George Clooney to Star in New Prop 8 Play

Always the hero, George Clooney is set to star in a new play by Dustin Lance Black called “8” about the overturned Proposition 8 gay marriage ban in California. 

The one night only event, held in Los Angeles on March 3rd at LA’s Wilshire Ebell Theater, will be directed by Rob Reiner and feature a reenactment of what happened in the courtroom during the federal trial.  

Set as more of a reading than a traditional play, Clooney and other cast members, who have not been named, will demonstrate the defense of gay marriage fought by former Solicitor General Theodor Olson and attorney David Boie. 

The Oscar-winning Clooney revealed in a statement that “It is astonishing that gay and lesbian Americans are still treated as second-class citizens. I am confident that, very soon, the laws of this nation will reflect the basic truth that gay and lesbian people — like all human beings — are born equal in dignity and rights.” 

You may recognize the play’s creator, Black, as he is also an Oscar winner for writing “Milk” starring Sean Penn about Harvey Milk and his struggles as an American gay activist, who eventually became California’s first openly gay elected official. This isn’t the first time Black has produced “8,” as he also did a production in New York City with Morgan Freeman, Ellen Barkin and John Lithgow 

Clooney never seems to stop dabbling in humanitarian causes.
