‘Oz’ Star Lee Tergesen Will Lead ‘Taken’ Spoof
Beecher, Beecher, Beecher. You are not on your best behavior.
Deadline reports that Lee Tergesen, who played incarcerated attorney Tobias Beecher on all six seasons of HBO’s Oz, has
made a deal with the Devil signed on to take the lead role in Tooken, Elevative Entertainment’s upcoming spoof of Liam Neeson’s Taken. He’ll play a character named “Bryan Millers,” which isn’t even faking an attempt at being different from Neeson’s “Bryan Mills.”
Tergesen has been seen more recently on such television dramas as The Americans, Longmire and Red Widow.
Directed by John Asher, who appeared with Tergesen on USA Network’s Weird Science, Tooken also stars Lauren Stamile, Laura-Leigh, Reno Wilson, Joyce Bulifant and Ray Abruzzo. It’s set to begin filming next week in Los Angeles.
