James Cromwell was escorted out of an event Tuesday night after the Oscar nominee allegedly heckled during the presentation of an award to an energy company.
The AP reports that Cromwell, 75, and Pramilla Malick were removed from the business event in New Windsor, in upstate New York, after they began protesting as an award was being 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,” the AP reports. “Cromwell lives in an adjacent town.”
Cromwell received an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor for his role as a farmer in the 1995 feature “Babe,” in which Cromwell delivers the catchphrase “That’ll do, pig. That’ll do.” (See clip, below.)
