It sounds like a scene out of a “Veep” episode: A celeb heads to Capitol Hill to talk about a complicated-sounding subject — the risks of seismic air gun blasting in the Atlantic Ocean — but for actor Reid Scott, the issue is very real.
The ocean advocacy group Oceana is urging Congress and the Obama administration to reconsider the use of the seismic air guns, which it argues, disrupt the behavior of animals in the water and are a threat to wildlife, fisheries, and local economies.
Scott, 36, was in Washington earlier this month for the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. “Veep” films in Maryland.
