Actor and musician Dennis Quaid is set to perform a song for a pro-free speech documentary titled, "No Safe Spaces."

The documentary is from radio show host Dennis Prager and comedian Adam Carolla and centers on the quashing of free speech in America, including at colleges and universities.

What are the details?

Quaid, who recently starred in faith-based film, "I Can Only Imagine," will perform his song, "Out of the Box," for the project.

Quaid and his band, The Sharks, released the song in November.

Quaid, a registered independent, told the New York Post that he wanted to feature the song in the film because Americans have forgotten what it is to accept differing viewpoints.

"It's not just Hollywood," Quaid said. "Our whole culture has become intolerant."

He said his song is about "being open to other points of view and not mindlessly giving yourself over to an 'ism'" and is a rallying cry against censorship.

Quaid, 64, will also be featured in the documentary and will play former President Ronald Reagan, whom he described as the "best president of his lifetime."

Other familiar faces in the film will include Tim Allen, Alan Dershowitz, Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, Ben Shapiro, and more.

"I don't give myself to any party or 'ism,'" Quaid said. "I don't march lock step with anything or anybody except for God and the values my mom taught me back in Texas."

He added, "So if a president does great things I can acknowledge that no matter his party. I've voted for candidates from both parties and I'm a registered independent."

Some of the lyrics in Quaid's song include, "Think out of the box. ... Your life is not your own / God owns your very bones."
