so often on our discussions in this subject. First of...

    The conventional Hollywood wisdom has long held that religious and family-friendly movies are not high earners. But this wisdom is beginning to wane in the face of recent theater trends. The five top-grossing movies so far this year are rated either PG or PG-13, and all of them have surpassed the $100 million mark. Two of last year’s top 5, Shrek 2 and The Incredibles, were PG-rated animated films. This kind of success is causing executives to rethink their standard fare. Family-friendly movies, especially animated ones, have brought people to the movies who haven’t gone in years. And they will...

    Ronald Reagan. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Fred Thompson. Sonny Bono. That guy on the Love Boat. It drives Democrats batty that so many Hollywood luminaries, who are supposed to be their people, have gone on to become successful Republican politicians. For California Democrats, it's especially galling to face a celebrity deficit when taking on Arnold, which is why many party activists wish one of their own Hollywood heavyweights would run for governor in 2006. Rob Reiner is mentioned as a possible white knight, and Warren Beatty can't give a speech without being asked to put up or shut up, or being called...

    Right fights back Conservative filmmakers struggle to make their voices heard amid what they call a hostile Hollywood environment. By Paul Bond Between the lines Forget about whether Fox's "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith" contains vague attacks on the Bush administration -- there are plenty of less-nuanced examples of antagonism toward Republicans in mainstream movies. So says a new breed of politically conservative filmmakers who, tired of waiting for Hollywood executives to give 'em a break, are creating companies to make and distribute their Republican-friendly works. And lest there be doubt about their political agenda, they...

    Saturday I had the good fortune of meeting Mark Goddard the former actor best known for his roles in Lost In Space and Johnny Ringo and many others at a local collectibles show. For the last 30 years or so he's been a teacher in Massachusetts, he is very conservative, very smart and very well spoken. He said that he was thinking about running against Ted Kennedy. I encouraged him and volunteered to help his possible campaign. I don't know how to contact him directly, but I bet if you send e-mails to howiecarr@wrko.com he will get them since he...

    Dennis Hopper should be hopping mad, some Hollywood actors said this week. Hopper, who organized The Creative Coalition's Ball after the Ball Thursday night as part of the activities surrounding President Bush's inauguration, apparently got a surprise phone call from the Presidential Inaugural Committee Wednesday night - telling him not to come to his own party. "I feel terrible that the White House inaugural committee that invited Dennis decided to disinvite him," "Sopranos" actor Joe Pantoliano told reporters at the event, where the entertainment - aside from mingling with some of Tinseltown's stars - was singer Macy Gray. Hopper reportedly...
