Sean Taylor, Washington Redskin safety, was tragically killed in 2007 during a home invasion. Khairi Fortt, 2010 Stamford High grad who signed a reserve-future contract with the Redskins, will play Taylor. The 25-year old auditioned for the role in October and his father will portray Taylor’s father.
Fortt has played for the New Orleans Saints, Cincinnati Bengals, Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks.
The five suspects in the murder of Taylor were found guilty and convicted.
