Superstar George Clooney came out in support of gay and lesbian rights as he became the first actor to accept a role in Dustin Lance Black’s Los Angeles production of “8,” which reenacts the courtroom drama of the Proposition 8 trial.
“It is astonishing that gay and lesbian Americans are still treated as second-class citizens,” Clooney said. “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.”
The Huffington Post adds that the “Oscar-winning actor will appear in the one night only event on March 3rd at LA’s Wilshire Ebell Theatre, leading an as of yet unnamed cast of co-stars in a Rob Reiner-directed production.”
