As we reported earlier, the Independent Spirit Awards were a green affair this year — from biodiesel generators to composting to food sourced within a 150 miles radius of Los Angeles. The list was impressive, but organizers pulled back the curtain last night to reveal an even greater source of energy: Ed Begley Jr. pedaling a stationary bike.

Injecting some humor into an already funny evening hosted by Rainn Wilson (The Office), the producers had some fun by showing Ed pedaling a bike backstage and announcing that he was covering the lights, sound, etc. Those that have watched the show Living With Ed will know that Begley is known to power a toaster with a stationary bike in his kitchen. Very funny.

As the Academy Awards are using wind power for tonight’s festivities, we’ll probably not be treated to a pedaling Lance Armstrong backstage. With Jon Stewart hosting, however, anything could shake down. We’ll keep you posted.

Thanks Linton!
