C-grade celebrity hopes peace rally will re-invigorate career

[Edition 68] NEW YORK, Thursday: Danny Glover’s message to the New York anti-war rally today was simple: ‘No war’, and also ‘Give me a job’. “My much-beloved character in the Lethal Weapon series, Roger Murtaugh never made a preliminary strike against the unlawful,” Glover told the cheering crowd. “If only Bush and Blair were as entertaining and just a crime-fighting pair as Murtaugh and Riggs.”

Harry Belafonte: “Make movies with me in them, not war”

[Edition 68] NEW YORK, Thursday: Danny Glover’s message to the New York anti-war rally today was simple: ‘No war’, and also ‘Give me a job’.

“My much-beloved character in the Lethal Weapon series, Roger Murtaugh never made a preliminary strike against the unlawful,” Glover told the cheering crowd. “If only Bush and Blair were as entertaining and just a crime-fighting pair as Murtaugh and Riggs.”

“The world doesn’t need a war in Iraq. It needs peaceful initiatives like this rally, and a fifth instalment in the Lethal Weapon series,” he added.

Next on stage Janeane Garofalo agreed with Glover, announcing to the rally, “Peace, like the limited edition DVD of my superhero spoof Mystery Men, is a precious jewel that could easily be ours.”

Glover and Garofalo were joined by thousands of other ex-celebrities across the globe passionately fighting for their own recognition, including Ethan Hawke, Harry Belafonte and Mike Farrell, better known as B.J. Hunnicutt of TV’s M.A.S.H.

“I’ve been looking to promote myself with a cause for years,” announced Hawke. “Thankfully I’ve found a cause I’m famous enough to promote before my latest work Corso: The Last Beat comes out on cable.”

“With an audience of 500,000 this is better than Letterman. And unlike Letterman, these guys will have me.”
