Actor Chris Noth is calling for a review of a controversial investigation into the death of Mark Fisher as he prepares to play a Brooklyn district attorney involved in the case.
Fisher was found shot dead in New York in 2003 after visiting the city alone for the first time, and two men - John Giuca and Antonio Russo - were found guilty of the murder two years later (05).
The trial sparked controversy as Giuca was convicted despite a lack of forensic evidence, and his mother Doreen Giuliano accused a juror of misconduct after going undercover in an attempt to prove the panel member had a prior connection to the case.
Sex and the City actor Noth is now set to star in an independent film based on the case, in which he will play former Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes, and the actor has urged the current District Attorney to review the investigation based on new evidence.
He tells the New York Daily News, "It makes of a real damn good drama."
