During his last weeks as host of The Tonight Show, Conan O'Brien trotted out surprise guests and big-name comedians--like Robin Williams, Adam Sandler, and Ricky Gervais--who all took their own shots at NBC's decision to replace O'Brien with former host Jay Leno. But last night's unscheduled crasher, Ben Stiller, looked at the late-night shake up from an environmental perspective, pointing out that the network spent $50 million on the Tonight Show set--to use it for just seven months. He then turned the bit into a parody of NBC's "Green is Universal" campaign; click the video above to see the full sketch, and catch up on the rest of Hollywood's green happenings after the jump.

Actor Ted Danson has been a supporter of clean oceans for decades--in the 1987, he helped start the American Oceans Campaign, which merged with Oceana in 2002. In addition to his PSA work, fundraising efforts, and government testimony as an Oceana board member, Danson just announced plans to write a book that gives a "celebratory and cautionary look at the world's oceans," according to the release on MediaBistro. The book, for publishing house Rodale, "represents a culmination of more than two decades of study, activism, and teaching and will provide a decisive, inspiring, and hopeful look at one of the most important environmental concerns of our time."

Environmentalism may not have been front and center at the Golden Globes on Sunday, but green was big behind the scenes, from the upcycled wedding dress on Colin Firth's wife, Livia, and the sparkly Stella McCartney on nominee Anna Paquin to the all-natural tarte makeup on nominee Vera Farmiga. And while winner Alec Baldwin (who grabbed the trophy for his work on 30 Rock) skipped the awards show to perform hosting duties at the annual Waterkeeper Alliance dinner in Canada, on hand to accept their wins in person were James Cameron (for Best Director and Best Picture for the green-themed Avatar) and Best Supporting Actress Chloe Sevigny (honored for her role on Big Love), who survived a ripped dress to make her acceptance speech. (Read more about Sevigny's green lifestyle in her interview with EcoStiletto, where she opens up about her eco-friendly changes and sustainable products.)
Sasha Grey's Anti-Sex PETA Ad
Adult film star Sasha Grey is the latest bombshell to shed her clothes for PETA; in the new campaign, she speaks out for the importance of getting your pets spayed or neutered with the tagline, "Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing." "I think spaying and neutering is extremely important," she says. "It keeps the animals out of the shelters, and there's too many unwanted animals out there already."
