Samuel L. Jackson and Dominic Cooper display a winning chemistry in the pulpy page-turner of a thriller Reasonable Doubt, and in this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD release out Tuesday, the producers explain why the two stars were the perfect casting choices.
In Reasonable Doubt, Dominic plays up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden, a straight-arrow family man whose life takes a serious turn when he unintentionally commits a hit-and-run. The case ironically lands in his lap, and with a personal stake in it, he feels compelled to manipulate the proceedings to acquit Clinton Davis (Jackson), the accused criminal who was found with the body and blamed for the crime. When Davis walks away without a conviction, Mitch's worst fears come true when he learns that his actions freed a guilty man -- and he may be the next target of a serial killer.
Also starring Gloria Reuben, Reasonable Doubt is directed by Peter P. Croudins and written by Peter A. Dowling (Flightplan, Antitrust).
