is making another debut. This time the senior actress is being tapped as the spokesperson for Earth Biofuels, Inc., a Dallas-based biodiesel producer, while also chairs its new advisory board.

"It's very important that we expand our use of clean energy and make a long-term commitment to it. Biodiesel and ethanol are better for the environment and for the air we breathe," Roberts said in a statement released this week.

Earth Biofuels said that Roberts will work with the company on a campaign to encourage the use of biodiesel in school buses nationwide. Roberts joins fellow Oscar winner and country singer in promoting the use of renewable fuels. Freeman and Nelson are on Earth Biofuels' board of directors.
