"This caused us all such deep sadness and pain," Goldwyn says in a scene from the TV movie in which he plays polygamist leader Jeffs -- who is now serving life in prison after being convicted on several charges including the sexual abuse of a 12-year-old and a 15-year-old.

Goldwyn is also seen in the clip at one point looking toward the heavens while trying to rally his religious followers amid his vast legal problems. "I will grasp his hand, I will take all of your hands in mine, and we will rise up together in glory. I do this because I love you all."
