Maurice Benard Gets A Badge!
While Sonny is fighting to get out of the Mob, portrayer Maurice Benard had no trouble walking the straight and narrow for the Lifetime Movie Network’s upcoming thriller, A Lover Betrayed. “I play a good detective, and I played it very straight,” the actor tells In Depth. The film stars AMC’s Jamie Luner (Liza) as a woman who sees a magical night with a soldier turn into a nightmare after he becomes obsessed with her.
“I haven’t watched it yet, but my wife, Paula, saw it, and she was actually into it,” Benard says. “I took the role because I wanted to play a detective and do something a bit different, so we’ll see how I did. It’s kind of interesting.”
The movie, which also features DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ Jason Brooks (ex-Peter), premieres on Saturday, September 9, at 8 p.m. EST.
Benard is pursuing justice, rather than
running from it, in A Lover Betrayed.
