Mathew Modine

Actor and environmental activist Matthew Modine touches the "Earth Ball" on top of One Times Square in New York City. The famous ball atop Times Square has been refitted with energy-efficient LED lights and has been re-dubbed the "Earth Ball" in honor of Earth Day and in anticipation of the 40th anniversary of the environmental holiday in 2010.
