Redskins LB to Portray Sean Taylor on ID TV Show about His Murder
Skins fans may or may not have mixed emotions about this decision.
Washington Redskins linebacker Khairi Fortt is reportedly set to portray slain Redskins legend Sean Taylor in a new TV show about his murder, according to TMZ Sports.
“The show is a combination of real-life interviews with investigators and family members, and scenes dramatizing the actual events.
But get this … the role of Taylor’s father will be played by Fortt’s father, Guy Fortt — who was an actor working with producers on the show last year when he suggested they consider Khairi to play Sean.
Khairi got the audition and executive producers Kevin Kaufman and Rick Tirelli tell us it was an obvious fit.”
Fortt will star as Taylor on the June episode of “The Perfect Murder” on Investigation Discovery. The show will explore how cops helped solve the case of Sean’s tragic 2007 home invasion murder.
