Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle And Other Marvel Stars To Headline Fundraiser For Wisconsin Democrats – Deadline
With the midterm elections just days away, Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, Rosario Dawson, Natalia Cordova, and Clark Gregg are on the bill for a fundraiser for Wisconsin Democrats.
The online event, billed as “The Marvel Cast Unites To Save Democracy,” is the latest in a line of cast reunions that the state’s party has hosted, driving up online small-dollar donations.
The event on Sunday evening has no ticket price, but the invite advises that most donors are chipping in $27. Also appearing will be Mandela Barnes, seeking to unseat Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI). More guests are expected to be added in the coming days.
“We are going to fight for the safeguard of American democracy against these nutjobs,” Ruffalo said in a video promoting the event.
Ruffalo, who plays Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a longtime political activist and was born in Kenosha, WI.
Earlier this month, Wisconsin Democrats hosted a reunion of the casts of The West Wing and Veep that raised almost $700,000. In the last cycle, the party hosted reunions of the casts of Princess Bride, raising about $4.25 million, and also hosted Parks and Rec and Superbad fundraisers.
