Move over, Ed Begley Jr.

Actor-activists Peter Fonda and Mariel Hemingway will add some green glitter to the Go Green Expo in Los Angeles on Friday. They’ll be downtown for a panel discussion and screening of ‘Fuel,’ a documentary about America’s oil-stained energy policies and ways for the nation to kick its carbon addiction.

Directed by author and environmentalist Josh Tickell, ‘Fuel’ won the Audience Award at the 2008 Sundance Festival. Celebs appearing in the documentary include actors Julia Roberts and Larry Hagman, singer-songwriters Sheryl Crow and Willie Nelson, environmental attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and former President Jimmy Carter.


When: Friday, Jan. 23

Screening: 5:00 p.m.

Panel Discussion: 7:00 p.m.

Where: Los Angeles Convention Center

South Hall J, Room 304 A,B & C

1201 S. Figueroa St.

The screening is free, with 300 seats available, first-come, first-served.

No diss to veteran actor Begley, by the way. The green celeb will deliver the keynote address at the Go Green Expo at 3 p.m. Friday. For a list of speakers and activities at the three-day event, check out the website. (In the interest of full disclosure, the Los Angeles Times is a sponsor.)
