Actor Colton Haynes realizes a personal dream this week when he makes his Lifetime movie debut in Swindler Seduction. The project was double the fun for Haynes as he plays identical twin brothers, Steve and Mitch, both charming and engaging, who make a living out of swindling unsuspecting marks. The film is another in the network's ripped-from-the-headlines franchise, however, when joining the project Haynes had no idea it was taken from a specific story. "I didn't find out until we were almost finished filming," he laughed during an exclusive interview with MediaVillage. "I knew it was based on true events, but I didn't know it was specifically about [one] certain story. I hadn't seen the documentary it's based on and tried to stay away from it as I didn't have confirmation it was specifically based on true stories.
