Fun Stuff: Celebrities go vote crazy

Fun Stuff makes its triumphant return with a boatload of election-minded videos. American celebrities have long used their unproven influence to encourage their fellow citizens to vote and they’ve never gone as all out as this year, what with their Obama songs and all. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought Americans didn’t actually get to vote for their presidents? So what is it you do vote for?

The above video, titled 5 Friends for some dumb reason, features a boatload of celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Benicio Del Toro, Sarah Silverman, Dustin Hoffman, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Linney, Jonah Hill, Natalie Portman, Forest Whitaker, Djimon Hounsou, Michelle Trachtenberg, Demi Moore, Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Eva Longoria, Courteney Cox Arquette, will.i.am, Jamie Foxx, Amy Adams, Kate Bosworth, Kevin Bacon and several others.

The one below however, entitled The Muzzler, is much more low-key and features only Jessica Alba (ironically in one of her better performances) and Hayden Panettiere.

And if that wasn’t enough, Rosario Dawson wrote and starred in the four-part internet musical La Pasion De La Decision to encourage American latinos to vote, directed by her co-star Wilmer Valderrama.

Eva Longoria for Wasp?

Overrated beauty Eva Longoria (ABC’s Desperate Housewives) has recently visited Marvel Studios’ offices, leaving with a bunch of comic books and a business card, and apparently many believe she’s in talks to play Wasp/Janet Van Dyne in the forthcoming Avengers movie planned for 2011 and set up by various other comic book films such as Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.

Wasp is one of the first Avengers and a character I’ve surprisingly absolutely never heard of before. According to Wikipedia, Wasp’s abilities include size manipulation, flight, bio-electric energy blasts and telepathic insect control… Eva Longoria is certainly sexy enough (at least with makeup on) but what do you think? Are you looking forward to Eva floating like a butterfly, stinging like a bee?
