“Gosnell” actor Dean Cain laughed at liberal Hollywood actors who are planning to boycott Georgia over its new pro-life law.

Speaking with Fox & Friends on Monday, Cain said their boycott is an “absolute joke.”

“Hollywood pretending to be the bastion of moral superiority is an absolute joke, because Hollywood is not by any stretch of the imagination,” Cain said.

The Georgia Living Infants Fairness and Equality Act bans abortions on an unborn baby after their heartbeat is detectable, around six weeks. It allows exceptions for rape, incest and threats to the mother’s life. In addition, the law will allow parents to claim unborn babies as dependents on their taxes and include the unborn baby in census data. It also will allow mothers to collect child support for pregnancy and delivery costs from the father prior to the baby’s birth.

Gov. Brian Kemp signed the heartbeat law last week, ignoring threats from actress Alyssa Milano and others that they would boycott the state. Georgia is a popular filming location for TV and movies because of tax breaks.

Cain said he thinks it is “pretty hysterical” that some of the Hollywood groups who say they are going to boycott have never filmed anything in the state.

“The people of Georgia … made their decision,” Cain said. “That’s what they did. Now we have Hollywood coming in and saying, ‘Listen, we want to you have our values. We’re going to tell you what you should do and how you should do it in your state.’”

This week, “Star Wars” producer J.J. Abrams said he and director Jordan Peele plan to donate the proceeds from their new show “Lovecraft Country” to fight against the pro-life law. “Star Wars” actors Mark Hamill and Natalie Portman said they would boycott the state as well.

Actress Alyssa Milano also is urging women to go on a “sex strike” to protest the law. Celebrities including Alec Baldwin, Amy Schumer, Rosie O’Donnell, Sean Penn, Mia Farrow and Ben Stiller joined Milano in their condemnation of the pro-life bill.
