The Stepfather Full of Soap Stars

If you haven't seen the Screen Gems remake of The Stepfather, you may want to check it out. The suspense thriller finished in the top 10 in both of its first two weeks out and features quite a few soap opera actors. Nelson McCormick, who has directed NIP/TUCK, NYPD BLUE, THE WEST WING and several other television series, was the director on the film.

The movie stars Dylan Walsh (Sean, NIP/TUCK) as "the stepfather" who moves from family to family as seemingly the perfect guy, Sela Ward (Teddy, SISTERS) and Penn Badgley (Dan, GOSSIP GIRL; ex-Phillip, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. In supporting roles you'll find former GUIDING LIGHT stars Paige Turco (Dinah) and Sherry Stringfield (Blake) playing a lesbian couple. Turco left GL in 1989 the same year that Stringfield joined the cast.

Also appearing in the film are Blue Deckert (ex-Bill, DALLAS), Jason Wiles (ex-Colin, BEVERLY HILLS, 90210) and Jessalyn Gilsig (Terri, Glee).
