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.

“Equality is important for everyone, period,” Charles says in the clip. “To 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.
