'Scandal' Star Tony Goldwyn Cast As Polygamist In Lifetime Movie

Tony Goldwyn ("scandal cast") is set to play Warren Jeffs in an upcoming Lifetime movie. The film, "Outlaw Prophet," is based on the book from Stephen Singular, "When Men Become Gods."

"For the past six months we've been talking with producer Judith Verno about locations, details of the story. Our first choice for the book's title was 'Outlaw Prophet' which they're now using for the TV movie," Singular told the Denver Post of the production.

Jeffs was the leader of a fundamentalist Mormon polygamist sect who was caught after evading authorities for more than a year. The film follows Jeffs' rise to power following the death of his father.

Art Monterastelli ("The Hunted"), Steve Kornacki ("Boardwalk Empire") and Bryce Kass wrote the script for the movie, which will be directed by Gabriel Range ("Death of a President").
