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.

Last month, we were THRILLED to hear that George Clooney will be performing in the L.A. reading of Dustin Lance Black's play 8, which focuses on the federal case challenging Prop 8.
Now, we've learned that White Collar star Matt Bomer and GLEE star Matthew Morrison will also be performing alongside George! YES!!!!!!!
Matt B. will read the role of plaintiff Paul Katami, while Matthew M. will read for plaintiff Jeff Zarillo.
As we mentioned before, the one-night-only event, which is being directed by Rob Reiner, will take place at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre on March 3rd, AND it will serve as a fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights.

Even though he has no aspirations to run for office, George Clooney is still MORE than willing to get political for an issue he cares about!
Last night at the Critics' Choice Awards, George opened up about the crucial issue of gay rights.
Here's what he had to say about it:
George Clooney is da man!
The A-lister is the first actor announce his participation in the Los Angeles reading of Dustin Lance Black's play 8, which focuses on the federal case challenging Prop 8.
Although Clooney is not known for his stage work, it sounds like he was willing to take on a role because the subject matter is something he's very passionate about, saying:
Remember how baffled we were when Lindsay Lohan somehow slithered her way into the J. Edgar premiere's after-party at the Hotel Roosevelt?
Well, apparently we weren't alone - because she wasn't supposed to be there, and her desperation to get back into the industry's good graces not only caused a scene, but made the real A-listers in attendance uncomfortable!
See! That's what their lunch meeting with Dustin Lance Black was all about! Prepares you can all put your dirty, dirty minds to rest.
As the Twilight Saga is finally meeting its end, the Holy Trinity of Twilight can start thinking about what they want to do next with their careers. Right now, Kristen Stewart is weilding a sword in Snow White and The Huntsman and Robert Pattinson just finished going crazy in Cosmopolis. But what is Taylor Lautner's next move? Turns out, he's got his eye on an arthouse piece.
The official announcement
Class, let's review:
Quite some time ago, Taylor Launter was spotted having a lunch meeting with Dustin Lance Black and Gus Vant Sant. It was obviously innocent enough, just a friendly meeting of the minds, possibly talking about a new project and what not.

One such person was the writer for GQ Australia who interviewed Tay Tay last month and asked him just about that meal. Specifically, he asked if either Dustin or Gus made a pass on Launter, who politley insisted that they didn't.
Well, Dustin is a little more seasoned with handling this sort of questioning, so after reading the artcle, he took to his personal blog to let this writer have a taste of his own medicine. He wrote:
