Steven Spielberg's War Horse is getting lots of award season buzz ahead of its Dec. 25 release, but his cast of hot British actors should be getting equal press! We sat down with three of Steven's male stars, Tom Hiddleston, Patrick Kennedy, and Toby Kebbell, at the recent NY junket. The guys could be familiar faces already. Tom starred in both Midnight in Paris and Thor, and Patrick earned UK fame in the BBC's most recent adaptation of Dickens's Bleak House. Toby, meanwhile, had roles in Rocknrolla and Prince of Persia. None of that previous experience prepared the guys to land a role in a Spielberg film — find out what crazy things they did when they got the excellent news!
Senator Barack Obama secured a huge endorsement from Democratic icon Senator Ted Kennedy. Teddy just delivered a stirring speech, hitting Hillary Clinton on all of her talking points regarding experience. The electricity in the room was palpable even for those watching from the other side of the television camera.
Senator Kennedy, often alluding to his brother President John F. Kennedy, said he has always planned to
"Support the candidate who inspires me, who inspires all of us, who can lift our vision and summon our hopes and renew our belief that our country's best days are still to come."
Caroline Kennedy, the sole survivor of President Kennedy, and Representative Patrick Kennedy joined in the Obama lovefest. The Kennedy endorsements will aid Obama on a national and local level. As the battle for delegates moves to congressional districts, the Kennedy stamp of approval may help local leaders feel confident endorsing Obama.
Does the Kennedy endorsement make a difference to you?
