Tim Robbins, The Lucky Ones

As an Oscar-winning actor (Mystic River), acclaimed director (Dead
Man Walking
) and political activist, Tim Robbins is
often slotted with his longtime love Susan Sarandon as one
of Hollywood's most visible - and vocal - liberals. But just
because his new film The Lucky Ones is about three soldiers
home from duty in Iraq, Robbins hopes audiences won't assume it
is a political screed. Robbins emphasizes the entertainment and
humanity, not politics, of his work. But during this sitdown at the
Waldorf-Astoria there's no mistaking who he will be working for this
election season when he exits by saying: "Go Obama."
