Hollywood to solve middle east problem

The creators of South Park once foresaw a world where actors played a major part in fighting against - and for - terrorism in Team America - World Police. Now life is imitating puppetry - it's just a million times lamer.

A visit to Iran by a delegation of Hollywood types, including actress Annette Bening, is in jeopardy after being criticised by a representative of the Iranian Government for taking part in movies that were insulting to Iran.

Bening has previously spoken out about Sarah Palin. Now I guess she will be speaking out on behalf of Iranian women or, to take a specific example, the upcoming stoning of Ashraf Kalhori. Or at least about the importance for artists to have freedom of expression - right?
