What if actors were treated like animals in a circus? That’s the subject of Jason Biggs' new PETA video, in which the Orange Is the New Black and American Pie star is denied food, chained up on set overnight and “shocked” with an “electric prod” to remind him who’s boss – all common circus practices.

Video: Jason Biggs Stars as 'The Elephant' in PETA Video

The video also stars Biggs’ wife, Jenny Mollen (Angel), who demonstrates with Sunny Mabrey (Once Upon a Time) how big cats are crammed into tiny cages when they’re not being forced to perform. Ross McCall (White Collar) and Daniel Maurio (actor/producer, Chelsea Lately) also appear.

“As Jason Biggs’ PETA US video reveals, the toughest TV production set doesn’t hold a candle to the cruelty in a circus tent”, says PETA UK Director Mimi Bekhechi. “Elephants and tigers stand on their hind legs or jump through rings of fire only because they know that they’ll be beaten or whipped if they don’t.”
