Chris Colfer, Kevin Bacon, and John C. Reilly Join Cast of Prop 8 Play in Los Angeles


Kevin Bacon, Chris Colfer and John C. Reilly are the final cast members to be announced for the one-night-only Los Angeles production of Dustin Lance Black's Prop 8 play '8' on March 3.

They join George Clooney, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Lynch, Martin Sheen, Matt Bomer, Campbell Brown, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Cleve Jones, Christine Lahti, Matthew Morrison, Rory O'Malley, Yeardley Smith and George Takei.

Writes the Hollywood Reporter: "Reilly will play United States District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker, who found Proposition 8 unconstitutional after presiding over the historic twelve-day public trial.  Bacon will play Charles J. Cooper, the lead attorney for the anti-marriage proponents of Proposition 8. And Colfer will play Ryan Kendall, who testified about his experience being sent by his parents to so-called “reparative therapy” as a teenager."

As I mentioned late last week, we're giving away a pair of tickets to see '8'.
