Cause of the day
Wrestling has always been part of actor Billy Baldwin's life. With the sport's future in peril, Baldwin is hoping his fame and Hollywood connections can help keep it on the Olympic program. Baldwin, who wrestled at Binghamton University before a long career in television and films, has joined USA Wrestling's Committee to Preserve Olympic Wrestling as a self-described "Hollywood point person." Baldwin said that he has enlisted his brother Alec Baldwin, Ashton Kutcher, Steve Buscemi, Mario Lopez, Mark Ruffalo and others in Hollywood, plus sports heavyweights like Wayne Gretzky, Magic Johnson, Janet Evans and Carl Lewis, to help.
