February 5, 2011 |  1:23 pm

He doesn't look like he's had a wink of sleep.

But the famous Egyptian actor Amr Waked is nonetheless passionate and energetic in support of his country's uprising against the 30-year-rule of President Hosni Mubarak in a video that appeared on YouTube. 

Waked once appeared in a 2007 Los Angeles Times article about filmmaking in Cairo. American moviegoers might recognize him from the 2005 Stephen Gaghan film "Syriana," which starred George Clooney.
