Benjamin McKenzie is Team Obama

Benjamin McKenzie grabs lunch with a friend on Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles on Friday.

You can catch Ben, 29, starring opposite Al Pacino in his next project 88 Minutes, out April 18th.

But if you can’t wait until April, good news! McKenzie will make an appearance in the follow-up remix video of the Barack Obama “Yes, We Can” Song by Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am.

Also set to appear in the video are Jessica Alba, Ryan Phillippe, Macy Gray, Black Eyed Peas’ Tabu and Beyoncé (if her schedule clears up). Expect to see the video released on the Internets soon!

Yeahhhh…
You are a good guy Benjamin for having choice too support the best candidate Mr. OBAMA!!!!

I’m glad he is a democrat!

Yaaaaaaaaaaay
I love Ben! And He looks so good in this pics *-*

He is looking good. I guess he’s got a lot of time to rest.

What an idiot supporting Obama, justlike every other ignorant, brainwashed celeb out there.

I knew after the OC was over so would his career. The majority are flash in the pans. Even Adam Brody has disappeared.

It’s the PC thing to do now, to say you’re behind Obama, cuz otherwise you’re labeled a racist. Can’t wait until the Republicans have a go at Obama. He’ll be the one crying to get votes come the fall, like Hillary was.

i still love him!

can anybody tell me who adam is supporting? i miss his pictures here.seeing mischa and ben made me want to see adams new pic more now.

Underrated actor

Adam imo is probably supporting Obama. He and Ben have similar views in politics.

His hair looks good. I hope he gets some work soon.

Who the hell cares who any actor/actress is supporting? If that is what you base your vote on, you shouldn’t even be voting.

Awwww ben pictures!

Thanks jared

thought he was republican and he’s not aging well,but i would do him anyway.

omj oboma or whatevr????
ewwww
goo Republicains!!!!!!!!!!
oh yea, boooooo hillary!
hey i have a joke:::
ok so hillarys husbands name is bill right??
well take hillarys first part of her name is HIL then Bills but add Y to it so it =’s HILBILLY!!!!!!!!!!!
hahaha im so funny!

All of you people who really think Obama is the better candidate are f ucking stupid. The man has plagiarized 3 different speeches. Don’t any of you realize he is full of s hit? Every move, every word is so calculated. It’s all bull s hit. If Obama becomes the next president, we are some serious serious trouble. And to any of you who would like to reply to this, don’t. Because you’re a f ucking idiot.

Yuck! Obama boo

VOTE HILLARY!!

i use to love his old hair..

Your post is BS. We all are supporting Obama because he is the best candidate for the job. ALL THE WAY OBAMA!

You’re not just silly, YOU’RE STUPID too. If people were supporting Obama to not be labeled racists, they would just be silent about it. Nobody has to advertise who they are supporting. They are supporting Obama because he is the best candidate for the job.

I LOVE RYAN!!!!! so much! im so pleased to see this.

He looks Asian WTF?????

I HATE “Celebrities” telling me how to vote. Wtf is this? Dont they know what happened when all these stars rallied around john kerry? HE LOST

Im voting for clinton anyways.

I always love to see Ben and he’s looking good here. Thanks for posting this.

good to know he is still alive!

This movie still hasn’t been released? I watched it over 1 year ago, when it was first released here in Brazil on DVD! I didn’t like it, and Ben doesn’t even have many scenes, which is too bad, ’cause that girl Leelee Sobieski ruined the whole movie!

Anyway, I don’t really have a problem with celebs who support candidates, it’s their choice, it doesn’t affect me whatsoever.

WTF? That video has been out forever, what’s wrong Jared?

Go to YouTube and find it…

I thought you posted it before?

OH, REMIX…

My apologies, I read it wrong…

ben is a good actor.Go Obama.

If you compare Ben in Junebug to Adam and Rachel(especially Rachel) he played a character quite different from Ryan in Junebug. Props to him. At least he’s making an effort to take on challenging roles.

Rachel gets all the magazine covers but she is Summer in every single role she’s played. She was Summer in Last Kiss and Jumper. Adam too is so much like Seth Cohen in his movie parts.

Ben is intelligent and politically astute. If he thinks that Obama is the way to go then I’m with him.

Aside from that, it’s great to see him out and about. I just wish that he was working more. He was clearly the most talented of the OC cast and I’m keen to see he get some of the recognition that he deserves. He carried the show for so long. It’s wrong that the others seem to be getting more roles than he is, although I suspect that maybe he’s a little more choosey than they are.
