 In 1985, moviegoers were first introduced to a Swedish actor, playing a Russian fighter challenging an iconic American boxer in the film "Rocky IV."

Since then, actor Dolph Lungren has played a live action version of a cartoon character, a maniac mercenary and a variety of other campy action roles.

But his latest film, "Skin Trade," deals with a topic that’s decidedly heavier - human trafficking.

Host Alex Cohen talked to him about the film, his connection to an anti-trafficking organization called the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking or CAST, and what he hopes this film will do to help.
