Morgan Freeman and Jack Black Tell Congress to Approve Iran Deal So We Don't End Up 'Super Dead'

Posted on

Ever wonder what Jack Black thinks of President Obama‘s nuclear deal with Iran? No? Well, you’re about to find out anyway.

In a new YouTube video produced by anti-nuclear group Global Zero, the comedian – along with fellow actors Morgan Freeman and Natasha Lyonne and ex-CIA agent Valerie Plame, Queen Noor of Jordan and retired U.S. Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering – urges Americans to support the recently signed deal, which would prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon for at least a decade.

The alternative, according to Freeman? We’ll all wind up “super dead.”

“The agreement currently on the table is the best way to ensure Iran doesn’t build a f—— bomb,” adds the Oscar winner and longtime Obama supporter.

The president’s historic nuclear agreement with Iran, which was reached earlier this month, is facing major opposition from the Republican-dominated Congress.

Obama on Monday called out GOP leaders for their criticism of the deal, calling Gov. Mike Huckabee‘s controversial Holocaust comparison “ridiculous if it weren’t so sad.”

“Do me a favor,” says Orange is the New Black‘s Lyonne in the new viral clip. “Don’t let some hot-headed member of Congress screw this up.”

“Because playing politics with our national security isn’t all that funny,” Black says.
