In Prosecuting Casey Anthony, the Golden Globe nominee will portray Jeff Ashton, who prosecuted the Florida case, revealing his side of the story, going behind-the-scenes of the investigation.

Casey Anthony was acquitted of killing her daughter Caylee but Ashton, along with many others, remains convinced of Casey's guilt.

The Lifetime original movie will be based on Ashton's best-selling book Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony.
