In perhaps one of the most bizarre career moves ever, actress Isabella Rossellini (most recently known for her work on Alias) is working with the Sundance Channel to produce a series of short films called Green Porno.

While you might be imagining a scantily clad Rossellini doing the dirty on an organic mattress with bamboo sheets, a non-down comforter and responsible lighting, the actual premise is a whole lot stranger.  

In Green Porno Rossellini dresses in a series of different costumes and impersonates various small creatures getting their groove on.  I know it’s a lot to take in so let’s talk through it for a sec. So picture Rossellini…ok got it? Now picture Rossellini flapping her “wings” in…say a bee costume. Now picture Rossellini flapping her “wings” in a bee costume and mating with a cardboard cut out of another bee while her son and his friends play background male bees in the “hive”. No, I’m serious!

Rossellini recently told CNN that she hopes the short films will be both entertaining and educational (and creepy?).  She also shared this little pleasantry about the praying mantis’ mating ritual: “While they’re mating the female eats up the male and the male continues to mate until he’s completely eaten and dead. With a lot of insects, a lot of females eat the male.”  I holding my breath for that one!
