Actor and activist James Cromwell, known primarily for his starring role in the hit movie ‘Babe’, has been announced as the executive producer for the upcoming vegan documentary ‘Running for Good’.
‘Running for Good’ documents the journey of vegan runner Fiona Oakes as she attempts the Marathon Des Sables (a 250km Sahara trail known as the toughest footrace on earth).
Keegan Kuhn, who has previously worked on ‘What the Health’ and ‘Cowspiracy’, is directing the documentary. He announced James Cromwell’s role on Instagram, saying: ‘Super excited to finally announce that actor/activist James Cromwell is the Executive Producer of Running for Good!’
Cromwell has appeared in numerous campaigns and advertisements for PETA and been involved in many vegan protests, using his influence to encourage people towards the plant-based lifestyle. Earlier this year, he was even arrested for participating in a protest at SeaWorld over the poor treatment of their orcas.
Fiona Oakes, who will star in the new documentary, also loves to promote the vegan lifestyle. Back in June, she ran the Tromso Half Marathon dressed as a cow, achieving a world record for the fastest half marathon while dressed as an animal. She is also the founder of the Tower Half Marathon animal sanctuary in Essex, and her achievements go towards funding this project.
