Richard Dawkins has apparently gotten snookered into appearing in a pro-ID film. The film, fronted by Ben Stein, actor (Bueller, Bueller...) and game show host (Win Ben Stein's Money), is called Expelled, and chronicles the academic mistreatment of professors who side with ID. Dawkins and others claim that they were only told that the film would be about the the confluence of science and religion. The film was originally to be called Crossroads. According to the article:

Stein denied in the New York Times that he had misled anyone. "I don't remember a single person asking me what the movie was about," he said. The film company said the movie's title was changed on the advice of marketing experts.

There is also a New York Times article on the controversy. You can go there to find it if you really want to.
