Prop 8 Trial Testimony Gets a Marisa Tomei Makeover
The Wall Street Journal
By Geoffrey A. Fowler
Today the Courage Campaign, an online organizing network for progressive causes, launched a Web site dedicated to re-enactments of the ongoing trial. At equalityontrial.org, they've posted videos of a handful of celebrities - including Oscar winner Marisa Tomei - giving dramatic readings of the court proceedings.
Acting in a West Hollywood park Tomei portrays Kristin Perry, one of the lesbian plaintiffs in the case seeking to marry her partner. Actor Josh Lucas plays Theodore Olson, one of the legal powerhouses supporting the challenge. The scene portrays the plaintiffs' argument that gays and lesbians face discrimination in their everyday lives.
