Bacon and Colfer join Clooney in Prop 8 play

Clooney and Martin Sheen were among the first to sign up to star in the Milk writer’s new work, entitled 8, which focuses on the Proposition 8 legislation which overturned the legalisation of gay unions in the state.

Organisers have now confirmed Clooney will be joined by Bacon and Colfer, as well as Chicago star John C. Reilly, for the one-off performance at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles on 3 March (12).

The performance, directed by Stand by Me helmer Rob Reiner, will raise money for the American Foundation for Equal Rights.
