When “The Wrap” writes a headline like this

Team Obama Rallies Young Hollywood for (Yet Another) Celebrity Fund-Raiser

…you know the President has an image problem.


Barack Obama’s reelection team is once again enlisting help from Hollywood to keep the incumbent president in office for a second term.

This time, POTUS is seeing some positive returns on his recent efforts to cultivate ties with younger entertainers, as a group of stars from the under-40 set (or favored by that demographic) are banding together for a June 29 fund-raiser in Los Angeles.

The event will be spearheaded by a lineup of industry players – including directors David Fincher and Darren Aronofsky; actors Zach Braff, Ian Somerhalder, Zachary Quinto and Maria Bello; and musicians Pete Wentz, Kenna and Peter Frampton — according to the Hollywood Reporter [4].

Author Neil Strauss, CAA agent (and Reese Witherspoon’s husband) Jim Toth, and actresses Maggie Q and Connie Britton are also reportedly on the co-host list for the evening.

A person with knowledge of the event confirmed to TheWrap that the fund-raiser was set for next Friday, but had no further details about the guest list, venue and the president’s potential involvement.
