One of the highlights of the first Presidential debate was the firestorm of reactions that poured in from Hollywood. Everyone from Mark Ruffalo to Leslie Jones, Colin Jost, Maria Shriver and more had something to say (there was no shortage of priceless Trump zingers), and you can expect everyone to be out in full force again tonight for the 2016 Vice Presidential Debate. The theatrics may be a little toned down tonight thanks to the absence of Trump, but all eyes will be watching Tim Kaine (D) and Mike Pence (R) very closely as they go head-to-head for the first time.
