James Cromwell from “Babe” and “American Horror Story” has been sent to jail after he was arrested at a Wawayanda protest and refused to pay a $375 fine.
The Emmy-Award winner, James Cromwell, from “Babe” and “American Horror Story” has been sent to seven days in jail after being arrested at a Wawayanda protest in New York and refused to pay a $375 fine. He was among other protestors who were marching against the “Competitive Power Ventures” power plant in protest of their destruction of the environment.
They protested saying that the CPV is emitting a threatening amount of carbon into the atmosphere that would speed up climate change. He and six other protestors were found guilty for “obstructing traffic” during their sit-in. Three of them paid the fine but Cromwell, Madeline Shaw and Pramilla Malick all refused and have been sent to seven days in jail.
Cromwell said: “If we don’t stay together, nothing will change. Power to the people.”
However, an appeal was filed and now the three protestors have until July 14th to pay the fine or they might be facing prison time.
Cromwell’s Upcoming Movies
Cromwell is about to star in the movie “Fallen Kingdom,” Jurassic Park’s sequel. They started filming in February with Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt.
“Obviously when you have Chris Pratt, it will also be very funny,” the director, Colin Trevorrow said. “But it will be darker. It is a second step in a trilogy, and the second step is always dark as in The Empire Strikes Back or the Wrath Of Khan, which are the examples you always get.”
“The film takes the story where it has never been before. To me, it surprised me. We are going to places where the saga has never been before, and at the same time we are paying tribute to the franchise. We will take it a step further. There are things that will happen that people are not expecting and they really are shocking.”
