There are so many potential Robin Hood allusions in this piece that I heard the collective groans even before I started typing.

Kevin Costner, star of the 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (at that moment every girl I knew was swooning over Bryan Adams) has joined in the fight to protect England’s Sherwood Forest from development and ruin. The actor wrote an email to back a campaign to preserve the woodland through a proposed $91 million grant from the U.K. Lottery fund. From the article,

“Costner’s email reads, ‘Sherwood Forest was a name I learned as a little boy. The surprise was being able to play the character Robin Hood. We know the legend and idea of Sherwood Forest. It is worth saving and preserving.'”

If the bid to preserve Sherwood Forest successfully wins lottery funding, the prize money will be used to create an eco-friendly visitors’ center and replant 250,000 trees. Other celebrities backing the cause include Jonas Armstrong, star of the BBC’s hit TV series Robin Hood, as well as Brian Blessed, who played Robin’s father Lord Locksley in Prince of Thieves — and incidentally, died in the first five minutes.

Now if they could just get the gang from Men In Tights in chip in….
