Dennis Quaid Shares Why He Contributed to Docudrama About Efforts to Ban Free Speech, Says ‘Our Whole Culture Has Become Intolerant’

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – DECEMBER 04: Dennis Quaid

Award-winning actor Dennis Quaid is lending his talents to an upcoming docudrama on efforts to ban free speech.


Quaid and his band The Sharks released their first-ever studio album in November and it’s his rock song “Out of the Box” that will be featured in the film, “No Safe Spaces.”

According to the New York Post, the actor wanted to be a part of the documentary created by Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager because he fears Americans are becoming intolerant of opposing views, which is evident in Hollywood and on college campuses.

“It’s not just Hollywood. Our whole culture has become intolerant,” Quaid told the Post.

The 64-year-old explained that his song is about “being open to other points of view and not mindlessly giving yourself over to an ‘ism.’”

“I don’t give myself to any party or ism,” Quaid asserted. “I don’t march lock step with anything or anybody except for God and the values my mom taught me back in Texas.”

Quaid starred in the blockbuster hit “I Can Only Imagine” and spoke about his Christian upbringing during promo runs for the film. He grew up attending a Baptist church and was baptized at age 9. As he grew older he sought answers to the question: “Who is God?”

While he’s politically independent, Quaid will be portraying the late Republican President Ronald Reagan in a new movie and said he believes Reagan was the “best president of his lifetime.”

“If a president does great things I can acknowledge that no matter his party,” Quaid told the Post. “I’ve voted for candidates from both parties.”
