Jesse Metcalfe Tackles New Challenges in Hallmark's "A Beautiful Place to Die"
Ten years ago, actor Jesse Metcalfe made one of the best decisions of his career, accepting the lead in the Hallmark Channel movie Fairfield Road. The move to Hallmark proved successful and afforded him the opportunity to appear in four more films for the network, which eventually led to a starring role on the hit series Chesapeake Shores for the last four years. For his latest project, A Beautiful Place to Die: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery, the popular Hallmark fixture is switching gears, and channels (to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries), playing retired Boston police officer Jeff Jackson, whose dream of a quiet life fishing is derailed after he discovers the body of a mysterious visitor to the island floating in its waters. The chance to sink his teeth into a gritty mystery/drama, become an executive producer for the network and explore a character he felt an affinity for, were all things Metcalfe said were too good to pass up.
