Green hero – Hart Bochner is Hollywood’s greenest actor
With the latest 007 movie breaking all records at world-wide box-offices, Daniel Craig is ruling the scene in Hollywood. But all those speeding cars, high tech gadgets and wild chases in air as well on water doesn’t earn him or his film a green flag from ecologists. Also actor-turned governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s green promises and earth-friendly Leonardo DiCaprio do not get the honor of being voted as the ‘Greenest actor in Hollywood’. This title is awarded to Hart Bochner. Now who is this chap? Well, Bochner co-stars in the USA Network drama The Starter Wife, featuring Will and Grace alumna Debra Messing. Believing in the famous old adage, “Practice before you Preach’, Bochner does anonymous, behind-the-scenes work to make the industry more environmentally friendly.
Since Hollywood is looked upon, not only by the whole nation, but the whole world, he asserts that a green change in the whole set up can have an profound impact on all. Being a board member at Environmental Media Association, he started by creating the EMA Green Seal, which is a badge of approval for productions that follow environmentally friendly practices.
Also he is convincing Hollywood people to trade their swanky, fuel-guzzling luxurious cars with the hybrid Toyota Prius. Coaxing them to take such green steps to lure their fans to do the same, he is all set to sweep the Hollywood with a green wave.
