The countdown to the world premiere of "An Officer and a Murderer," is in full swing! Here’s a first look at Gary Cole as Colonel Russell Williams in the original movie (based on a true story) airing Saturday, July 21 at 8/7c.

Growing up Carlina White yearned for a strong bond with the woman she was led to believe was her biological mother. However, after years of failed attempts to strengthen that bond, Carlina sensed something was terribly wrong. This triggered a personal investigation and the results — life changing. Not only did Carlina unveil that the woman who claimed to be her biological mother, Ann Pettway, lied but also that she was kidnapped as an infant by Pettway from Harlem Hospital in New York.

Carlina’s remarkable story drew national headlines becoming the first known infant abduction from a New York hospital and will now be documented in the Lifetime Original Movie, “Abducted: The Carlina White Story.” The movie stars Aunjanue Ellis ("The Help"), Keke Palmer ("True Jackson", "VP"), and Emmy® Award winner Sherri Shepherd ("30 Rock", "The View") and will air later this year.

Stay tuned for more on “Abducted: The Carlina White Story” including true-story photos!

Exclusive Q&A - “Fugitive at 17” star, Casper Van Dien

Posted By njules 4:08pm GMT

Q&A with Casper Van Dien Casper Van Dien, who plays Spencer Oliphant in the movie,“Fugitive at 17,” discusses how this role forced him to embrace his ‘dark’ side.

Describe your character in three words.

Lost, frustrated, narcissistic

How did you prepare for the role?

This was a very hard character for me to play. As the father of 4 daughters and one son I found it hard to relate to the decisions a man like this character made. I struggled with reaching that dark side of me and pushed past what I thought were my limits and tried to work the scenes from there.

How did your character change throughout the course of the movie?

My character started getting sloppier in his pattern. It started to go further than he planned. I think that living the way he lived he could never satisfy the hunger because the satiation of the trophy could only be surpassed by taking bigger risks. It is almost like he needs to be caught. And even then the game is just beginning.

How was working on this movie different from movies you’ve done in the past?

Every movie is a new experience and they are always different. There was a huge collaboration between the producers and the actors. We had a lot of fun even though it was very cold.
