Seeing 'Red' 

Who wouldn't be thrilled at having Helen Mirren's hands all over their tool?

Oh, it's John Malkovich? Never mind.

Nevertheless, workers at the Tulsa-based corporate headquarters of tool manufacturer Hilti are excited to see their Hilti DX460 powder actuator have a supporting role in the new action film "Red," according to an article in the Tulsa World. The flick also stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Mary-Louise Parker.

Malkovich can be seen loading up the tool with fasteners, with the Hilti logo clearly in view. Hilti spokeswoman Susie Wellendorf told the World that permission was given to the filmmakers to use the actuator in the film, and that no money changed hands.

She noted that to celebrate Hilti's latest Hollywood moment, the company purchased in excess of 600 tickets for its Tulsa employees. How many will ditch and sneak in instead to see cartoon owls fly in 3-D was not disclosed.
