Gerald McRaney flies in the face of his likeable Simon and Simon image in the made-for-TV movie "Easy Prey". McRaney plays real-life serial rapist/murderer Christopher Wilder, who, in early 1984, abducted a teen-aged girl from a California shopping mall. Repeatedly assaulting the girl and keeping her quiet with threats of death, Wilder forced her to accompany him on a crime spree that ranged from one end of the country to another. Shawnee Smith plays Wilder's terrified victim. In this movie, Jessica Steen has a brief appearance as another of Wilder's victims. Filmed in Canada, Easy Prey was first aired October 26, 1986.
