Peter Dinklage Is New Spokesman for Anti-Foie-Gras Group
NBC reports that Peter Dinklage, the 42-year-old Game of Thrones star who's been a vegetarian since he was a teenager, will spend the show's off-season as a national spokesman for Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals.
The campaign will promote better treatment for animals in factory farms -- Farm Sanctuary has also promoted veganism, worked against cloning animals for food, and advocated the foie gras bans in California.
He said he joined the cause because he felt "animals used for food are treated like unfeeling machinery."
