The Hollywood Primary: Giuliani wins Ben Stein's money

WASHINGTON (CNN) - The race for Hollywood cash has focused mainly on the Democratic presidential hopefuls so far, but that hasn't stopped Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani from staking a small claim on the entertainment industry's largesse.

According to a campaign finance report filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission, the list of Giuliani's 28,000 donors from the first three months of the year includes at least four familiar faces:

"Frasier" and "Cheers" star Kelsey Grammer donated $2,300 in March.
Actor and "Dancing with the Stars" contestant John O'Hurley donated the maximum $4,600 in March (O'Hurley played the eccentric "J. Peterman" character on "Seinfeld").

Former "Saturday Night Live" regular Adam Sandler donated $2,100 in February.
Actor and conservative commentator Ben Stein donated $750 in February.
