Michael Clarke Duncan is stepping back into the limelight with his new series “The Finder” on Fox all while maintaining an eco-friendly lifestyle.

His new series emulates the networks green qualities, by keeping an eco-friendly set. One example is no plastic water bottles are available.

The whole green routine isn’t new for the 54-year-old actor, who eats an organic, vegetarian diet with meat substitutes like imitation bacon and sausage from Morningstar Farms.

It doesn’t look like “The Green Mile” actor would choose such eating habits, with his large stature and bulging muscles, but that just goes to prove eating healthy doesn’t make you weak, only stronger. Duncan even credits his diet for his figure.

However, one downside in the actor’s sustainability is he drives a Hummer. He is well aware of its toxicity to the planet and explained, “I didn’t buy it. It was free.”

Duncan’s new show is a spinoff of Fox’s other big hit “Bones,” both created by Hart Hanson. The drama follows Walter Sherman, played by Geoff Stults, an Iraq War veteran turned finder, who has suffered head trauma in the line of duty. Duncan plays Leo Knox, bar owner/attorney/friend to Sherman.

“I was looking for a TV show because I’d never done one before,” Duncan said. He and Stults get along great and have the best time on set. “We hardly get any work done.”

The new drama premiered yesterday and will start airing after the “American Idol” results show next week, so there’s still time to watch the pilot.

Perhaps with his vegetarian ways, Duncan will dine with vegan “Bones” actress Emily Deschanel during cross over episodes…
