Actors like Billy Baldwin to Pretty Little Liar's Troian Bellisario are just some of the celebrities speaking up about an election cycle that's playing out like a Hollywood movie.

"I am completely overwhelmed and so totally inspired," said Bellisario.

"He's a complete buffoon, and I have known him for a long time, and he is completely unfit," said Baldwin.



From those who trash Trump, to moderates like Breaking Bad's Dean Norris.

"I think the toxicity that has been injected into our political life is just that, it's toxic and it's bad," said Norris.

And even Bernie supporters.

"Now I am very much for team Hillary, and I am with her and I really want to make sure she gets in the White House," said Bellisario.

The star-studded group is part of the nonpartisan Creative Coalition, promoting the arts and entertainment, and various platforms at the DNC.

"I am an advocate for immigration reform and many other issues that I'm very passionate about, human rights, civil rights," said Diane Guerrero, Orange is the New Black actress.

And although the A-listers exude a certain star power, in some ways they are just like the rest of us, faces in a crowd, watching a historical moment that crosses party lines.

"I was a big, ugly crier last night. I thought what Bernie Sanders did in nominating Hillary was so gracious and such a unifying moment. And I think even he felt the history of the moment," said Elizabeth Banks.
