According to the folks at the Office of Homeland Security in Pennsylvania, actor Mark Ruffalo is a threat to national security.
The "Shutter Island" and "The Kids Are All Right" star was recently placed on a terror-advisory watch list by the department after organizing some screenings for the documentary "Gasland," which takes an in-depth look at natural gas drilling, the actor recently told GQ magazine.
But Mark isn't worried about it - he actually thinks it's quite amusing.
"It's pretty [expletive] funny," he told the mag. "It's kind of raaaadical."
The film which is bringing this attention to Mark - "Gasland" - is a documentary by filmmaker Josh Fox, who set out to make the project after being asked to lease his own land for drilling.
According to the film's website , "he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called 'Gasland.'"
The documentary is slated to run on HBO through 2012, according to the website.
Ruffalo is a vocal advocate against natural gas drilling. He has spoken at public rallies protesting the practice and also wrote a recent commentary for the The Huffington Post on the topic.
