It looks like the cast and crew of “Ocean’s Thirteen” got together for a little pre-party before the premiere of their new film. It’s glad to know that the gang has as much fun off set as they do on set. They are getting their partying out of the way, so they can use the Cannes premiere to raise awareness of the genocide in Darfur.

Actors George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Don Cheadle, as well as producer Jerry Weintraub, have agreed to use the premiere of the film to focus on what is happening in Darfur.

The group will use their website www.notonourwatchproject.org.

Producer Jerry Weintraub told Access Hollywood, “All the guys have been to the Sudan this year. They saw this huge genocide and nobody doing anything about it, Clooney got attention earlier, but it faded. We decided to dedicate ourselves to this. The thing I am most proud of by far is that these events will benefit a cause that is very important to me and my colleagues.”

It’s definitely well worth the focus. Thanks George!

    God Bless them, I love seeing actors doing positive things, and not just using their star power to get in the hottest LA hot spot.

    What’s happening in Darfur is evil manifesting itself on earth and people don’t do anything about it. Children are being murdered, dismembered, raped every second! But they have no oil, they are not christians and the world is just watching. Incredible!
