You know the expression, “You made your bed, now lie in it”? Does that also apply to the alleged murder you commit because the woman with whom you were having an affair turned into a crazed stalker?

The trailer here seems to want us to side with Joshua Jackson’s Dan, who is intent on proving his innocence after being convicted of murder. Don’t fall for it. The television version of the film will also give us the perspective of Lizzy Caplan’s Alex, which was missing in the original film, where Glenn Close basically just played the crazy lady. I suspect in Paramount+’s limited series, we’re going to find out not only that Alex has some mental illness but that Dan has been exploiting it. For sex. When Dan ends up in prison for the murder of Alex, my first thought is: He made his bed …

That said, while I never understood the sleazy appeal of Michael Douglas in the ’80s, I completely understand the appeal of sleazy Joshua Jackson.

Fatal Attraction will begin streaming on Sunday, April 30.
