Lord Of The Rings - Astin Is Congressional Candidate's Campaign Manager

Lord Of The Rings star Sean Astin is venturing into politics by signing up as campaign manager for a friend running for Congress.
Astin is advising longtime pal Daniel H. Adler, an entertainment industry executive, as he runs for office next week (begs16May11) in the 36th Congressional District in California.
The pair has filmed a spoof of the actor's hit 1993 sports movie Rudy, in which Astin gives Adler a motivational speech before coaching him through exercises on the football field.
He tells Adler, "You've hung in there with the same politicians the system offers up year after year since you got into this campaign. In this life, you don't have nothing to prove to nobody except yourself - and the voters of the 36th District. So what do you say, champ? Are you ready for this?"
