Chasing Michigan: Celebs Getting Political
Movies aren't the only draw for celebs in Michigan these days. Michigan's status as swing state in this year's election has brought the stars out for Barack Obama.
Since September, Adrien Brody, Carole King, Bruce Springsteen and, as we mentioned last week, Sean Astin have all been speaking on college campuses and at rallies telling residents why they think Obama is the right choice for president.
The most recent celeb to jump on the Obama bandwagon is Forest Whitaker who spoke to 50 community leaders at the Flint Institute of Arts on Saturday. Flint was only one stop of many the Oscar-winning actor was making over the weekend as he toured the state in hopes of recruiting more voters for the Dems.
