Actor James Cromwell Booted from Event for Heckling Energy Company

NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. (AP) — Actor James Cromwell was one of two people escorted from an upstate New York business event for protesting an award given to an energy company.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (http://bit.ly/1SyXr1F ) that the 75-year-old actor whose work includes “Babe” and “L.A. Confidential” was removed from the Tuesday night event in New Windsor when he and Pramilla Malick began heckling the award presented to CPV Valley Energy Center.

Cromwell and Malick say the company’s natural gas-fired electricity plant being built in a nearby town is a dangerous polluter threatening the environment and the people living there. Cromwell lives in an adjacent town.

Cromwell was nominated for an Academy Award for best supporting actor for 1995’s “Babe,” which ends with his farmer character telling the film’s porcine star, “That’ll do, pig. That’ll do.”
