VIDEO: Official movie trailer for ‘Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer’
Cain stars as Detective James “Woody” Wood in Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, which opens in as many as 750 theaters October 12. MRC Culture interviewed Cain Sept. 21 at Family Research Council’s 2018 Values Voter Summit. He called Gosnell’s crimes “absolutely ghastly” and guessed that the media’s silence surrounding Gosnell was because “abortion’s a bad word.”
Among other things, Gosnell was convicted May 2013 of one count of involuntary manslaughter and the first-degree murder of three babies (while the Grand Jury report, The Hollywood Reporter has noted, “alleges Gosnell killed hundreds of infants by sticking scissors into their necks”).
Cain said the script originally inspired him to be in Gosnell.
“It was a very compelling story for me,” he said, before describing his initial reaction to it. “I said, ‘This is a great story to tell, and a great character, and I want this story out there, and I’m happy to jump into it.’”
But it was not an easy story to jump into.
“This guy was – is – an abortion doctor and he was killing live babies, and that’s just murder,” he added of Gosnell. “I don’t care how you slice it, the babies were born alive and he was killing them and it’s absolutely ghastly.”
