Anti-War Stars On New Card Deck
SEAN PENN, BARBRA STREISAND, MARTIN SHEEN, SUSAN SARANDON and GEORGE CLOONEY are starring together in a new project - a deck of cards featuring war-opposing celebrities.
The stars join the likes of EDWARD NORTON, TIM ROBBINS and OLIVER STONE on THE WEASELS cards, which depict 54 celebrities and politicians wearing IRAQI REPUBLICAN GUARD berets, accompanied by an anti-war quote.
Marine MAJOR DOUG CODY and CAPTAIN MARCUS BRADSHAW came up with the idea for their deck - similar to the DECK OF DEATH featuring those at war with America - while watching the conflict unfold from Washington DC's PENTAGON.
Cody says, "I don't begrudge anyone their right to express their opposition to the war... but the people on the cards went above and beyond what I thought was reasoned or principled opposition."
Cody, who's selling the cards through THANXFORNOTHING.COM, with some of the proceeds going to military charities, adds, "It's an involuntary way for the celebrities to give something back."05/06/2003 21:21
