Cop Car’s Kevin Bacon Wants You To Join The Free The Bacon Movement

4 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Cop Car star Kevin Bacon has a bone to pick with you, Hollywood. Male actors are rarely given the opportunity to be gratuitously naked, and it’s not fair.

But that’s all going to change now with the #FreeTheBacon movement.

Find out how you can help in this funny video and join the movement.

(Mashable)

Kevin Bacon (The Following, HBO’s Taking Chance, Mystic River) stars in director Jon Watts’ delightful throwback thriller Cop Car.

When two good-natured but rebellious young boys (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) stumble across an abandoned cop car hidden in a secluded glade they decide to take it for a quick joyride. Their bad decision unleashes the ire of the county sheriff (Bacon) and leads to brutal consequences.

The film also stars Shea Whigham, James Freedson-Jackson, Hays Welford and Camryn Manheim.

Cop Car opens in theatres August 7, 2015 and On Demand and Digital HD August »

Kevin Bacon: Movies Need More Penises

9 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Gender equality and representation remains a major issue in entertainment, and one area where it is still an issue is on screen nudity. Though the scales have become more balanced in recent years, and naked bums from both sexes are shown fairly often, there still seems to be decidedly more flashes of vaginas and breasts than penises on the screen.

One of the pioneers famous for getting his penis out is actor Kevin Bacon and today the actor has participated in a mock PSA for Mashable demanding that the on screen male nudity movement is real and needs your support to 'Free the Bacon' - an effort he'd be happy to spearhead. It's an often hilarious 2.5 minute piece with Bacon making fun of himself and the current sexuality-absent state of movie making today.

Bacon himself is keeping busy in the wake of the cancellation of "The Following" with roles in the upcoming "Cop Car, »
