In his upcoming new sexy series Californication, David Duchovny plays a writer juggling a busy career, kids, and “an appetite for beautiful women.” The show has been receiving early praise for its writing — as well as comparisons to a real-life version of Fox’s Family Guy.

In real life, however, Duchovny has an appetite for green living — having recently spoken with CraveOnline about his eco-friendly ways. From the article,

“I poop in the backyard. Well, we recycle. We have solar energy. I drive an electric car. I wear disposable diapers. I don’t know. That’s a lot. We try to set an example. Unfortunately, you have to have the means to be green. That’s what has to change in this world. It should be cheaper to be green. I can afford to put solar energy in and I can afford to drive an electric car because I can also have a gas car if I need to drive more than eighty miles in a day. So that’s too bad.”

Yes, it definitely needs to be cheaper; but Duchovny’s action of making the investment is the first step to having the technology eventually trickle down to the masses. Remember when DVD players cost over $1,000? Being a pioneer ain’t easy.
