George Clooney wrote up a petition to support The Interview, directed at his fellow actors, and is now telling Deadline that no one would dare sign it: "It was sent to basically the heads of every place. They told Bryan Lourd [Clooney's agent] , 'I can’t sign this.' What? How can you not sign this? I’m not going to name anyone, that’s not what I’m here to do, but nobody signed the letter." They were all too afraid, too afraid to publicly side with Clooney, who is basically every famous person's BFF: "This is just where we are right now, how scared this industry has been made ... Understand what is going on right now, because the world just changed on your watch, and you weren’t even paying attention."
His solution? Sony should release the film online and he will let them know: "I just talked to Amy [Pascal, the co-chariman of Sony Pictures] an hour ago. She wants to put that movie out ... Stick it online. Do whatever you can to get this movie out. Not because everybody has to see the movie, but because I’m not going to be told we can’t see the movie. That’s the most important part. We cannot be told we can’t see something by Kim Jong-un, of all fucking people."
