The Arlington-based H.E.R.O. ("Hollywood lives...Heartland values") would like to let Hollywood know that this "speaking out against Iraq" nonsense has exposed them for what they arepeople who pretend to be other people in film and television! From a press release responding to Screen Actor's Guild President, Melissa Gilbert's statements that she was concerned about the possible return of a McCarthy-era "blacklist": "...what hasn t been talked about much is the other reason people are angry. Actors that we have grown up with, and watched every movie they made, actors like Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Martin Sheen, Barbra Streisand and others have 'stepped out of their make believe roles.' In some cases, their outspoken views have forever changed the perception that the movie going public has for them. We can t look at them the same anymore, the wall between make believe and reality is shattered."
