We all love entertainment because A) it’s entertaining (duh) and B) it sometimes has the power to move up emotionally. 19-year-old actor Matt Prokop is looking to accomplish both A) and B) with his new film Furry Vengeance.
Prokop, pictured with his maltese poodle mix pup dog Oakley, had this to say about the flick: “Unless you’re hiding under a rock, you probably know that we’ve been chopping down way too many trees both in the US and around the world, which isn’t good. Chopping down trees, or deforestation, eliminates the homes of millions of animals and leads to more pollution in our water and air.”
“I had an amazing opportunity to star in a film called Furry Vengeance and by working on this film I learned even more about endangered species and deforestation,” Matt adds. ”Furry Vengeance, is about a group of really awesome animals that fight back against a developer who tries to demolish their homes and habitats to build over-sized mansions.
“The developer in the film happens to be my dad, played by Brendan Fraser,” Prokop concludes. ”In the film, my character sides with the animals in their fight to save their forest. The movie is tons of fun to watch, but developments like this and deforestation is actually happening over and over again all around the world.”
