Actor James Cromwell appeared in court Monday on charges stemming from his arrest at a Virginia Wendy’s restaurant this summer. Seems Cromwell, who became an animal rights activist after working with digitally enhanced talking pigs in the movie Babe, created a biggie-sized nuisance when he and other activists descended on the restaurant at lunchtime and took over the counter in an effort to stop service.



The PETA-sponsored stunt ended with Cromwell hauled off in handcuffs. He received a a suspended $1,000 fine Monday and was ordered to stay out of all Fairfax County, Virginia, Wendy’s restaurants.
