Ecollywood: 'Yogi' stars bear green in mind
Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh and director Eric Brevig share green tips from the set of the new "Yogi Bear" movie.
Tom Cavanagh: Hi there, I'm Tom Cavanagh.
Anna Faris: Hi, I'm Anna Faris.
Eric Brevig: Hi, I'm Eric Brevig and you're watching the Mother Nature Network.
Tom Cavanagh: Hello there, I'm Tom Cavanagh. MNN. The National Archive of M. It's nice to talk to you. Um, now, um: I don't mean to tell you your business. But sometimes, the "green" thing — people get confused. Can I tell you why? There already is a color green. And when somebody says, "how do you get more green?" I'm like, "eat a bad shrimp?" Hahahahaha! Look, that green thing isn't going away just because Tom Cavanagh has issues with the name. So can I tell you a friend of mine just built a completely green golf course? His name is Justin Timberlake. He is also in this movie. Um, if you would, to support Mr. Timberlake's travails, and to support the green cause, go see this movie. Do you know why you should? I'm gonna tell you why. Is it because of the environment question? Is it because we ask kids to put down their xBoxes and get out into the great wide world? No it is not. Do you know why we ask you? 'Cause it's wall to wall yuks. And who doesn't like that? It's laughs, L-A-F-F-S, and I tell you what: if we're having a fun time, and we're out in the great big outdoors, well then we're doing something right.
Anna Faris: Hi, I'm Anna Faris and I'm going to tell you about my new movie "Yogi Bear," and why I think this movie is really important in terms of the environment is because i think it gives families an opportunity to really appreciate their natural surroundings. I mean this movie is not about phones or computers or about work it's really about getting outside and appreciating nature and I think the first step in protecting our environment is appreciating it. So I'm hoping that this will give families a chance and kids a chance to really start appreciating their surroundings. And my green tip of the day is um taking your bags to the grocery store. Although I have to confess: I often forget mine in my car and I don't know how to remind myself to take them actually into the store, but I'm working on it.
Eric Brevig: Hi everybody I'm Eric Brevig, the director of "Yogi Bear." Um, you gotta come see this movie, it's really funny. It's got amazing voice actors, Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake play the bears ... really funny human actors ... it's got a good message ... you can bring your parents. They'll have a good time, too. It's basically fun for the whole family.
