These celebrities think people should stop trying to ruin the Iran deal
Hearing Morgan Freeman narrate the perilous journey of “March of the Penguins” was pretty cool, but hearing him tell Americans why the Iranian nuclear deal is a good idea is even better. (YouTube)

In a new promotional video out this week by Global Zero, an international organization aimed at eliminating nuclear weapons, you can watch Morgan Freeman and a bunch of other celebrities explain why the Iranian nuclear deal is a good idea for everyone.
Iran and world powers reached a nuclear agreement earlier this month, but actually getting it set into motion hinges on a Congressional vote this September. And a lot of speculation is flying around about how that's going to turn out. We've already heard — impossibly loud and ferociously clear — how both US Republicans and Iranian conservatives feel about it, and that's not helping things (we're looking at you, Mike Huckabee).
Global Zero addresses just that. Familiar faces like Freeman, Jack Black, Jordan's Queen Noor and Orange is the New Black star Natasha Lyonne urging Americans to call on Congressional representatives to make sure the vote swings in favor of the deal later this year. An agreement would pave the way toward lasting peace with Iran, while ignoring it could lead to another full-blown war, the celebrities say, and war with Iran means everyone is "super dead."
"Do me a favor," Lyonne tells the camera. "Don't let some hot-headed member of Congress screw that up."
Check out the video below, because any clip that features both Black singing about Iranians and Freeman saying “super dead,” deserves a look.
