On Thursday Project Veritas released part two of its Hollywood fracking movie sting, in which a fake Arab Oil baron offers to finance an anti-fracking video because American energy independence is bad for his business. This time the objects of the sting are Susan Sarandon and her associate Chris Talbott. Sarandon's concern about dealing with the fake oil man had nothing to do with taking Arab oil money to help destroy American oil independence, but only that people might discover her involvement.

Just as in the first video, James O' Keefe's Project Veritas sends actors taking the roles of a Middle East oil baron and an ad executive who attempt to offer money to Hollywood royalty in order to produce an anti-fracking video whose purpose is to stagnate and then reverse American oil independence, crippling the American economy.

The video begins with O' Keefe answering the charges leveled by Fox's Howie Kurtz about the first Hollywood video. The film then goes to a Variety Magazine event where Sarandon is approached by the actor playing "Muhammad." Interested, she suggests the fake oil baron meet with Chris Talbott​ in her stead. The scene switches to a lunch meeting with Talbott, who positions himself as the intermediary between the phony "Muhammad" and Sarandon.

During the lunch, Talbott discusses Susan Sarandon's major concern about the enterprise: being found out:

I know that Susan is going to feel that, if it’s anonymous backing, and if anyone should find out, despite our best efforts to keep it a secret, that there will be, like, blowback that would impact her, for instance, right?

In the video, after the lunch meeting O'Keefe presents an email Talbott sent asking for further conversations. Shortly thereafter, O’Keefe poses the question to viewers:“Is Susan Sarandon’s concern standing up for her country’s energy security or selling out to anti-American interests? You decide.”

The Veritas video presentation ends with criticism of Josh Fox. In the first O'Keefe video, Fox is introduced as an environmentalist with “integrity” because he wants to have nothing to do with the fake Muhammad's project, but the second video highlights Fox's attempts to censor media outlets, particularly The Hollywood Reporter, for covering the first video.

Along with the 18-minute video embedded above Project Veritas posted the entire uncut video of both the Sarandon meeting and the lunch with Talbott on its YouTube page.don
