Josh Harnett To Give A Hand To Africa: Josh Hartnett is the latest celeb to lend his support to Africa. “I want to go down there and actually help out,” the actor, who wants to help children, said at an event for Dramatic Need, a organization of volunteers that teaches art, film, dance and photography in Africa, Britain’s Press Association reported. “It’s fun for an actor to be able to do something that’s not for publicity, but actually go down and do something hands-on,” he added.
