Relative Newcomer Jaz Sinclair Joins Regina Hall & Morris Chestnut in 'Hand that Rocks the Cradle"-Style Thriller

16 December 2014 2:17 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Jaz Sinclair has joined the cast of Screen Gems’ psychological thriller "When the Bough Breaks" in which she'll co-star with Regina Hall and Morris Chestnut. To be directed by Jon Cassar, "When the Bough Breaks" (previously titled "The Surrogate"), tells the story of a couple who hire a surrogate to have their baby, but, as you might expect, things don't go entirely as expected.  No confirmation yet, but I'd guess that Regina Hall and Morris Chestnut are playing the couple, while Jaz Sinclair will be the surrogate. Director Cassar's resume includes helming episodes of hit TV series like "24," "Daybreak" »

Martin Odum has some issues. He hasn’t seen his son in months; he’s divorced; his one-time hook-up looks like she’s going to remain a one-time hook-up. And he might not even be Martin Odum.

Martin Odum, played by Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean, has a few of these legends, but he is struggling to separate himself from these false identities and starting to question who he really is. That’s an intriguing premise, »
