Through the years, a long list of Hollywood elites have been bewitched by Castro, despite his Communist regimes imprisonment of political opponents,homosexuals, and journalists. Actors like Jack Nicholsonand Danny Glover, and Hollywood directors from Steven Spielberg to Oliver Stone, have accepted invitations to the tiny Caribbean island and have showered Castro with praise. Below is a list of some of the entertainers who haverubbed shoulders with the deceased dictator:

    In the darkness the warehouse looks like any other, a metal-roofed hangar next to a clattering overpass, with homeless people sleeping nearby in the shadows. But inside, workers quietly unload black plastic crates filled with merchandise so valuable that mobs have looted delivery vehicles, shot up the windshields of trucks and hurled a rock into one drivers eye. Soldiers and police milling around the loading depots give this neighborhood the feel of a military garrison. [] The fight for food has begun in Venezuela. On any day, in cities across this increasingly desperate nation, crowds form to sack supermarkets. Protesters...
  • 'The Last Face': Cannes Review [Sean Penn falls hard on his face]

    A backdrop of Third World atrocity, suffering and merciless human-rights violations serves as the canvas for a faux-profound Hollywood love story in Sean Penn's stunningly self-important but numbingly empty cocktail of romance and insulting refugee porn, The Last Face. Beautiful movie stars rugged, earthy Javier Bardem sporting flawless, bedroom-chic stubble, and iron butterfly Charlize Theron, wearing dewy no-makeup makeup and an excellent moisturizer battle for 130 stultifying minutes to listen to their hearts while their souls take a hammering. Audiences are more likely to check out and just leave them to it....

    UPDATED: Sean Penns humanitarian romance The Last Face is being savaged on Twitter after premiering Friday at the Cannes Film Festival. Commenters on social media are describing the film, which stars Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem, as the worst of the fest. Others are also quipping that the picture is so awful that it destroyed Penns relationship with Theron. The duo broke up a year ago. When critics weighed in, they largely echoed the flash reactions that bubbled up online.

    Left-wing activist, an El Chapo sympathizer and frequent Chavez-Castro advocate, says he will be backing Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump this election year. Sean Penn, profiled in this weekend's Financial Times, told its media editor Matthew Garrahan that he has little use for the GOP's presumptive billionaire nominee. "It doesn't matter what Trump says because all he is doing is selling," the actor said.

    It appears that the freed Iranians in our latest felons for hostages swap are refusniks: they refused to go home to their beloved Iran. That’s right, they decided to stay right here in the good old US of A enjoying the freedoms guaranteed by our constitition. Because America needs a few more illegal alien felons roaming about. The good news: at least none of them are known terrorists. Still, they are free to roam about the country continuing their lucrative careers by jeopardizing national security, violating (newly imposed) trade sanctions and hacking into unsecured servers in the former Secretary of...

    It’s been just over four months since Sean Penn met with the world’s most wanted drug lord, and things aren’t going as the actor had planned. “My article has failed,” Penn told CBS’s Charlie Rose in an interview that will air on 60 Minutes this Sunday. The Oscar winner was referring to the 10,000-plus word screed detailing his meeting this October with notorious Mexican cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, and the events leading up to it. Rolling Stone published Penn’s article this past Saturday, following Guzman's capture six months after his Hollywoodesque escape from a maximum security prison this...

    Actor Sean Penn said in a Friday preview of an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" that his article based on a secret interview with then-fugitive cartel leader "El Chapo" "has failed" to achieve his goal of sparking conversation about the War on Drugs. Penn met the notorious Sinaloa Cartel leader, whose real name is Joaquin Guzman, back in October with the help of Mexican actress Kate del Castillo. His story for Rolling Stone went live on Saturday, one day after Mexican authorities announced the fugitive's capture. Journalists immediately criticized the piece. "I have a regret that the entire discussion about...

    If there was any crime committed in the making of Sean Penn's Rolling Stone interview with Mexican druglord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman - and rest assured, federal authorities are inquiring - it's the murder by slow, excruciating torture of the reader's patience. Before ever reaching Penn's Q&A with the cartel chief-cum-international fugitive, one must endure 9,000 words - yes, Nine Thousand - of Penn's sanctimonious, self-indulgent, violently purple, and generally grammatically dubious prose. Example: >>>I'd offered myself to experiences beyond my control in numerous countries of war, terror, corruption and disaster. Places where what can go wrong will go wrong,...

    Folks are furious at actor Sean Penn and Mexican-American actress Kate del Castillo because they got chummy with El Chapo, the notorious drug kingpin rearrested last Friday. Why exactly is that? Penn was not "acting" as a journalist, he was one when he and the soap star bravely entered the jungle and risked physical and financial harm to pursue the huge exclusive interview with the fugitive who was the most wanted man in the world. I would have done it. And I would have kept my mouth shut if I promised the source that I would keep my mouth shut...
  • In El Chapo Interview, Sean Penn Opens Himself Up to Some Legal Problems (Sean = Federal witness?)

    If U.S. federal officials have their way, El Chapo will most certainly be extradited to face drug trafficking charges in the United States. And one of their important witnesses in this case could end up being actor Sean Penn. The Feds could potentially issue subpoenas to force Penn--and his crew--to testify against the drug kingpin--if they aren't already cooperating.

    A senior White House official described as "maddening" Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's boasts about sending illegal narcotics to America, but he declined to say Sunday if actor Sean Penn faced potential legal liability for meeting with the fugitive drug kingpin. Denis McDonough, the White House chief of staff, was asked on several TV talk shows Sunday about Guzman's recapture on Friday and the surprising disclosure that Penn had interviewed him at length in October for a potential film project.

    Mexican authorities want to speak with U.S. actor Sean Penn and Latin television star Kate del Castillo, a Mexican law enforcement official told NBC News Sunday. The revelation came a day after Rolling Stone published a secret interview that Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman apparently gave to Penn while on the run. The official also said that investigators were able to learn details about Guzman's whereabouts by intercepting phone conversations between Penn, Del Castillo and the drug lord.

    Mexico Seeks to Extradite ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán to U.S. José de Córdoba and Dudley Althaus Updated Jan. 9, 2016 5:24 p.m. ET MEXICO CITY—Mexico will act on U.S. requests to extradite captured drug lord Joaquín Guzmán, the government said Saturday. Mr. Guzmán, known as “El Chapo” or “Shorty,” was recaptured Friday after escaping from a maximum-security prison in Mexico in July. Mr. Guzmán faces federal indictments in Chicago and in six other U.S. cities for drug trafficking, money laundering and other crimes, such as homicide. The U.S. has filed two extradition requests with the Mexican government, which has ruled the...

    Mexico's government aims to fulfill a request from the United States to extradite the newly-recaptured drug lord Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman to face drug trafficking charges, sources familiar with the situation said on Saturday. The Mexican Attorney General's office will be working as fast as possible to establish the path to extradition, and Chapo could be extradited by mid-year, one of the sources said. However the timing will likely depend on any injunctions filed by Guzman´s lawyers.
