Andrew Breitbart's Big New Project: Big Hollywood

Fox News has the story here:

A once-timid group of social outcasts is emerging from the shadows in Hollywood. If the past year is any indication, Tinseltown may have to get accustomed to the loud presence of a growing minority.

After years of silence, conservatives are coming out of the closet.

Andrew Breitbart, the conservative founder of Breitbart.com and author of "Hollywood Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon," is launching a Web site he hopes will help challenge the status quo in what he believes has been a one-party, left-tilting town. Set to debut on Jan. 6, "Big Hollywood" will be a place where center, right and libertarian-leaning celebrities and industry-insiders can weigh in on Hollywood politics, offer film, television and movie reviews, and have an open forum for political discussion.

"Our goal," says Breitbart, who lives in Los Angeles, "is to create an atmosphere of tolerance — something that does not exist in this town."

Breitbart has invited a number of conservative politicians, commentators and journalists to write regularly about the cult of celebrity, liberalism in popular culture, and politics. Among the names who will be contributing, he says, are Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va), political commentator Tucker Carlson, and former Tennessee Senator and Republican presidential contender Fred Thompson. . . . .

Its been rumored that Robert Downey Jr. Robert Downey Jr. is a closet Republican.
Actor Dennis Hopper is a conservative.
Actor Kelsey Grammer is a conservative.
Actor Gary Sinise is an out-of-the-closet conservative.
Actor Stephen Baldwin is conservative.
Actress Patricia Heaton is a conservative.

I believe Jeanine Turner is also a conservative.

Penn Gilette is a Libertarian, but he produces some good content.

Thanks, Randy and Incognito. Incognito, Andrew is a great guy. I am sure that he would love to get in contact with various closeted Republicans in the business. If you would like to contact me, I would be happy to provide you with Andrew's contact information.
