Chuck gives HollywoodLife.com the scoop on ‘Stalked At 17,’ premiering Saturday, Oct. 27, at 8 p.m.
Forget everything you thought you knew about Chuck Hittinger. He may have gotten your attention as Hanna’s squeaky-clean boyfriend Sean on Pretty Little Liars, but “pretty” isn’t a word I’d used to describe his new role in the upcoming Lifetime movie Stalked At 17.
“[Chad is] a charming young man in his early twenties who’s had a lot of issues in his past,” Chuck tells HollywoodLife.com. “He’s dealing with those issues throughout the movie, which leads him to kidnap a young girl and impregnate her.”
Like I said, not pretty.
“He desperately wants to start a family because he didn’t have one growing up,” Chuck explains.
ABC Family fans will feel extra uncomfortable while they watch, because Chad’s girlfriend — slash unwitting victim — is played by Melissa and Joey star Taylor Spreitler. And even though the part is total 180 from the usual nice-guy fare Chuck is used to, he’s embracing his sociopathic persona with an open mind.
“I love trying different things and stepping out of my comfort zone,” he tells me. “As it turns out, it worked really well!”
(I guess Chuck is making up for lost time, since he never got to play “A!”)
