White House Kicks Off Health Care Star Search

President Obama is hoping health care reform will get by with a little help from his friends. Later today, the DNC will announce a slate of celebrity judges tasked with selecting a new pro-health care reform TV ad from entries sent in by activists across the country.

The contest was first announced last week by Organizing For America and ends 10/18. The full list of celebrity judges will be announced today, but CNN already has a few:

Musician Will.I.Am, actor John Cho, actress Rosario Dawson, actor Dulé Hill, “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, actor Brandon Routh, actress Kate Walsh and actress Olivia Wilde will join Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine, DNC Executive Director Jen O’Malley Dillon, Rep. Patrick Murphy of Pennsylvania, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe and volunteers in helping to pick the 30-second commercial that will air nationally.
