As the man who brought us Pretty in Pink's Duckie, you might expect Jon Cryer to have a special affinity for those born on the wrong side of the tracks: the poor, the outcast, even the sexually ambiguous. However, it's apparently his role in Hot Shots! that Cryer identifies with most, because he turned up this week at a fundraiser for another easily downed Naval pilot: presidential candidate John McCain. In fact, according to Fox News, McCain met on Monday with a veritable Who's Who (no, seriously: who?) of Hollywood celebrities at the Beverly Hills Hilton in an attempt to solicit money from the group he hates the most. After the jump, the list of celebs in attendance (there's no Dennis Hopper, but trust us, you don't want to miss it):
Says Fox News:
While Barack Obama has the majority of Hollywood backing his candidacy, McCain had his own small cadre of celebs in attendance tonight. Among those that were spotted: Stephen Baldwin, Pat Boone, Wilford Brimley, Dean Cain, Jon Cryer, Robert Duvall, Angie Harmon, Patricia Heaton, Lorenzo Lamas, Craig T. Nelson, Gail O’Grady, Jason Sehorn, Gary Sinise, Jon Voight. “I would like to thank so many brave and courageous people who are here that happen to be in the business of Hollywood who are risking their entire futures and careers,” McCain added. Noteworthy: Tori Spelling was also dining at the Beverly Hills Hilton Monday evening but did not appear to be there for the fundraiser.
That is noteworthy (see what you've driven her to, 90210 producers? See??), but not as noteworthy, perhaps, as the former host of Are You Hot? acting as a celebrity endorsement for the party of "family values." Also: Superman? Say it ain't so! Still, in the end, we must reluctantly agree with McCain: is there anything braver than the sight of a megastar like Stephen Baldwin risking his "entire future and career" to stand up for what he so dimly believes in?
