(Newser) – Apparently, protesting natural gas drilling is enough to land you on the terror advisory list, as Mark Ruffalo found out the hard way. The actor was placed on the watch list by Pennsylvania’s Office of Homeland Security after organizing screenings for Gasland, a documentary about drilling, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. His reaction? “Pretty f***in’ funny,” he tells GQ. Click here to watch a Gasland trailer.
