- "Last year I went to Iraq. Before Team America showed up, it was a happy place. They had flowery meadows and rainbow skies and rivers made of chocolate, where the children danced and laughed and played with gumdrop smiles."
- ―Sean Penn
Sean is one of the main members of the F.A.G. and actively speaks out against Team America along with Alec Baldwin and Tim Robbins. In a news interview on Evening World News hosted by Peter Jennings, Sean reveals that he traveled to Iraq the previous year and that before Team America invaded the place it was a much happier place. Sean sides with Alec Baldwin and agrees to assist him and the other actors when Kim Jong-il gets in touch and requests the assistance of the F.A.G. at his palace for a peace conference. Once in North Korea, Sean is ordered by Alec Baldwin to keep watch over the prisoners along with the others. When Gary shows up and rescues the team, Sean and the other actors are ordered to stop Team America from reaching the theater and ruining the peace conference. Sean and Danny Glover lure Sarah and Joe into a sealed room and hide from them behind protective glass. They lock Sarah and Joe inside the room and then release Kim Jong-il's pet panthers into the same room to kill them. Sarah however uses her mental powers to get the panthers to turn on Sean and Danny. The panthers obey Sarah's commands and they break through the protective glass and savage Sean and Danny to death.
