Hollywood’s Last Actor Chimp in Need of Permanent Home

From Hollywood Reporter

Eli, who was born at a commercial breeding facility in Missouri, also is the subject of an upcoming documentary, The Last Chimpanzee, from director Tanner Kling of Retrofit Films. He met the animal on the set of a shortform series that had been slated for Verizon Go90 before the streamer went belly-up. Kling went on to follow him through production on the Bollywood film, now available on Netflix. Says Kling of Eli, “His strength as a performer was his gentle, easygoing nature.”
