(Newser) – Some of Hollywood's biggest names are lining up behind Roman Polanski, but Chris Rock is not among them. On last night's Jay Leno Show, Rock ridiculed the notion of defending the fugitive filmmaker because of his art. "He made good movies 30 years ago. Even Johnnie Cochran don't have the nerve to go, 'Well, did you see OJ play against New England?'" He added, "Thirteen is thirteen." New York points out that Kirstie Alley, on Twitter, was the first celeb to blast Polanski publicly.
