Jordan Charney in "Anamorph"

Jordan Charney is a very familiar face in the world of television, and he's also a BRBTV triple-shot: He was Lieutenant Sutton and Detective Rollins in the early days of "Dallas," he was Bill Cochran on "Dynasty" in 1988, and he terrorized Kelly Capwell in the psychiatric facility as Dr. Renfro on "Santa Barbara." He's just done a whole lot of television over the years, beginning in the 1950s, including a whole heckin' lot of soap credits. And hey, we just saw him on an episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" the other night.

These days, Charney's working on a new film project, "Anamorph," in which he's part of a very fine cast. Deborah Harry, for one -- that fabbo '70s pop-music star who's dabbled in quite a bit of acting over the years in-between sets with Blondie (she was certainly our "Candie's girl" way back when, in the shoe brand's first wave). Then there's Peter Stormare, so stunning as John Abruzzi in the first season of Fox's "Prison Boys" -- er, we mean, "Prison Break" (we cried when he died -- and why wouldn't we?). Add in some Willem Dafoe and hunky young Scott Speedman of "Underworld" and the WB's "Felicity," and you've got the makings for a great flick.

Written and directed by Henry Miller, this independent film was shooting last year in New York and is now classified as in postproduction, scheduled for release this year. The plotline from the IMDb: "A psychological thriller based on the concept of anamorphosis, a painting technique that manipulates the laws of perspective to create two competing images on a single canvas." Charney plays a review board chairman in the movie.

Miller co-wrote the script two and a half years ago while working as a security guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, according to the indieLONDON website.
