The thesps are hosting the inaugural “Actors Fore Actors” event at the Lakeside Golf Club in Toluca Lake. Johnny Depp’s already onboard as a sponsor, and Bakula told Daily Variety that he’s hoping to generate more traction among other high-profile thesps and corporate sponsors amid the current tough economic times.
“It’s a good way to mark the 25th anniversary of the SAG Foundation, and it’s a good excuse to play golf on a work day,” he added.
Ron Perlman’s already onboard to participate, noting that Lakeside has a long showbiz history as the home course for Bob Hope, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. “I love the game of golf — I wish it were mutual,” Perlman said. “What we’re trying to do is get the upper echelon to focus on this event as a way to help those actors who haven’t been as fortunate.”
