Fortt, 25, will portray the late Redskins legend Sean Taylor on an Investigation Discovery program. He auditioned for the part last year, and ironically, the role of Taylor's father (Pedro) will be played by Fortt's father, Guy Fortt. The show, titled "The Perfect Murder," incorporates real-life interviews and reenactments of homicide cases to detail how detectives solve intricate mysteries.
The femoral artery in Taylor's leg was severely damaged from the bullet, leading to significant blood loss. He went into a coma and never regained consciousness; dying one day later. Only 24 years old, Taylor was a family man with a promising football career ahead of him.
