”: either the entire cast and crew receive COVID-19 vaccines, or he’s not returning to work. Although NBCUniversal, “Gaslit’s” studio, imposed mandatory vaccines for “Zone A” cast and crew members (those in close proximity during production), and provided an on-site vaccination clinic for those involved with the production, Penn is putting his foot down. The actor’s representatives confirmed his decision to
Variety. Penn has offered to facilitate the mandatory-for-all vaccination effort, free of charge, through his nonprofit organization Community Organized Relief Effort.“Gaslit” focuses on the untold stories and forgotten characters of Watergate, from Nixon’s opportunistic subordinates, to the deranged zealots aiding and abetting their crimes, to the tragic whistleblowers who would eventually bring down the whole enterprise. Penn will play Attorney General John Mitchell, Nixon’s most trusted adviser and best friend at the time.
Julia Robertswill portray Martha Mitchell, the Arkansan socialite who was one of the first to publicly sound the alarm on Nixon’s involvement in Watergate, in spite of her affiliation to the president via her husband, John Mitchell.“Gaslit” is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, for Starz. Along with Robbie Pickering and Matt Ross, “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail — via his overall deal with UCP — and Chad Hamilton serve as executive producers under their production banner Esmail Corp.

Bye JAB BER WOCKY This is the only time in my life I've been anti-vaccine. guess he won't be returning to work anytime soon.. Good!!! Great move every Production should follow, thank you! Next move Productions should take is to hire working class actors who have been vaccinated for months, desperate for work to keep their insurance. Spread the wealth.
Their saying the lambda covid doest work with vaccine, it’s only to Protect you from delta covid. No nonsense clout Good.
Sean Hannity, who downplayed Covid, urges viewers to 'take it seriously'Fox News host Sean Hannity, who has spent considerable airtime downplaying the effects of Covid-19, urges his viewers to 'take it seriously.' It appears that after 6 months Republicans might have figured out that their strategy of killing off their own voters to try to sabotage the economy to hurt Biden contains a potential flaw. Whoopsie doopsie To little to late. I hope it weighs on your conscience, the sickness and the death that could have been prevented.
Good for him! Can I pull this at my work? Either Sean shuts the F up or we won’t buy his films. That work ? Nazi tactics, Sean. Nazi tactics. The kind of diva behavior I can get behind. Then just recast him Fuckin' guy rules! THAT'S HIS RIGHT TO WORK AS A GOD GIVEN AMERICAN PATRIOT BRUDDER 🇨🇺🇨🇺🇨🇺 This is how it should be for every job place.
Good LabadieLePacte « Stay home... be a hero ! » 😂 Such BS. You really want people to believe he is only around 100% vaccinated people? He doesn't go out in public? Sports, concerts, H-wood parties, fundraisers, etc? I've had the polio/ TB/ hep vaccines and I'm not scared of EVER getting these. So why are Covid folks scared?
Sean Hannity’s Clueless Question About Biden Gets Turned Right Back At TrumpThe Fox News host's attempted slam of Biden turns into a scathing reminder of the former guy's history. wow If FAXE 'news' wasn't funded by anti American interests, it would not exist. It is there solely to confuse the morons with repeated lies and filth A little bit of Authoritarian government is a good thing specially for Young people. Young people with no directions, doing all kind of bullshits are destroying the US.
Cinephemeride Good. Enough ignorance Bravo to Sean Penn. He’s using his privilege to protect the safety of his fellow cast and crew. If u have this level of power to compel change for the greater good, use it If you don’t want get vaxxed, you’ll miss out on a lot of things, including a job. Your body, your choice.
Bye... you are an an employee and not the employer. Find a new, better actor. There are plenty. real moral compass this guy has, my hero... What happened to my body my choice? not his business... Natural immunity better. Vaccine is failing after 6 months. What about recovered covid?
Make No Mistake, Vaccine Misinformation Is Still Thriving On Fox NewsDon't be fooled by that viral clip of Sean Hannity; Fox News hosts are casting doubt on the COVID-19 vaccine just as much as they always have.
Bummer. Now what will I do? seanpenndouchebag This is the most heroic thing he has done since ordering pizza to Mr. Hand’s room. ,,,,, let him go Get any other out ofwork actor to take his stupid assed place Looks like he’s 90 years old Why? Vaccines apparently don't work. The jelly head that calls himself the president is getting ready to mandate masks again including vaccinated.
Bye-bye! Mf looks like he’s 75 Finger on the pulse of America! Holy hell, a Watergate series.
Make No Mistake, Vaccine Misinformation Is Still Thriving On Fox NewsDon't be fooled by that viral clip of Sean Hannity; Fox News hosts are casting doubt on the COVID-19 vaccine just as much as they always have. TheView 🇺🇸 How can I be fooled by something I don’t care about. If you take any cable news seriously this is exactly what you deserve As they should. It's called 'journalism'
Why is anybody working with this guy again? Good for you! 🧐 Imagine being a privileged millionaire actor, & deciding to force the dozens of common people working under you to make a choice that you decided for them or they will be fired (because he won't be.) Hollywood liberal privilege. Regular ppl not allowed to make their own choices
This should be the standard for all film sets. Full vaccination of everyone. If you don’t want to be vaccinated, find another project. rkylesmith What a hero 🙄 “ he never worked again for the rest of his life, and they all lived happily forever after” I hope every single actor does this. Tough love is needed.

Conservative Pundit S.E. Cupp Calls Out Republicans For Killing Their Own VotersRight-wing COVID-19 vaccine misinformation 'has inarguably cost lives,' she said. Biden: “You’re not gonna get COVID if you get vaccinated” (He says this as fully vaccinated WH staff are testing positive) Does this knowledge help in any way? She is courageous! There should be consequences for misinformation that costs lives. Lawmakers should be held accountable if they make claims that go against the well being of their constituents/voters.
