Dog the Swag: Save our Seals

saveourseals_325.jpgYes, that is Tom Arnold. From PR about “television celebrities” who posed for pics kissing baby seals on behalf of the Humane Society. “Teri Hatcher hit up Sundance 2007 for a week full of outrageous swagging, but she also stopped to show some love. This time, it wasn’t her hunky BF Stephen Kay (whom she was all over the whole week), but the Humane Society’s Baby Seals. Hatcher and a host of other celebrities visited The Green House in Deer Valley for Après Ski Swagging with The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) as one of the sponsors… Other celebs were also THRILLED to sign a pledge asking the Canadian government to stop the seal hunt.” [Continued at the jump.]

Celebs who signed were:
Sienna Miller
Molly Shannon
Kelly Cole
Denise Vasi
Patricia Kara
Tom Arnold
Donovan Leitch
Kerr Smith
Matthew Lillard
Timothy Hutton
Isabelle Fuhrman
Brian Tee
Sienna Miller put and also agreed to let the Humane Society use her name in a full-page ad to the Canadian government. Even musicians Steve Kerr of the Sex Pistols and William Tell showed their support for the humane Society. The HSUS chose to migrate their cause from the ice floes of Eastern Canada to the mountains of Park City, UT to rally celebrity support to stop the annual seal hunt which begins in March.

“I think [technology has[ its made my life faster, it’s made the ability to succeed easier. But has that made my life better? Is it better now than it was in the eighties or seventies? I don’t think we are happier. Maybe because I’m 55, I really am asking these questions… I really want to do meaningful things! This is also the time that I really want to focus on directing. I think that I will act less and less. I’ve been doing it for 52 years. It’s a long time to do one thing and I feel like there are a lot of stories that I got out of my system that I don’t need to tell anymore. I don’t need to ever do The Accused again! That is never going to happen again! You hit these milestones as an actor, and then you say, ‘Now what? Now what do I have to say?'”

“If there’s one rule Hollywood has metaphysically proven in its century of experimentation, it’s that there’s no amount of money you can’t squander in the quest for hits.

“Netflix has spent the past couple years attempting to brute-force jailbreak this law. Its counter-theory has seemed to be, sure, a billion dollars doesn’t guarantee quality but how about three billion dollars? How about five billion dollars? Seven?

“This week’s latest cinematic opus to run across no-man’s-land into the machine-gun emplacements has been the Jared Leto yakuza movie ‘The Outsider.’ Once again, debuting on Netflix, another thing called a movie that at one glance doesn’t look like any kind of movie anyone has ever seen before, outside of off-prime time screenings at the AFM.

“If you’re working at a normal studio, you have one or two of these total misfires in a year and people start calling for your head. How many is Netflix going on? Fifteen? Twenty? This quarter? Any normal company would be getting murdered over results like that.”
