    The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has raged for decades, and despite numerous attempts to broker peace, an end to the violence does not appear likely anytime soon. Opinions on both sides of the debate are fierce and passionate, and nearly everyone has feelings of some kind regarding the geo-political situation.

    It’s no surprise that many Hollywood actors and actresses are on the left side of the aisle. But what is a surprise -- and a nice one at that -- is to see some of them stand by their ideology even when many liberals on Capitol Hill will not. Last Wednesday, while many Democrats on Capitol Hill stood silent on a big civil liberties issue, one major celebrity went on twitter to chastise some of his ideological allies. On an issue that they are both passionate about, the liberal actor John Cusack -- the star of films like “Being...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Hollywood director says she's working with actor John Cusack on a movie about conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. Director Betty Thomas said Cusack's production company has a script ready that will star the actor as Limbaugh. It's not typecasting: Cusack is an outspoken liberal. Production is set for next year, Thomas said. The working title is "Rush," Cusack's New Crime Productions confirmed Friday.

    At the outset, two points to bear in mind: 1. Dissent infuriates liberals. 2. As far as they’re concerned, everyone’s business is their business. When my wife returned to our car in the parking lot of B.J.’s, there was a note on the windshield: “How sad that someone filled with so much hate has a child. May God bless and forgive you.” Here’s looking down at you, kid. The verdict (doubtless from someone who considers herself non-judgmental) was prompted by anti-Obama bumper stickers and a child’s car seat, which the snoop spotted. That she was looking in our car is...

    John Cusack's Imaginary War Profiteers By Steven Zak FrontPageMagazine.com | 6/6/2008 From the safety of his stateside home, actor John Cusack has produced, co-written and stars in a movie, "War, Inc.," deriding firms like Blackwater, whose employees, at great personal risk, provide a service to their country in time of war. Since they make money, he brands them "war profiteers" who deserve to be treated as criminals. In an interview in the Los Angeles Times, Cusack assails corporations that profit during war. "Corporations have privatized the war to the point where the war itself is the cost-plus business," he rants....

    CHICAGO (AP) - John Cusack's motivation for his latest film grew out of something he did not see - flag-draped caskets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Pentagon policy bans media coverage of America's war dead as their remains are returned. The administration of U.S. President George Bush has strongly enforced the ban, something Cusack describes as "one of the most shameful, disgraceful, cowardly political acts that I've seen in my lifetime." So the actor started looking for a project that would illustrate "what happens when the coffins come home." While Cusack's motivation for taking the part are political, he insists...

    Two Valentine's Days ago, in the Style section, it was discussed at great length why women still think about Jake Ryan -- the cool-mannered, Porsche-driving, completely fictional hunk from the 1984 teen flick "Sixteen Candles." Then came the e-mail. Women (and some men) wrote in for months, mostly affirming this fantasy. One dreamer in Dallas talked about the lady down the street with toddler sons named Jake and Ryan. There was much linking and blogging. Even now, once in a while, Google will lead the Jakelorn our way. A New York documentary filmmaker came by last summer and set up...

    "But he gets just as jazzed talking about politics, journalism and Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show." That show, in fact, is central to a blog entry he posted earlier this month on The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-cusack/), one in which he excoriates the Democrats for not assuming moral leadership in light of the Bush administration's actions as "criminally incompetent robber barons now raiding the present and future." " "On being attacked from the right as a Hollywood liberal: "So maybe I'm smug, and maybe the Democrats are petty. Maybe you're right. But you're ordering people to their deaths. How are those...

    Hollywood star John Cusack has attacked filmmaker Michael Moore for failing to support the Democratic party in the last American presidential elections. Moore, who won the Best Documentary Oscar at this year's Academy Awards for his anti-gun film Bowling For Columbine, threw his backing behind left-wing candidate Ralph Nader in the 2000 elections - but Cusack believes that he should have joined him in tactical support of Democratic candidate Al Gore instead - to ensure Republican George W. Bush was beaten. Cusack explains, "He lost a lot of credibility when he went and campaigned for Ralph Nader because he was...

    <p>Expect the big-screen version of ``Runaway Jury'' to hit hard on the gun-control issue -- certainly if Dustin Hoffman has anything to say about it.</p> <p>Davison points out that all the jurors are well-known actors in ``The Runaway Jury'' jury. He says the story is layered with what's going on in court and what's going on behind the scenes among the jurors -- including a corrupting bid from John Cusack's character to sway the verdict for big cash -- making for several different points of tension simultaneously.</p>
