Bryan Cranston is doing what it takes to help his fellow performers. He will be hosting a celebrity poker tournament on November 12, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. (PT) to help raise funds for The Entertainment Community Fund. Other entertainers in attendance will include Jon Hamm, Andy Garcia, Jason Alexander, Mekhi Phifer, and more.

The Entertainment Community Fund is a national human services organization that serves the unique needs of performing arts and entertainment professionals. Bryan Cranston’s collaboration with the organization will result in Lights! Camera! Ante Up! Celebrity Poker Tournament.

The proceeds from this event will provide help to support film and television workers who have been affected by the ongoing stoppage.

Bryan Cranston said,

"” What you see on screen goes beyond the faces in the frame. Hollywood could not produce one TV show or movie without the artisans behind the scenes. This poker tournament is about supporting the incredible people my friends and I are so lucky to work with every day…just as the Entertainment Community Fund has been doing, for more than 140 years. Now, in this time of need, we band together and do what we can to support one another.”"

Annette Bening, Chair of the Board of the Entertainment Community Fund, said,

"The Entertainment Community Fund is beyond grateful for the continued support from our friends in Hollywood. Together, we’re dealing a winning hand to rhose who have illuminated our screens and stages for centuries. With every ante, we ensure that the Entertainment Community Fund remains a beacon of hope, surrounding our industry’s dedicated professionals through even the most challenging of times. Let’s raise the stakes, and the spirits, for a bigger future in entertainment.”"

Over the years, The Entertainment Community Fund has supported industry members through events such as the COVID-19 Pandemic, as well as the work stoppage. The Entertainment Community Fund has distributed over $9.9 million to more than 4.600 film and television workers.
