The stars come out for another voting video



Leonardo DiCaprio is bringing out the big guns to get out the not-vote. Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Harrison Ford, Will Smith, Steven Spielberg and Justin Timberlake are among the celebrities starring in a new PSA produced by the actor, the AP reports.

As a follow-up to the 5 Friends PSA, the video shows the stars struggling to grasp the concept of using reverse psychology to get young people into voting booths (oh, that old chestnut!). Required by director Spielberg to say "don't vote," Roberts remarks, "That doesn't make sense." Cruise and Smith complain to each other, while Timberlake jokes, "I can do anything. I was in a boy band, okay?"

Finally, Ford, looking pretty darn old, says, "You know what? I can't do it. It's not true, I don't believe it -- 537 people decided the 2000 election, and you want me to tell people that one vote doesn't count?"

Ryan Reynolds, whose wife Scarlett Johansson also appears in the video, jokes "There are more Baldwin brothers than that." Also appearing: Cameron Diaz, Shia LaBeouf, Snoop Dogg, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, Zach Braff and Sacha Baron Cohen as his alter ego, Borat.

If you want to sit through the nearly 5-minute video, look above.
