Hey, for some strange reason I'm really interested to know where entertainers (actors/actresses, musicians, etc.) stand in politics. I know of some who are out there but not others. I would like the posters on the BBS to help me and list whatever celebrities you know and their party affiliation. Thanks guys.

I believe it was David Lee who said that being a Hollywood conservative isn't so bad since every third one gets to be President of the United States.

Speaking of David Lee, though, I believe Kelsey Grammer is a Republican.

Oh, and the delectable Emma Caulfield (Anya on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is reportedly a Republican.

Other than that, I believe you're looking at a fairly short list:

Tom Selleck, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwartzenegger, James Woods, Chuck Norris, Pat Sajak, Danny Aiello, and, of course, the greatness that is Ben Stein.

Ever since they put her on the list apparently.

They list some "John Kerry Supporters" on the site, too. It's interesting to me that each list contains a Vampire Slayer (Eliza Dusku for Kerry. Sarah-Michelle Gellar for the Republicans) and one of the two 1980s Famous Heathers (Heather Thomas for Kerry. Heather Locklear for the Republicans).

Here be the link:

I think people can be Canadian and Republican, Sam.

Some of the one's you put a question mark by that I happen to know. I'll look up some others later:

Bob Gale - Film writer and producer. Most famous, in my mind, for writing Used Cars and Back to the Future

Dr. Phil McGraw is Dr. Phil from the TV.

Kim Komando is a computer guru who, I believe, hosts a radio program dealing with computers. Not really an "entertainer" per se, in my opinion.

Tracey Scoggins was also on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman with Dean Cain. She was the woman who wasn't Lois Lane.

Paul Harvey is a radio commentator that really, really old people listen to. I wouldn't consider him an entertainer, either.

Rick Dees is a DJ who did the Weekly Top 40 for a while and was on Hollywood Squares a lot in the 1980s.

Okay, I've looked up the ones I didn't know:

Amy Holmes - Even if I told you, you still wouldn't know. But appears to be a political commentator more than an entertainer, so strike her off the list with Ann Coulter.

"Big Daddy" Jeff Wayne is a comedian. I suppose in the style of those Redneck comedians that are all the rage these days.

Anna Zetchus Raetz is a "filmmaker" from Jersey. But appears to be one who hasn't actually made it yet, so if I don't count, then neither does she.

Art Linkletter is still alive.

Betsy Hart appears to be another commentator, so off the list she goes.

Carol Gargaro is a nobody.

Catherine Coulter writes suspense triller romance novels, apparently.

Couldn't find a Cheryl Lass. Could be Cheryl Ladd, but might not be.

Claire Berlinski is a novelist.

Darcy Olsen is not an entertainer that I can see. So off the list she goes. She's a politico.

Debbie Brannigan is the founder of CapitalistChicks.com so, therefore, does not count as an entertainer in my book.

Debbie Schlussel is a little known commentator, so she's out.

Ellie Michaels does cheesy Republican music, apparently. I wouldn't count her.

Emilio Navaira is a Tejano music up-and-comer.

Emily Pataki doesn't count. Works at Bloomberg TV. Is the NY Governor's daughter.

Gabrielle Reilly is an ugly model.

Fred Dalton Thompson was a Senator, yes, though I think of him more as the tower chief from Die Hard II. He was an actor for years before becomming a Senator.

Clinton did hang out at Greg Norman's house. That's where he hurt himself falling down a step or something.

India Allen is a former Playboy Playmate turned bad actress.

Jeff "Skunk" Baxter is a composer for television and movies. He did the music for "King of the Hill" on FOX.

Joe Bonsall is a cajun musician

Joe Cooper is too common a name to know who they're talking about.

Kirsten Anderson is either a painter or an accountant. Either way, off the list.

Linda Davis is too common a name to know for sure, but may well be one of Reba's back-up singers.

Lionel Chetwynd is a movie and TV writer.

Lisa Kennedy is the former MTV VJ who used to just be Kennedy.

Lori Cole may be a game designer, so she doesn't count.

Michelle Malkin is a columnist and writer. Shouldn't count.

Monica Crowley is a radio commentator. Doesn't count.

Morgan Brittany is an actress with a long list of credits. I've never heard of her, though.

Nancy Bright is a singer of some sort.

Nathan Bexton is a young actor with several credits, including such films as "Go" and "Psycho Beach Party"

Rachel Alexander is a columnist. Doesn't count.

Rachel Marsden writes political columns. Doesn't count.

Robert Davi is one of those actors you'd recognize if you saw him. He's been in a ton of stuff, and as soon as I saw his picture I said to myself "Oh, it's that guy")

Sara Evans is a country singer

Shera Danese is an actress.

Steve Marmel is a cartoon writer/producer. "The Fairly OddParents" is the most recent one I noticed.

And you didn't put a ? by him, but John Milius is a screenwriter. I believe he wrote Apocolypse Now.

Tracy Byrd is, I believe, a country singer

Yvette Rachelle is a model.

Anyone else, I couldn't find them.

As recent as the last general election, I might add. In Florida (Dade County... relatives there told us as much, go figure), and in *New Mexico (shoot in NM, they had dead people voting in more than one county... live ones did it too! I had a guy tell me that he drove to three counties to vote Gore! And he wasn't kidding..:eek: He owned property in each county and was registered under variations of his legal name... *we were living in NM then, I heard the Dem's bragging about "beating the system." The whole state was inches away from also being recounted. We had a missing precinct ballot box in ABQ for about 10 hours... then when it was counted there was about a 99% Gore vote count in that precinct, swinging the vote by about 1% in ABQ toward Gore... fuzzy math indeed. So much for a "lock box." And oh, you can shove your hanging chads!! ):p



BTW- All of these "doesn't count" people in the "list" of republican "celebrities?" If they are breathing, actual people that make it to the polls come E day... they'll count.;)

You want names and addresses? Or would you rather be a man about it and just call me a flat out liar to my face?

I have no reason to lie about first hand information that I lived through personally... just to share it with people that will shred it apart based on doubt they have no reason to have other than partisanship. I can handle you doubting it, but mockery? Silence is golden...

Why would I make that up? I lived in NM. I have an Uncle & Aunt in Florida... what?

Think I care whether or not you really believe it? No. But save the mockery for the President.

Stay your course.

Dead people voted and falsely accused felons did not, in Florida in 2000.

I never said the whole election wasn't shady. But see, unlike some around here, I only speak in first hand terms about stuff I went through... first hand. Other crap, I link to.

You don't have to lie to make friends, well at least I don't, and I have plenty of friends.

Gallo's blue moves on Sunset

Vincent Gallo's 'Brown Bunny' billboard promises to shock.

Call out the tow trucks: A 60-foot black-and-white billboard showing Chloe Sevigny pleasuring Vincent Gallo was unveiled Saturday on Hollywood's Sunset Blvd.

The steamy and controversial ad, plugging a notorious scene in the upcoming "X-Rated Adults Only" flick "The Brown Bunny," which opens next month, went up near the famed Chateau Marmont Hotel. Wonder what they'll charge for a room with a view.

"The film is about a broken-down love, so I thought...this image represents a lot of conflict," Gallo told us. "I feel that there is an extremely complicated subtext to what they are doing."

Morning commuters might not be the only ones getting a shock from the picture. Gallo, who also wrote, produced and directed the film, said he "doesn't think Chloe has seen [the image]."

(We sent a copy of the billboard with a request for comment to Sevigny's agent, but no response was forthcoming.)

And Gallo thinks this should just be a start: "Chloe is one of the most beautiful and talented people in the world; she should be on 10 billboards on Sunset Blvd."

However, local leaders - many of whom view the billboard as pornographic - are threatening to protest the promo and are promising to bring it down.

Gallo is now in New York and says he will attend the Republican National Convention later this month.

"I'm here trying to help out in any way that I can. I have made it clear that I am open in any way to promote and protect the Republican administration," he said.

Well, the GOP, which openly supports and courts the Religious Right, might very well greet him with a chorus of:

"Mr. Gallo, tear down that billboard!"

I certainly wouldn't expect Bono to be a Republican. My question had to do with the fact that he just doesn't seem like the kind of guy I see choosing to become an American citizen. I can see him spending a significant amount of time here and even being interested in what's going on politically (and, yes, I also see him being more in line with the Democrats), but not a US citizen. It makes sense for someone like Alex Trebek, but Bono seems more like a "citizen of the world" kind of person.

No, that is not correct. No black voters were turned away. And this issue was well debated here last Fall and no links/proofs were found. This has turned into an urban myth.

As long as you don't mind that I now like Jennifer Garner. :)

You didn't like her before? What is wrong with you?

I guess I won't be watching Alias this year. :)

I can't believe Terry Semel gave $25,000 to the RNC. I'm sure that's a drop in the bucket for the former head of Warner Bros, but I guess I'm surprised he would be a Republican (or at least give that much money to Republicans. One doesn't have to be a Republican to give money to them).

Ron Rifkin gave 2 grand to Kerry, so it looks like both Sloane and Sydney are Dems. :)

On a tragic note, it appears that Mary Hart from Entertainment Tonight donated to the GOP. That sucks, since I really hate that woman. I was hoping she was a Dem.

Drew Carey and Clint Eastwood, among others, are libertarians.

And series creator J.J. Abrams gave $2K to Howard Dean.

Of course, if I quit watching every show that had a bunch of Democrats on it, there wouldn't be much left to watch.

I saw Larry David gave $50K to the DNC, along with $2K each to Dean, Gephart, Kerry and Edwards. That's a serious Democrat... But I'll still watch 'Curb'.

By the by, here's a link to a pic of the new love of my life, Joanna Garcia:

I've pretty much decided that I can appreciate people's music and acting without regard to their political affiliation, but when it comes to some who are such egregious blowhards (Al Franken comes to mind) that even I am unable to overlook it. If I wasn't able to overlook people's ridiculous views, I'd dislike Jack Black and Will Ferrell, hate DMB music, and not want to listen to the sweet sax of Joshua Redman.
That I can not do. Good entertainment is exactly that.

Yeah, I honestly can divorce the actor's political views from his or her entertainment value. For example, I probably couldn't disagree with Tim Robbins and Alec Baldwin more politically, but they are two actors whose work I often seek out and enjoy more often than not.

I really sort-of expect people in Hollywood to be Democrats. It's actually only surprising to me when I hear of someone who is not.

And while I will joke around about it, I don't particularly care what an entertainer's political persuasion is beyond it just feeding a curiousity.

It's no secret that Larry David is a Democrat. They've mentioned it repeatedly on Curb Your Enthusiasm. The reason it doesn't bug me with him though is that they have a lot of fun with his political views on the show. The affirmative action episode being a perfect example. I also dug the Season 4 episode where he and Cheryl tried to portray themselves as ultra right-wingers in order to be accepted into a country club.

Oh, and regarding his generosity to all the candidates, keep in mind that dude banked hundreds of millions of dollars from Seinfeld, so that's pocket change to him.

I know it's a drop in the bucket, but it's more than the average entertainer is apparently willing to give, many of whom have done quite well financially themselves, which is really what surprised me (that and the willingness to give the personal maximum to several candidates rather than picking one and backing him).
