Actor Josh Charles believes everyone should be treated equally when it comes to marriage.

The 41-year-old Baltimore native is helping to raise funds for Question 6, the November 6 ballot initiative which asks voters to either uphold or repeal a gay marriage law approved by lawmakers.

Charles, who is best know for playing Will Gardner on the CBS legal drama The Good Wife, recorded a video for, the nascent group working on marriage equality issues in the four states where it will be on the ballot this year.

β€œEquality is important for everyone, period,” Charles says in the clip. β€œTo me, I think everyone should be equal under the law. And there should be no difference between anybody: gay, straight, black, white, Jewish, Christian, Asian. Doesn't matter to me, everybody should be treated the same equally. I just have always believed strongly in that.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

The actor recorded the video during a New York City fundraiser in support of Maryland's marriage equality law. The star-studded party included Susan Sarandon, John Waters, Ed Norton, Thomas Roberts, Sandra Bernhard and Russell Simmons.
