Alan Cumming has been fighting for a long-lost co-star in Hollywood — he spent years searching for a missing chimp named Tonka.

The “Good Wife” star has joined the advisory council of Floridian sanctuary Save the Chimps and aims to educate the film and TV industry about the fate of animals used in production. “I feel a personal connection to many of the residents here,” Cumming says in a new public service announcement from the org.

“In the ’90s, I starred in a film with an infant chimp named Tonka. Back then, I didn’t know very much about the way showbiz chimps are treated,” he added.

Cumming spent years searching for Tonka and even offered a $20,000 reward last year to anyone who found the beloved primate. He was finally located in June, chained in a basement in Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, and sent to Save the Chimps.
