Hollywood opening up to the GOP...

Hillary, Obama, and the rest of the Democratic field enjoy lopsided support among the Hollywood crowd in terms of official endorsements and donations.

However, some very well-known Hollywood A-listers are opening their mouths and their wallets in support of Giuliani--some of whom have been uninvolved in politics up until now.

Adam Sandler, Ben Stein, Melissa Gilbert, Kelsey Grammar, Kevin James, Tony Sirico, producers Joel Surnow and David Zucker are publicly supporting Rudy Giuliani. Ron Silver recently signed on with Rudy's campaign as an official advisor and respected actor Robert Duvall shocked Hollywood with his first foray into politics--announcing that he plans to host a fundraiser in support of Rudy. Says Duvall: "Rudy has consistently proven he’s ready to confront tough challenges. I don’t normally get involved in politics, but I think the stakes are too high this election."

No other GOP candidate has attracted sizable support from Hollywood. Maybe this is a sign that Hollywood Republicans are more willing to come out of the closet now, especially since the stakes are so high in 2008.

So will Rudy come out of the closet with his Hollywood pals?
