What an honor!

Edward Norton has been appointed as the goodwill ambassador for biodiversity, sustainable development and conservation for the United Nations!

The actor, who ran the New York Marathon last year to raise $300,000 for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, said in a statement:

"I think that ambassadors in many ways can play a role in highlighting the models of success that the U.N. is promoting around the world."

Agreed! Thanks for bringing attention to such important issues, bb!

We think you'll do a great job with your new position!

Thoughts??

    Hihi, clearly I am not the only one who thinks he's hot. I want him to MARRY ME! Looking forward to the second Hulk movie :D

    Why are all the actors being appointed ambassadors? What does acting have to do with the world and politics?
    Bullshit… It's all bullshit.
    What's the world coming too.

  17. 17

    oh god
    he'll yak their heads off and bore them to death

    he's a nice guy but have you ever heard his commentary over fight club? man i nearly stabbed my ears with a chopstick



  18. 18

    two assholes, obviously everyone that reads this blog knows nothing about these two other thank "oh hes hawt"



  19. 19

    i respect him as an ACTOR but what does he know about sustainability and the environment? shouldn't they have picked someone with experience that can actually show and teach people what to do? running a marathon and going to another country doesn't make you an expert. learn first, practice what to do, THEN teach the masses. quickly losing respect for UN. oh and i farm sustainably so my opinion acutally counts.

    Some of you need to do your homework. First of all, Edward Norton is not just an actor. He has a degree in history from Yale, comes from a family of environmentalists and has been active in a multitude of charities from environmental causes to the arts, contributing both time, money and personal appearances to further their efforts. His family founded the Enterprise Foundation which provides sustainable housing for low-income families and creates green communities nationwide. The reason you don't know about most of these projects is because he doesn't make himself the center of attention or try to get credit for them - he just does the hard work and makes things happen. He was an environmentalist before it was the "cool" thing to do, unlike some of these other actors who just jumped on the green bandwagon for media attention. He is co-founder of www.crowdrise.com, a social media site that contributes to the greater good of people everywhere. He is on the President's Council for the Arts. And to the person who said he hates Jews, unless you're making a bad joke about American History X, you're thinking of Mel Gibson. He's a better candidate for the presidency than anyone else because he's NOT a career politician or a Wall Street puppet. The White House and the US would be fortunate to finally have a leader with integrity.
