MAKING WAVES JAMES CROMWELL
The actor and activists, like his character Uncle Ewan on “Succession,” is taking a stand against for the environment and against capitalism. The 82- year- old glued his hand to a Manhattan Starbucks counter on Tuesday to protest the coffee chain’s extra charge for vegan milk. Cromwell, also known for “Babe” and “L. A. Confidential,” channeled his role as the crotchety brother of a billionaire media mogul for the protest organized by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Cromwell wore a “Free the Animals” T- shirt and read a statement denouncing the surcharge: “When will you stop raking in huge profits while customers, animals and the environment suffer?” Police said there were no arrests.
