We’ve all seen him portray Law & Order’s Detective Mike Logan, Carrie Bradshaw’s wealthy commitment-challenged beau on Sex and the City and a Chicago state attorney in CBS’ highly acclaimed The Good Wife. But Chris Noth, who has enjoyed quite an enduring presence on both the small and big screens, also spends a large portion of his free time working on behalf of the environment.

The well-known actor believes we’re currently in the midst of an ecological emergency “that should be the first thing on everybody’s list” of problems to address. Feeling that it’s everyone’s responsibility to chip in, become active and preserve our ailing planet, Noth has been a dedicated advocate of the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) for the better part of a decade. He chose to ally himself with the 25 year old grassroots organization because they “demand ethical action from government and big business.”

On Thursday, April 29, 2010, Noth will lend his star power to the Rainforest Action Network’s 25th Anniversary NYC Benefit at Bleecker Street’s Le Poisson Rouge. In addition to enjoying a festive evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and live music performed by Grammy-nominated singer Tift Merritt, attendees will also get the opportunity to participate in an auction to win a dinner date with Sir Noth as well as two tickets to the world premiere of his upcoming flick, Sex and the City 2. For many ladies, the prospect of this alone is well worth the price of admission.

While the tickets are rather pricey at $250, they are graciously offering freebie admission to anyone who becomes a $25/month RAN supporter. And, of course, all cash raised during the event will help fund RAN’s future eco-projects. Sound like fun? Visit RAN.org to get your tickets.

    Oh Chris Noth, your such an old romantic,
    declaring your methods, you turn the ghirls frantic!
    An old fashioned letter, of your love declared,
    I am very surprised, to find out that you cared!

    What would you use, a quill and some ink,
    perhaps in a cave, with a wall and a flint!
    Parchment paper and some blood from a bull,
    yes, I can see it, that’s pretty cool!

    But where would you get, bull’s blood in New York,
    you could kill two bird’s and just use a stork!
    The plume from its tail, would come in very handy,
    when your writing your letters, it works fine and dandy!

    Now I have to say, it once again,
    that I’m not available, for your love, ye ken!
    I have a fine laddie, his name is big Jim,
    6 foot 2 inches, and a passionate Tim!

    So stop dropping hints, and raffling dinners.
    I cannot compete, with your list of winners!
    The dosh that I have, is all that I’ve got,
    I can’t give it to RAN, cause its going on my yacht!
