    How can i rephrase these sentences without using the form "be"?

    Effects of propaganda can be strong if it is marked well to a large population.

    The celebrities can be used for promoting clothes, shoes, causes, electronics, food, and more.

    A recent example of this would be Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried star in the Movie “Dear John.”

    I have tried, and failed. I think these sentences really need 'be'. It's quite and important verb in them.

    One could nominate Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried, starring in the Movie “Dear John" as a recent example of this.

    If you wanted a recent example of this, you could choose Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried, starring in the Movie “Dear John."

    For an example of this, look no further than Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried, starring in the Movie “Dear John.”
