Maurice Benard Gets A Badge!
He plays a Mob boss on GH, but Maurice Benard (Sonny) had no trouble walking the straight and narrow for Lifetime Movie Network’s A Lover Betrayed. “I play a detective, and I played it very straight,” he tells In Depth.
The film stars ALL MY CHILDREN’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 took the role,” Benard says, “because I wanted to do something different.” Also featuring Jason Brooks (ex-peter, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), the movie debuts on Saturday, September 9, at 8 p.m. EST.
He’s a real crime-stopper.
