From 'torture porn' to Tom Wolf campaign ad for actor/attorney

Alan Benyak, an attorney who appears in a campaign commercial for Democrat Tom Wolf, is also an actor in what Buzzfeed.com calls a "torture porn" film called "Breeding Farm."

Alan Benyak, an attorney and former judicial candidate, appears in a television commercial for Democrat Tom Wolf's campaign for governor.

But that's not his most famous on-screen role any more.

Buzzfeed.com today reported that Benyak starred as "Mr. Cannibal" in "Breeding Farm," described by the web site as a "twisted porn film."

And that means Benyak is currently being edited out of Wolf's commercial.

"We were unaware of Mr. Benyak's involvement in the film, and we are making changes to the ad now," Wolf spokesman Mark Nicastre emailed in response to a question about the Buzzfeed story.

Benyak accused Gov. Corbett’s re-election campaign of being in “full-out desperation mode” after trailing in the polls to Wolf.

“Unfortunately, I have become political fodder in a game of high-stakes politics due to a small role I played in a low-budget film as a favor to a friend struggling to fulfill his own dreams,” Benyak said in a statement emailed to the Daily News.

IMDB.com, describes the film this way: "After a night of partying, four friends are kidnapped by a mysterious man. The friends wake up in a basement, and realize they are part of something horrifying. A human breeding farm. They are to be milked, bred, and much, much worse."

Benyak does not appear in the IMDB cast list, which describes Breeding Farm as a horror movie.  Buzzfeed watched the film and found him in the credits at the end.

The Republican Governor's Association, a top campaign donor to Corbett's bid for a second term, leaped on the Buzzfeed story as an example of Wolf's "terrible judgment."

"If Tom Wolf doesn't know who he is featuring in his ads to speak for his campaign, how can voters trust him to make the right decisions for Pennsylvania?" the RGA asked, while calling on Wolf to apologize for the ad.

Benyak ran for judge on the Democratic and Republican ballots last year for the Washington County Court of Common Pleas, in southwestern Pennsylvania.
