Daniel Craig, Steve Carell, and Benicio Del Toro are just a few of the famous faces that appear in the White House's new anti-rape PSA that also features Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama.

The public service announcement, part of the "1 is 2 Many" campaign, addresses the problem of sexual assault throughout the country.

"We have a big problem and we need your help," Del Toro says. "If she doesn’t consent, or if she can’t consent: it’s rape. It’s assault."

"It’s a crime. It’s wrong," Carell adds.

Dule Hill and "Late Night" host Seth Meyers are also featured in the anti-rape PSA, which will be shown as a pre-film preview in movie theaters nationwide.

According to the government-operated "1 is 2 Many" website, 1 in 5 young women will be a victim of sexual assault while they are in college and 1 in 9 teen girls will be forced to have sex.

"We need all of you to be part of the solution," Biden, shown seated at his desk, says. "This is about respect, it's about responsibility."

Obama also encourages people everywhere to take a stand.

"It's up to all of us to put an end to sexual assault," the president says. "And that starts with you."

"Because one [assault] is too many," Craig says in closing.

The "James Bond" star also released a statement in conjunction with the release of the PSA.

"I am honored to be part of such an important and crucial project," he said. "The message is clear and simple; everyone has a responsibility. There are no exceptions. There are no excuses. Please watch it and pass it on."
