To honor his environmental contributions, entomologists who discovered a new species of beetle have decided to name the insect after Robert Redford.

“It is Redford’s continuing work to safeguard the wild legacy of the Rocky Mountains that makes this name a fitting tribute,” they wrote of the new species Hydroscapha redfordi.

The beetle was discovered eating algae just above the Jerry Johnson Hot Springs in northern Idaho. Interestingly, according to MSU, the water where most of the beetles were found was steamy 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bugs aside, Redford has reportedly been cast in a new environmental drama called “All is Lost”. The one-man film (think Tom Hanks in “Castaway”) will see the 75-year-old “heroically fighting the elements while trapped alone at sea.”

According to Deadline.com, crews have been sent down to the Baja Film Studios in Mexico which houses a giant water tank where such films as ‘Titanic’ and ‘Pearl Harbor’ were filmed.
