John Saxon: "God's Ears," "The Mercy Man"

OK, we said last week that we were going to bring you a little more info on what the stars of "Dynasty" have going on right now for projects, and the name today is Mr. John Saxon, so sleek as Rashid Ahmed, keeping Alexis guessing, dare we say!

"God's Ears" is a film classified as in production and scheduled for release this year. Saxon plays Lee Robinson in the film, written and directed by Michael Worth. The plotline from the IMDb: "Noah Connelly is a boxer with a tireless opponent: autism. When he meets a dancer named Alexia, he finds himself climbing out of his 'silent ring' to take on the fight of the real world as the two lovers challenge the giant hurtle between them." Worth plays the title role of Noah.

"The Mercy Man" is in postproduction. Written and directed by Rider McDowell, it's being touted as the first major film series to feature a Hispanic-American hero. It's based on the bestselling novel and comic book about a Puerto-Rican American NYPD undercover cop, Willy Diaz. He's a 30-year-old, handsome and street smart cop who tracks down a copycat serial killer terrorizing New York City. Saxon portrays Father McMurray. Learn more in this story.
