Kyra Sedgwick, Kevin Bacon urge voters to show up for midterms(8/10/18) (Video) WASHINGTON D.C. — The waning months before the 2016 presidential election saw a flood of videos featuring celebrities urging people to vote and volunteer.
That is now happening again for the upcoming midterm elections this November.
On Thursday, Swing Left debuted a new video featuring Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, urging viewers to sign up for one of the progressive group’s projects, the Last Weekend. Swing Left has organized a coalition of 30 progressive groups aiming to line up volunteers for a final push before the Nov. 6 elections.
In the video, Sedgwick called the election “the most important midterms of our lives,” and tells viewers that “even if you live in a progressive stronghold, there are races all over the country near you.”
Swing Left also produced a video last month that featured Jane Fonda, Rashida Jones and Lily Tomlin.
“I am just terrified of where our country is headed,” Sedgwick said in an interview. She worked on the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama but said that she and other progressives were probably “lulled into a false sense of security” that much of his agenda could not be rolled back.
“I just feel we have gotten far off the path of what our forefathers — and women — meant for us,” she said.
She cited a host of issues, including the environment and abortion rights, as well as the rollback of business regulations, that have been of major concern for her, but also that “there has been no check on the power” that President Donald Trump now has in the White House. She also cited the Trump administration’s effort to roll back California auto emission standards, despite the support that the standards have from car companies.
Republicans have already been hammering Democrats for their links to Hollywood, trying to characterize the industry as the very cultural elite that Trump ran against in 2016. A recent Republican National Committee video, called “Unhinged,” featured a number of celebrities, including Kathy Griffin and Madonna, railing against Trump.
Sedgwick said that she understands why some entertainment figures are reluctant to get into the political fray. She does get some backlash comments when she tweets something political, but “I don’t care.”
“My business is to do what is right for this country,” she said.
The goal of the Last Weekend is to get commitments for 1 million volunteer hours in the last four days before the election.
“I feel like you sit around and feel really terrible and hopeless, or you can be part of the solution,” Sedgwick said.

Anthony Ray Dies: ‘Shadows’ Actor, Son Of Director Nicholas Ray Was 80(7/21/18) Anthony “Tony” Ray, the actor-producer son of Rebel Without a Cause director Nicholas Ray, died June 29 in Saco, Maine, following a long illness, his family has announced. Ray, who lived in Saco for the last 10 years, was 80.
A graduate of the Neighborhood Playhouse and a member of the Actor’s Studio, Ray was on the producing teams of such 1970s hits as The Rose, An Unmarried Woman, Harry and Tonto, and Freebie and the Bean. He was an assistant director throughout the 1960s and into the ’70s on TV series The Iron Horse and Bewitched, films Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, Cactus Flower, and, according to his family, Stanley Kubrick’s Spartacus and John Huston’s The Misfits, among other credits.
Ray, who often went by the name Tony Ray, also worked as an actor, his credits starting in 1957 with Men In War and an uncredited appearance in his dad’s 1957 film The True Story of Jesse James. Later, he’d appear in John Cassavetes’ Shadows (as pictured, above, with co-star Lelia Goldoni), soap opera Search for Tomorrow, and primetime TV’s The Twilight Zone and The Untouchables.
According to his family, Ray Cape retired to Cape Neddick, Maine, in the late 1980s, and subsequently created a film program at Emerson College and directed the International Film and Television Workshop in Rockport, Maine. He was a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Director’s Guild of America and Screen Actors Guild.
Though born in Washington, D.C. to Nicholas Ray and writer Jean Evans, Ray grew up in New York City and later lived among Hollywood’s biggest stars. In 1948, his father married actress Gloria Grahame, divorcing four years later. In 1960, the 23-year-old Anthony Ray married the 37-year-old Grahame, his former stepmother, in Tijuana, Mexico, scandalizing Hollywood when the news went public and damaging the actress’ career. They divorced in 1974.
Ray is survived by his wife Eve; daughter, Kelsey; and son, Tony Jr. A service to celebrate his life will be held in the autumn.

Susan Sarandon: I was arrested during immigration protest in DC(6/30/18) Susan Sarandon said she was arrested Thursday after participating in a protest on Capitol Hill against the Trump administration’s approach to illegal border crossings and the separation of immigrant children from their parents.
“Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting,” the actress tweeted without offering any further details.
Capitol Police did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
However, Sarandon was back on Twitter a mere three hours after she said she was arrested.
“Powerful, beautiful action with hundreds of women saying we demand the reunification of families separated by immoral ICE policy. This is what Democracy looks like. #WomenDisobey,” the 71-year-old tweeted.
The actress joined hundreds of women in the protest, which was organized by the Women’s March and the Center for Popular Democracy. They demanded for migrant families who had been separated at the border to be reunited.
Prior to her arrest, Sarandon retweeted other women who attended a sit-in style protest held at the Hart Senate Office building.
Women at the protest wrapped themselves in foil blankets to mimic the silver blankets that were seen in photographs of migrant children taken at detention centers.
