Gary R. Wordham was the name of the actor that is credited as the flirting intern at the hospital. This was also the name that was used on the passport Alec Baldwin's character used when he flew to Guatemala. See more »

Yet another great thriller novel poorly adapted to thescreen
This was a really entertaining novel, with a villain to match Hannibal Lecter, so how did it become such a bad movie? Alec Baldwin does his usual good work, and Anne Heche stole the movie as the "best friend," but this is done in such a clinical and cynical way, so it feels like a machine did this movie, rather than people. I'm not a big Demi Moore fan, but she can't really be blamed for this mess. The irony is writer Ted Tally also adapted THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, and did such a good job there. Wonder what happened here.
