Interview with Casper Van Dien of “County Line: No Fear” on INSP by Suzanne 5/17/23
This was a lot of fun. Casper has a lot of energy and humor. You should watch his new movie if you love drama, cop shows, or westerns, because it’s all three.

Re-tire-ment: the action or fact of leaving one’s job and ceasing to work.
That is how the dictionary defines retirement. My guess is that Sheriff Alden Rockwell is either missing that page in his dictionary or has chosen to overlook it altogether!
In the action crime-drama County Line: No Fear, the third installment of the successful County Line trilogy, the ornery, yet devoted Alden Rockwell is back and on the verge of retirement (much to the delight of his beloved Maddie, who has been pushing him towards this for years). However, when an unexpected, and criminally motivated, visit from the father of neighboring York County Sheriff, Jo Porter, brings about even more trouble, Alden cannot sit idly by.
When Zed Dalton, an ambitious and ruthless crime syndicate boss, sets up shop in Maksville County to enact revenge on Alden and Jo for involving themselves in his business, he isn’t quite prepared for the battle he’s up against. Alden, Jo and Interim Sheriff Dante Hill will go to any lengths to protect the counties they have vowed to serve. The action is non-stop, with many twists and surprising turns along the way!
Will Alden finally retire? Will Jo forgive her father for bringing this trouble to her doorstep? Will Zed get what’s coming to him? And what role does Zed’s mom play in all of this? Viewers will get answers to these questions, and more, on Saturday, May 27th at 8PM ET, when County Line: No Fear makes its exclusive television debut on INSP.
