Why Doug Hutchinson Is Conflicted About Playing A Character Who Seduces An Underage Girl

“I know it’s gonna surprise a lot of people to hear this … but Doug [Hutchinson] was legitimately concerned about some of the sexual content and how people might not be able to separate who he is as a person from the character he was playing.”

– Director Richard O’ Sullivan on Doug Hutchinson’s moral and ethical reservations about starring in the “The Genesis of Lincoln,” a film about a director who has “a strange and scandalous relationship with the teenage pop star he casts.” Hmmm. The storyline sounds vaguely familiar. Some parts hit a little too close to home. I suppose he doesn’t want to be typecast for the rest of his career as “the lecherous dude who has a thing for teenage girls.” Ick. [ONTD]
