Edgy, intense Berg, 34, who plays the volatile Dr. Billy Kronk on CBS' "Chicago Hope," temporarily left his day job to shoot his debut film. It is, he insists, a morality tale inspired by his own trips to Vegas several years ago.

"It seemed that Vegas opened the cages within men where various beasts lurked. These guys were looking for trouble, and I wondered what would happen if they found it?"
