Well, I have been looking over this link here en.wikipedia.org... for famous Freemasons, but there a too many to sift through.

So, I was just interested in who are confirmed or rumored Freemasons in Hollywood? eg, Actors, Directors, Producers etc...

Short of typing in everyone's name by hand I linked you to a page at Masonicinfo.com that lists both famous Masons and people who are mistakenly thought to be famous Masons.

In short, Ernest Borgnine, "Kramer" from Seinfeld, and "Balki" from Perfect Strangers.

Yes, if the Masons are running Hollywood, it's those three... obviously.

Is Michael Richards (Kramer) still a mason even after that Laugh Factory incident? You would think the masons wouldn't want to associate with a racist.

As far as I know, the following are/were Freemasons

Confimed:

Mel Gibson (Actor)
Leonard Cohen (Singer)
The late Patrick Swayze (Actor)

Rumoured:

Will Smith (Actor), but personally, I do not think so.

Can you source any of these? I'm not finding any concrete proof or admissions via google...

unfortunately, I am sad to say this, but there is some level of racism in Freemasonry in some parts of the country. One example is the case of Gate City Lodge NO.2 in Atlanta. The issue was not with that lodge who initiated a black member. The issue was with other lodges who did not think this was right and filled a claim or suit against that lodge for doing so. So there is still a small level of racism in some lodges because you cant make all people perfect and tolerant of others and that includes Masons.

I'll try...


Cohen is easy... Leonard Cohen sometimes mentions his membership in interviews. Here's an example (not a very good one, but I guess it'll do). He says: "I would love to be a great film maker, it’s a wonderful notion. I would also like to be a great mason, but I would like to find areas in which I can summon energy." (Source)

Cohen's lodge is Ionic Composite Lodge No. 520, Los Angeles, and he was WM of that lodge in 1993. (Their website)

I'm working on the other two - I know I convinced myself of their membership, but I can't remember where. Back soon...

OK, I can't find my sources for the other two anymore. I will continue to look for them, but until I find them, I'm happy to amend my list to the following:

Confirmed:

Leonard Cohen (Singer)

Rumoured:

Mel Gibson (Actor)
The late Patrick Swayze (Actor)
Will Smith (Actor)

Would a fervent Catholic Traditionalist (Gibson) be a Mason?

"Kramer" from Seinfeld

Haha, really? That's awesome.

I don't know if Kubrick was a freemason but he was obviously interested in secret societies.

No. It's a range of men of various ages (median's probably in the mid-late 40's but dropping) who try to improve themselves and society by doing good works.

If that comes off as "cool", more's the better!

Um... yes, I do believe it can mean that also.

I don't think "fervent" Catholics would generally become Masons (by Fervent I am assuming you mean zealous) .. but then again I've met a few pastors who were Masons, and I knew of a priest (never met him personally but he belonged to a friends lodge) .. the type of people that join is really far reaching.. You can never, ever, EVER judge someones potential beliefs by assumption based on other organizations they belong to. And not everyone gets into the Mystic aspects of Masonry.. some people join because they want friends who are like minded about things.. some join for charity.. some join to get out of the house.. and all those reasons are ok. People have their own reasons, we don't mandate any.

Yes I understand where you are coming from, but Gibson is no regular Catholic. He is a Traditionalist, meaning that he follows Pre-Vatican II dogma. The Tridentine Latin Mass, In Eminenti (probably) and all that stuff.
