‘Proven Innocent’: Meet Kelsey Grammer’s Gore Bellows, a Man After Justice (VIDEO)
District Attorney Bellows’ pursuit of justice may be noble in intention but isn’t always the best course of action. After wrongfully convicting Madeline Scott (Rachelle Lefevre) for murder years ago, he must constantly face Scott (now a lawyer) in the courtroom.
“All I ever did was try to get justice for that poor girl. Now, she’s going to haunt me to my grave,” he says at the start of the featurette, which provides some juicy insight on Bellows.
Grammer highlights Bellows’ pitfalls saying that he’s a man in pursuit of justice but that “he just has made a deal with the devil a few times.” Bellows is a bit of a double-edged sword, and characters perceive his actions very differently.
Bellows believes that Madeline was and is still guilty for the murder for which she was convicted. Meanwhile, Lefevre explains that, through her character Madeline’s eyes, she sees a man that saw an opportunity to advance his career.
So which is it? Is Gore Bellows crooked or simply off-course in his quest for justice? Check out the featurette below and decide for yourself:
