Vegans deal with a lot of serious issues, which is why it’s always refreshing to see a humorous take on the vegan lifestyle! Enter the Internet comedy series “Vegan 101,” which just got a mega boost from Oscar-nominated actor Eric Roberts who will star in the second season of the series.

The sketch comedy episodes focus on exaggerated parodies of veganism, and chock each segment full of fun and vegan facts, all in the hopes to inspire others to go vegan. How cool is that??

Roberts, of The Dark Knight and a recurring role on Heroes, will play Dr. Eaton Wright— a physician who takes his vegan lifestyle to the public in a new TV show called “Eating Right.”

“[Roberts] Is an incredibly talented actor whose passion for the vegan lifestyle and animal rights was the ultimate choice for the second season,” said creator Joanne Rose. “I am very excited to have Eric on board.”

“Vegan 101” has been garnering a lot of praise, as it won three outstanding achievement awards at the LA Web Fest 2011 awards, and the Green Lifestyle Film Festival 2010 Green Apple Award. It has also received celebrity endorsements from musicians like Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Go’s) and Rikki Rockett (Poison).

“People love to laugh and be entertained,” Rose explained. “It’s a way of educating others about veganism through unconventional ways. I hope the word ‘vegan’ becomes a strong part of global vocabulary, which will inspire others to learn about the lifestyle through curiosity and fascination. With entertainment, people won’t shun away.”

You can watch “Vegan 101” on outlets like Youtube, Web TV, TiVo, iTunes and your iPhone.
