Real Life Activist Ellen Page Might Also Play One In The Movies

Ellen Page

Ellen Page is a real eco activist. She even lived in an eco village for a month where she was shoveling manure and other eco friendly stuff.

So she seems like the perfect person for Fox's new movie The East.

She's in talks to play a jealous former lover of the head of an eco group that is being infiltrated by a big corporation trying to protect their business.

Oh and did we mention ASkars is the lead!!

Aside from the chance to be on set with ASkars (who we'd pretty much guarantee will have his shirt off during the movie) she would probably love the role because of how serious she is about the environment. When asked what she cares about enough to risk her life for, she said:

"I guess, probably, the environmental movement, and the sustainability of our planet — which freaks me out. Definitely scares me, but I try not to be scared and just present."

Wow, pretty intense.

We need more people like her!
