Tom Wopat is not all Broadway these days; our buddy Luke Duke is returning to his big and small screen credits with a couple new projects for 2008.
"Taking Chance" is a HBO TV movie that is still filming in New Jersey for release next year. The plotline from the IMDb: "Based on real-life events, Lt. Col. Michael Strobl (Bacon), a volunteer military escort officer, accompanies the body of 19-year-old Marine Chance Phelps back to his hometown of Dubois, Wyoming." The movie also features Kevin Bacon as well as Paige Turco, whom you might recall from the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movies. Wopat portrays Mr. Phelps.
"The Understudy" is classified as completed. Gloria Reuben of "ER" and all kinds of other stuff is also on board. The plotline from the IMDb: "A perennial understudy takes matters into her own hands to achieve fame at any price." Wopat plays Detective Jones.
