The cross-country Pro-Peace March, with many celebs joining in for global nuclear disarmament, doesn't begin until Saturday. But Richard Rifkin, a volunteer marcher, is already trying to peddle the rights to his story.
Rifkin, who describes himself as a writer-actor, placed a trade-paper ad offering producers an option on his upcoming nine months of "adventure, romance, humor . . . all for the continued existence of humanity." He told Outtakes that he'd be keeping a daily diary "and, of course, photos."
Is he worried that some might see his sales pitch as exploitive? No, because "I've invested (in the cause) from my heart. Anyway, someone's going to write it. It might as well be one of the marchers."
