The red carpet was rolled out this week at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood for yet another movie premiere, but it was also for a good cause!
The historic venue hosted the premiere of Snake & Mongoo$e, the story of two rival drag racers who changed the world of racing forever!
But it wasn't all about the glitz and glamour as they teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help raise money for blood cancer research!
Tons of stars like Jesse Williams, Noah Wyle, and Ian Ziering came out to promote the new film and to also show their support for the amazing charity organization!
Way to go, guys!

Noah Wyle, who starred with the actor on ER, was also arrested today during a political protest against Congress cutting Medicaid in Washington D.C.!
The actor was with 100 other members of the group ADAPT, a group attempting to protect the elderly and those with disabilities from being forced into nursing homes, instead of being able to afford home care!

Such a worthy cause!
Keep standing your ground, guys!
