Tony-winning Actor Bill Irwin Joins Intact America's Board of Advocates
We're pleased to announce that film and theater star Bill Irwin has signed on to Intact America's Board of Advocates.
Having recently starred in Broadway's Bye Bye Birdie, Bill is known as a Renaissance man of the stage. In addition to his long-standing reputation as a Broadway mainstay (winning a Tony Award for his appearance in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf in 2005), he's also known for his vaudeville and clown stage acts.
You may also have seen Bill in the recent film "Rachel Getting Married," as well as several television shows. He's a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship as well as a MacArthur Grant. He may be best known as the clown featured in Bobby McFerrin's 1988 music video for "Don't Worry, Be Happy."
Intact America is thrilled to have Bill involved in the cause to end infant circumcision. "I am very honored to be asked to be part of Intact America's Board of Advocates," he said. "Intact America is asking people to look at our number one men's health issue -- and the first parenting responsibility that Americans face." Read Bill's essay on circumcision posted on David Mixner's blog.
Intact America's Board of Advocates consists of leaders in the arts, media, and entertainment communities who are willing to come forward and stand up for baby boys' rights to bodily integrity.
