Jodie Foster, Gavin Newsom, James Franco to appear at UTA rally for immigrant rights

A who’s who of Hollywood stars will crowd the streets of Beverly Hills today for a rally in support of immigrant rights.

Jodie Foster, Michael J. Fox, Wilmer Valderrama and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom are all set to deliver speeches at the Oscar weekend “United Voices” rally, according to United Talent Agency, which organized the rally.

“The gathering — ‘United Voices’ — aims to express the creative community’s support for freedom of speech and artistic expression, and stand against policies of exclusion and division,” the talent agency — better known as UTA — said in a statement.

Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, James Franco, Perez Hilton, Seth Rogen and Aisha Tyler will also attend.

UTA represents some of the biggest names in movies and television, including Franco, Angelina Jolie and Oscar-nominated Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi.

Farhadi, who is nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category for “The Salesman,” said late last month that he would not attend the Academy Awards because of President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily banning travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iran.

The filmmaker and previous Oscar winner (“A Separation”) told The New York Times he had planned to travel to Los Angeles for the awards show but changed his mind because he believes the travel ban is “unjust.”

“It now seems that the possibility of this presence is being accompanied by ifs and buts, which are in no way acceptable to me even if exceptions were to be made for my trip,” Farhadi said. “I hereby express my condemnation of the unjust conditions forced upon some of my compatriots and the citizens of the other six countries trying to legally enter the United States of America.”

Days later, UTA surprised the entertainment community by announcing it would scrap its annual Oscar gala. Instead, the agency said it would hold a refugee rally and donate $250,000 to the International Rescue Committee and the ACLU, which has been fighting the travel restrictions in federal court.

The “United Voices” rally is set to start at 3 p.m. outside UTA headquarters on Civic Center Drive.
