Meet the Manny Dearest Lead Cast:
Ashley Scott as Karen Clark
Scott has been on TV for years and her most known role is as Helena Kyle/Huntress from the WB show, Birds of Prey. She may not be beating bad guys like she did as Huntress (though she did in Fatal Defense), but you can expect to be entertained nonetheless. She stars as Karen Clark, a single mother who hires a male nanny to help take care of her kids.
Mitch Ryan as Alex Stanley
Ryan gets to play the male lead as Alex Stanley, the manny hired to help out with Karen’s two sons. But he begins to get obsessive and takes his job to another level, including murder! His name already sounds made up, so that’s the first clue not to let him anywhere near you! Alex wants the Clark family for himself and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen. If you think Karen has a problem with that, then you guessed right. Is anyone else getting The Boy Next Door vibes from this movie?
