Friends of Mariska Hargitay teamed up for a new series of sexual assualt PSAs for her Joyful Heart Foundation, an organization committed to “transforming society’s response to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse.”
The 15 to 30 second clips feature celebrities, including former Law and Order: SVU co-star Chris Meloni, Quantico actor Blair Underwood, The OC star Tate Donovan, musician/actor Nick Lachey, Broadway's Andrew Rannells, and others reciting some of the most commonly used defenses that enforce societal norms about sexual assault.
In the wake of recent discussions from the political campaigns about the conduct and language around sexual assault, a group of celebrity men are challenging the notion that "boys will be boys" in a series of public service announcements.
"Law & Order: SVU" star Mariska Hargitay directed the 15- and 30-second spots that feature an all-male cast, including Andre Braugher, Anthony Edwards, Blair Underwood, Chris Meloni, Daniel Dae Kim, Dave Navarro, Ice-T, Nick Lachey, Raul Esparza and Tate Donovan.
