Celebrities?

Posted at 12:10 PM on September 2, 2008 by Molly Bloom (1 Comments)

MPR reporter Paul Tosto sends in this report:

At a press conference this morning, the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign promised celebrities for the afternoon march scheduled for 4 p.m. and that the celebrities would be prepared to go to jail if need be.

But as celebrities go, we're not talking Jane Fonda. Those initially listed included Rosario Dawson, John Ritter and Mark Webber.

Dawson's not bad, with Rent, He Got Game and Clerks II to her credit. But we were also told this morning she may not make it. John Ritter, star of the old Three's Company sitcom, died in 2003. We were told his son Jason Ritter will actually be the celebrity. Webber is a Minneapolis born actor whose biography notes he was once homeless and is now an advocate for the homeless.

Um, John Ritter is dead. That would be quite a sighting!
