George Clooney and President Obama - the latter of whom took time out of his year end news conference to say Sony's decision was a mistake.
"I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all out assault on a movie studio on a movie starring Seth Rogen and James Franco," the President stated. "I love Seth and I love James, but the notion that was a threat gives you a sense of kind of regime we're talking about here."
