Ahead of its VOD and DVD release this March, a trailer has arrived online for the new action thriller Check Point, which sees WWE star Bill Goldberg starring alongside Kenny Johnson (The Shield), William Forsythe (Boardwalk Empire), Fred ‘The Hammer’ Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn) and the late Ricky Harris (Everybody Hates Chris) in his final screen role.
Check Point follows a local vagrant (Johnson) who discovers a ‘sleeper cell’ home-grown Terrorist plot in a small town where everyone knows each other, or so they thought. With the help of his best friend (Goldberg), he must gather a team of unlikely heroes to rise up to protect their country. In Ricky Harris’ last film role, the late actor played a former U.S. Army veteran who helps foil the plot to attack the U.S. government. The film touches on difficult topics, such as war veterans and Ptsd.

Harris, who died of a heart attack in December at the age of 54, left an indelible impression on everyone he met, actor William Forsythe tells People.
“He had this way about him — such humility,” he says of his costar. “We met on set and he came over and was so respectful. The way he presented himself was impressive. We had an instant bond — it took place right there on camera.”
