A delegation of silver screen and TV actors are taking part in a visit to Israel this week, during which they will meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres.
Already on their trip, the group has met with Palestinian Authority leaders in Ramallah.
At a press conference in Tel Aviv on Thursday, the actors spoke about their impressions of Israel, including their visits to the rocket-battered town of Sderot, an Ethiopian absorption center and the Yad Vashem museum in Jerusalem. All expressed a great deal of enthusiasm about visiting Israel, though their excitement appeared to be tempered by some serious travel fatigue.
The week-long trip is being led by the “Creative Coalition,” a politically active group made up of American entertainers, in collaboration with the American Israel Education Foundation, an organization affiliated with AIPAC.
The actors on hand at the press conference included Patricia Arquette (True Romance and TV’s Medium); Richard Webb (known as “that guy from Wings”); Richard Schiff (Toby from The West Wing); and Rob Morrow, who played a Jewish doctor in Alaska on Northern Exposure in the ’90s.
Patricia Arquette spoke first, saying
“as actors I feel that it’s important for us to say that the arts are for all people and we are nondenominational and that applies to Israel as well.”
“We look forward to learning about the Arab side of the conflict as well and how we can as human beings bring art as a healing force.”
Variety reports that Murray, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Patricia Arquette have all come aboard the film which also includes Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza and Katheryn Winnick. ‘Charlie Swan’ stars Sheen as a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have made him irresistible to women, but his life soon downward spirals into doubt, confusion and reflection when his girlfriend breaks up with him, leading Charlie on the road to self-evaluation. Winnick will play said ex-gf while Plaza plays Marnie, a producer who works with Swan at his company, Swan Design. As for the rest of the roles, they remain unspecified.
September 15th, friends of GiveLove – including Neil Patrick Harris, David Arquette, Balthazar Getty, Joaquin Phoenix – showed their support for GiveLove’s work, raising funds to bring training programs and support to some of the poorest communities across Haiti. “Every year, thousands of children die because of water borne diseases,” said Patricia Arquette, Founder of GiveLove. “The ongoing cholera epidemic has been catastrophic, we want people to know that we haven’t forgotten them and we haven’t forgotten Haiti.”
Imagine a city the size of Los Angeles with no safe drinking water and no bathrooms – the effect would be devastating. Toilets may be a taboo topic for some of us, but for Haitian children, men and women, a single clean toilet can be a lifesaver for communities. Founded by Patricia Arquette & Rosetta Getty, GiveLove provides more than 4,000 school children with access to compost toilets and helps numerous communities learn how to compost human and organic waste and to recycle it into nutrient rich soil. Compost sanitation prevents the spread of dangerous diseases and improves public health.

Me and Mediumfan are currently in a gallery-must-look-better-row and keep adding photos and instead of posting every update here I am giving a general heads up for everyone to head over to the gallery.
There are hundreds of new images at the gallery and more will be added so do drop by and look what gems we have found.
I am currently trying to get all the small film screencaptures changed into a more suitable large size so keep an eye on those as well.
Like always we would love to get suggestions on how to improve this site so if you have ideas let us know!
Wonderful post by Patricia Arquette on the White House Blog about the Champions of Change initiative.
I had the wonderful opportunity to go the White House and meet many of the Champions of Change, who are making great strides in incorporating strong arts curriculums into their schools. I was inspired by the principals I met with, and heard about how they were turning their low-performing schools around by incorporating the arts into the core subjects.
Study after study has displayed how a strong arts program keeps kids in school. This is especially important now when we have a 30 to 50 percent drop-out rate in certain areas. It was amazing to hear from these brave principals, who took action to incorporate those studies into practice, about the successes they are seeing. The children who were furthest behind are now making the fastest gains. Economically, it is a stitch in time—if we keep kids in school, they are less likely to find themselves in the prison system, or pregnant and a member of welfare. The Sphinx Organization program has placed many of its graduates in world class orchestras, which is a great testament to why it is important to keep music programs alive in schools.
I applaud the White House for focusing on these innovators and am grateful that I have had the chance to see these great Americans in action, pushing for success in our nation!
There is a long way to go, but this is the right path. Hopefully, many more will join in this walk toward a stronger America!

I’m so happy to announce CARGO’s affiliation with GiveLove! Give Love is a charity founded by Patricia Arquette and Rosetta Millington-Getty to develop temporary housing solutions and improved sanitation systems for the people of Haiti.
I had a great conversation with Patricia and was so moved by the work she has been doing that I immediately wanted to help. She spoke so passionately about the need, the work, the improvements being made, and most of all about dignity; about bringing dignity and hope to people who have encountered such misfortune. I often think that each tragedy is a call to each of us to step up. To do something.
Thank-you Patricia Arquette for so graciously answering the call. And thank-you for calling on CARGO to join you. We are honored. In turn, I am calling on each of you to join in. Donate to GiveLove (www.givelove.org). Click on the website and see for yourself how your dollars will be transformed into hope and into action.
Over the next few months, CARGO will be offering products for sale with proceeds going to GiveLove. We will announce these launches on our site and on our Facebook page. Again, we will invite you to join us in giving, in improving, and in celebrating the results when we work together to make a difference.
