Everyone loves a thrilling story of love gone wrong.

In his new flick, The Work Wife, actor Kevin Sizemore, portrays a man caught up in a workplace romance that threatens to tear his marriage apart.

We had the chance to speak with the star of the film best known for his starring role in the Emmy-nominated AMC series Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462, about his upcoming project and directorial debut for a film called, The 7.

The Work Wife tells a tale of Sean (Sizemore), a married man landing a new job at an ad agency, and his assistant looking for more than a pay raise. Jen (Cerina Vincent), Sean’s assistant, does everything in her power to rip his marriage apart. Sizemore says when he first read the script, he was on the edge of his seat, and knew he had to play the role.

“When I read The Work Wife, I was literally yelling back and forth to my wife, Gina, in the main room giving her a play-by-play,” he said. “‘Honey, she tried to burn my house down! No way, she’s now in my house talking to my wife!’ I don’t think I’ve read a script that fast ever, so I knew I’d have a good time making it with director Michael Feifer.”

At first, Sizemore’s character finds himself flattered by Jen’s advances, but quickly realizes the danger she’s willing to put him and his family in.

“Initially Sean is flattered and is on Cloud 9, but that quickly fades when Sean is able to look past the visual beauty of Jen. Once Sean realizes the puzzle pieces don’t add up, he knows that she’s very dangerous and he has to come up with a plan to get away and protect his wife Lisa (Elisabeth Harnois).”

Despite the more serious tone of the show, Sizemore says working on set was a dream come true. In fact, if it were up to him, we would see far more of these characters every week on the small screen.

“[My favorite aspect of filming this movie was] the camaraderie among everyone from our director, Michael Feifer, to our DP, Jordi Ruiz Maso.  This is one of those projects I wish became a series, so I could go to work with them all the time,” he said.

As the star of the film, we asked for Sizemore’s “elevator pitch” for The Work Wife, and it left us in anticipation of what’s sure to be a thrilling film.

“When Sean Miller lands his dream job after being unemployed for six months, he thinks his life will change forever.  Little did he know that his newly appointed ‘work wife’ becomes infatuated with him and if he doesn’t play by her rules, he could not only loose his wife, but everything he’s spent his career working for.”

This past May, Sizemore starred in the highly anticipated season two penultimate episode of NBC’s Timeless‘, playing historical Rittenhouse sleeper agent Colonel Ryerson as the team partners with Harriet Tubman to thwart plans to alter the outcome of the Civil War.

While the former Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462 star showed fans how fun filming the NBC series was through images shared via his social media, it’s his other two projects, including the drama, Intensive Care, and his directorial debut, The 7, that really has him embracing his craft.

The 7 is a film that takes place in a bar and one night people who happen to be there realize they can’t get out,” he said. “Nothing’s like it was after they enter the bar and once it’s revealed why they’re there, they have two hours to make decisions that will alter their lives forever.  We’re planning on shooting that later on this summer!”

With all of the projects underway, we had to know; Who would he love to work with next?

“If we’re talking actors, it would be Sam Elliot and Octavia Spencer.  If I were choosing a director, it would be Ron Howard and Kathryn Bigelow.”
