Actress Edie Falco Is Stepping Into The World Of Virtual Reality To Voice A Mother Orca Whale Mourning The Loss Of Her Baby As Part Of A New Campaign Against Controversial Theme Park Seaworld.
The Sopranos star, a longtime supporter of animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), has teamed up with organisation officials for a new empathy project called I, Orca, which uses Google's virtual reality goggles to give participants an idea of what it feels like to be a killer whale and swim with its orca family.
In the video, the user will meet an orca mother, voiced by Falco, who still mourns her baby whale, decades after her son was taken into captivity and sent to SeaWorld.
She says, "One minute my little boy was with me - the next he was pulled up out of the water. There was nothing I could do to save him. They have stolen his life, torn us apart, and put him in a concrete box filled with chemically treated water... He's been robbed of his family's love and all the joys of the ocean, where he belongs."

Newcomers like 'House of Cards' and 'Master of Sex' replace the old guards like 'Mad Men' and 'Homefront' in the TV noms
The nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards were revealed this week and although there were few surprises in the movie nominations; in the television categories however, it's time for change in the established order of critically-acclaimed TV. Former nomination regulars like Mad Men and Homefront are nowhere to be seen in the nominees lists, replaced instead by the new order of critically-acclaimed shows.
Master of Sex, along with House of Cards, is now the show to beat
Master of Sex and House of Cards now look like the shows to beat, with Breaking Bad making what will be its final appearance at the Golden Globes with the series ending this year. This comes just a year after Homeland achieved the impressive feat of winning Best Drama Series, Best Male Actor and Best Female Actor all in one night, although this does mark the second year in a row that the 2007-2009 winner Mad Men has not appeared in the Best Drama category.
Having served as part of a hosting team in 2009, NPH is back hosting the Emmy's all by himself this time
Neil Patrick Harris will look to further his claim as a natural awards show host when he takes to the stage at the 65th Annual Emmy Awards this Sunday, 22 September. Having built up an impressive resume already as co-host of the awards in 2009 and as a four-time host of the Tony Awards, the How I Met Your Mother star needed no incentive to take on the challenge of hosting the Emmy's this year.
Harris is relishing the chance to host the Emmy's again
"I love TV and the motley crew of people that are part of it," Harris told reporters on Wednesday as the red carpet was laid out in front of Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre ahead of Sunday's ceremony. As the host of the celebration of television, you can bet that NPH had praise for the current crop of shows looking to be honoured at the awards show. He continued, in reference to the wide-ranging scope of shows up for awards, "I think that makes for a better viewing experience of television than ever, and I'm happy to be the guy in charge of honoring that."(via USA Today)
The late actor has been remembered by fans, co-workers and family following his untimely death earlier this week
Gandolfini reactions flood the web. The death of James Gandolfini - the man who reinvented the gangster image on television with his portrayal as Tony Soprano in The Sopranos - cause shockwaves to ripple across the entertainment industry and even further afield, as social networking sites and blogs became over-run with tributes for the late actor.
Gandolfini will no doubt go down in history as one of television's finest actors, and will probably be remembered as one of the finest character actors to grace any screen, and the sheer rate of well-wishes sent on his behalf goes some way to cementing his legacy - which isn't bad for someone who only got into acting to keep a friend company and to pass the time.
The man who recognised Jim's talent and gave him his biggest break of all, Sopranos creator David Chase, left a particularly heartfelt message when the news of his passing broke, and he spoke lovingly of his "brother" in the moments after his passing.
Hollywood has paid tribute to James Gandolfini, who died suddenly of a heart attack while on holiday with his son, Michael, on Wednesday (19.06.13).
