Brad Pitt in '8' - Live Stream & Rehearsal Pics!

Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Martin Sheen pose together during a rehearsal for their play 8 on Saturday (March 3) at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles.

8 was written by Academy Award winning writer Dustin Lance Black and chronicles the landmark federal trial of California’s Prop. 8 using the actual court transcripts and first-hand interviews.

Matt Bomer, Kevin Bacon, John C. Reilly, Glee‘s Chris Colfer, Matthew Morrison, and Jane Lynch, Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Book of Mormon‘s Rory O’Malley are also participating in the live reading.

Tonight’s event will support the mission of the American Foundation for Equal Rights.

    As Passing Through says, “Huvy is the hardest working agent for his client in Hollywood.” (Words to that effect! ). I guess he tried deflecting with his lame and probably untruthful…Aniston tells Gerry to get to rehab. Well, it did not work.
    Actually…you’re confusing the two. “Huvsy” is Stephen Huvane – the publicist. Kevin Huvane is Ticky’s agent. Huvsy’s the one I call “The hardest working man in show biz”. Kevin Huvane is a hard worker for his clients but there’s only so much he can do for Ticky. He can’t force producers and studios to hire Ticky for good movies. I’d go so far to say he’s advised Ticky NOT to take some of the crap she’s accepted. And for that she threw him under the bus and said he was trying “squeeze a few more acting years” out of her. If anyone’s trying to squeeze a few more acting years out of Ticky it’s herself – and Huvsy. If Ticky’s not acting then he has nothing to do. That chick is so effin’ stoopid. She can’t get a movie green lighted as an actor but someone’s going to give her $15-20MIL to DIRECT a movie? I always knew she was delusional but she’s needs to ask her shrink to change her meds because now she’s living in an alternate reality – one where she’s a highly sought after bankable actress that producers are running over each other to work with.

    don’t know if its true, story comes from Uk’s Sun:
    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are huge Olympics fans
    By GORDON SMART, Showbiz Editor/Published: Today at 02:20

    BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a huge interest in the Olympics – and not just because their kids could represent most of the countries taking part.

    The Hollywood couple have cleared their diaries to stay in London for the 16 days of the Games, which start on July 27.

    Angelina will be going to the opening and closing ceremonies with director Danny Boyle, who has put together the jaw-dropping shows.

    She was invited as his personal guest after signing up for his next film project at the end of last year.

    A source said: “Brad and Angelina will be living in London for the duration of the Games and intend to see as many events as possible.”

    They spent a large part of last year in the UK. They were holed up in Richmond, west London, and were regularly seen popping into town with their six kids and going to the local cinema.
    Brad and Ange are one of those rare couples who can actually afford to take the whole family to see a film.

    The tweets are really funny. I completely forgot about the play until amost an hour into it. I did manage to catch the last 90 minutes though. A little preachy, but given that it based on real testimony in a real trial that makes sense.
    BTW – LMAO at Kirck Cameron’s archaic bible-thumping anti-gay rant. I hate people who act like man didn’t write the bible and act like God dictated his scriptures into Dragon Speaks and someone printed it verbatim. He needs to pull the stick out of his ass…and to think he was such a cute kid back in the day. Now he’s just a narrow-minded homophobe making bad “Christian” movies…

    LOL. Isn’t the Sun the latest defendent in of the Newscorp scandal? This entire article is based on the fact that Brad and Angie will be in London for most of the spring and that Brad out-bid Angie at the Cinema For Peace Gala for a one-on-one with Muhammad Ali on the London Olympics.
    What’s really funny is that so far this week we’ve had stories claiming Brad and Angie will be in London all summer…and one claiming they’d be in Israel for a month while Brad shoots The Gray Man. Nobody knows where they’ll be or what they’ll be doing until they say. Until then it’s all speculation – funny speculation at that.

    annon Says:
    On Saturday, March 3, the Internet was treated to a wonderful live-stream of a staged reading for 8, a new play about the trial over Prop 8. The play, which consists primarily of transcripts from the trial where Prop 8, California’s ban on gay marriage, was overturned, was a sublime blend of drama, comedy and politics.

    What made the staged reading even more impressive was the level of talent they got. It starred Brad Pitt as the judge, George Clooney and Martin Sheen as the lawyers trying to overturn Prop 8 and Kevin Bacon as the lawyer defending it.

    The cast also featured Christine Lahti, Jamie Lee Curtis, Glee’s Matthew Morrison and White Collar’s Matt Bomer as the four plaintiffs. Various other characters, mostly witnesses in the trial, were played by Glee stars Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer, Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Grey’s Anatomy’s James Pickens, Jr., The Simpsons voice Yeardley Smith, The Celebrity Apprentice contestant George Takei, and John C. Reilly, among others.

    It was a tremendous production and you can watch the full stream of the play here.
