A-MAZING!

A few weeks ago, we mentioned that we couldn't be prouder of the Hollywood community for supporting the L.A. reading of Dustin Lance Black's VERY important Proposition 8 play entitled 8.

As a reminder, the play explores the case filed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) to overturn Proposition 8.

Now, we're THRILLED to announce that Brad Pitt has joined the already star-studded cast for 8, which features the following talented actors:

We couldn't be prouder of the Hollywood community right now. Seeing this amount of star power band together for such an important production just makes our hearts sing.

We're hearing three more names have been added to the already star-studded cast list for Dustin Lance Black's play 8, which explores the case filed by AFER to overturn Proposition 8 Chris Colfer, Kevin Bacon, and John C. Reilly will join previously announced George Clooney, Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison and Martin Sheen for a one-night performance on March 3rd at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in LA.

If this doesn't raise the kind of awareness this case needs, nothing will. We're very proud to see this production gain such momentum.

Matt B. will read the role of plaintiff Paul Katami, while Matthew M. will read for plaintiff Jeff Zarillo.

Remember how baffled we were when Lindsay Lohan somehow slithered her way into the J. Edgar premiere's after-party at the Hotel Roosevelt?
