Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has made no secret of his affection for The Princess Bride – the 1987 cult classic starring Robin Wright. But he’s now making it clear he’s no fan of a plan by cast members to stump for Democrats in Wisconsin next week.
According to a web post by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, several cast members including Wright, Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Billy Crystal, and others will reunite for a live-streamed script reading and a question-and-answer session moderated by comedian and actor Patton Oswalt.
“Do you hear that Fezzik? That is the sound of ultimate suffering. My heart made that sound when the six-fingered man killed my father. Every Princess Bride fan who wants to see that perfect movie preserved from Hollywood politics makes it now.” pic.twitter.com/mbUs4y6Ro0
