TCA: Tommy Lee and Ludacris play nice

POSTED BY STUART LEVINE

It’s hard to imagine that during Motley Crue’s party hearty era, drummer Tommy Lee would’ve given any Chrisbridges thought to environmental issues.

Crue’s days — and mostly nights — were all about the excess, whether it was booze, girls or turning up the volume. But now Lee is teaming up with rapper Ludacris (pictured right) to clean up the mess in Planet Green’s “Battleground Earth ” which begins Aug. 3 at 10 p.m. (Net is part of the Discovery family.) The two take part in an eco-friendly competition trying to pursuade viewers to go green.

Lee, on satellite from Canada while touring with the Crue, didn’t add much to the conversation — Ludacris, aka Chris Bridges, and musician Johnny Colt of the band Train were politely fielding questions on stage –and the panel turned into a rather tame affair, especially considering the f-bombs these guys have thrown around over the years.

Toward the end of the session, one scribe tried to liven things up and asked Tommy how he would convince Pamela Anderson to help the environment. He said he’d prefer not to answer, but one has to wonder whether silicone is biodegradable?
