Barack Obama recruits Sarah Jessica Parker

Thursday November 5, 2009

Sarah Jessica Parker has an exciting new role - the Sex and the City actress has been hired by President Barack Obama to advise him on the arts.

The Hollywood star, pictured shooting the second SACT film in Morocco,  is one of 25 new appointees to the president's arts and humanities committee.

It also includes Forest Whitaker, Edward Norton and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Among Sarah's jobs will be raising cash for after-school arts, and nominating projects that encourage Americans to take an interest in culture.

"The arts are not just a nice thing to have or to do if there is free time or if one can afford it," said honorary chair of the committee, First Lady Michelle Obama.
