Glee Stars Were Touched That Brad Pitt & George Clooney Supported 8

As were we all! Nothing like the two hottest men in the world to bring the kind of audience and attention this production so definitely deserved.

The 2010 federal court case over Proposition 8 was turned into a magnificent production by Dustin Lance Black and this week, some of Hollywood's hottest stars stepped in to read pivotal parts for the play. Names like Jamie Lee Curtis, Christine Lahti, George Takei, John C. Reilly, Martin Sheen, Matt Bomer and Jesse Tyler Ferguson mingled with the Glee trio Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer and Matthew Morrison in the production, as well as marveled at the star power of Brad Pitt and George Clooney, who so happily offered their celebrity to the important piece.

Their work in the show not only inspired the audience, but their fellow cast members, including their friends from Glee. Following the performance, Jane raved:

“I was so moved that they care enough about this issue. I love that they took time out of their incredibly busy schedules to do this… to let the world know what went on in that courtroom. I was really touched and moved to see all these really big stars with fire power up there and advocating for our rights.”

While Matt echoed her sentiments, Chris added that he had more than a few jitters when it came to appearing on stage with Brad and George. He gushes:

”[It was] nerve wracking! I’m so glad I was playing someone young on trial, because otherwise I don’t know if I could have been like, stoic and played it off like Brad and George did. I was terrified.”

Yeah, we would've been too!

Perhaps this could be the start of a wonderful working relationship for you all. Perhaps this play will take off (we can only hope) and people will insist that it be put into production or something. Maybe there will be a time when you'll reunite to perform this piece again. And maybe in that time, gay marriage will finally become legal in the state of California.

Here's hoping.

    What courage our top actors have supporting gays.
    BFD.

    Couldn't be that they'd be blackballed and never work again in Hollywood, if they opposed this view, could it?

    The play was amazing just like Chris Colfer, that boy is to perfect!

    Re: luvs2hustle – I really don't think A listers like Pitt and Clooney would worry about being blackballed if they chose to stay away from this issue. Good for them for supporting a good cause.

    Re: luvs2hustle – It's the trendy cause these days, and with the way the gay mafia bullies and labels those who don't support the gay, it's easier for the spineless, overpaid twerps to go with the flow.

    Pitt and Clooney have to unzip to take a piss just like anyone else, and this fakie-fake celeb admiration fest makes me want to puke. "Like OH EM GEE I just was SOOO intimidated by their greatness." FFS get real already. Pitt is a marginal actor, and Clooney, though better than Pitt, needs to keep it in his pants every now and then.

    Re: luvs2hustle – and La Garse - Desperately grabbing at straws…there's always gotta be some excuse why you're right and there wrong right? always.

    Yes, his is a racist rant but the same war of the PCnazis and the GAYnazis, unless you're Bill Mahr and say c@nt all day about a Conservative.

    I have a question. Why were the Glee cast so touched. Most of them are supposed to be hetero, so why are they different from others. O'yeah, they have Jane Lynch and Ryan Murphy affiliated with that show, so they have to pander, it's in their contracts. Fucking GAY!

    Re: MaceWundu – At least I can use the language correctly, you moron, which makes me more right than you are. It's not "there wrong," loser, it's "they're wrong." Go get an education before you presume to lecture your betters on right and wrong, ass face. And FYI … gay is wrong. Don't care if you don't like it, and don't care if you don't agree. You're not smart enough to make a correct post, so you don't matter. Loser.

    I acknowledge that we have made progress, but in the past few years I feel like we have taken giant leaps backwards. I believe that we will eventually overcome this and the LGBTQ community will ultimately gain acceptance, and when that happens I hope everyone running around spouting useless Biblical passages to justify their hatred and bigotry, are ashamed of themselves.

    @Lagarse.. so if gay is wrong, what are u doing on a gay website??? feeling a bit curious maybe?? getting a little itch back there?

  11. @v@ says – reply to this
