Summary
Stephen C. McQueen, frustrated understudy to the remarkably healthy Josh Harper, star of "Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know," a play about Lord Byron, must make a choice between love or fame after meeting Josh's witty, restless wife, Nora
Summary
Steve C. McQueen (not that other Steve McQueen) is waiting--and waiting--for his big break. His only screen credits are playing dead bodies on cop and doctor shows, and now he's paying the rent by understudying movie sex symbol Josh Harper, who's trying to gain dramatic credibility in a West End play. If only Josh would miss a performance, Stephen could get his big break, prove his talent, and redeem himself in the eyes of his disapproving ex-wife and their precocious seven-year-old daughter. Stephen gets his chance when he stumbles on a secret that puts Josh in his debt. It's an extremely sticky situation, made all the stickier by Stephen's growing relationship with Josh's wife. Stephen is about to discover how good an actor he really is
