Playing against type.
Per Soaps in Depth, former "All My Children" star Justin Bruening (ex-Jamie) will appear in the Lifetime movie "Blue Eyed Butcher." He plays an allegedly abusive husband whose wife stabs him to death.
Based on a true story, the wife, played by Sara Paxton ("The Beautiful Life"), maintains she was battered and acted out of self-preservation. However, the case's prosecutor, played by Lisa Edelstein ("House"), argues Sara is a sociopath trying to get away with murder.
"Blue Eyed Butcher" premieres on March 3 at 8:00 PM. Watch the trailer below.
