Lifetime recently came out with its Cheerleader movie slate “Fear the Cheer” and revealed that the network will be airing six new movies every weekend starting from August 28. The first movie to premiere on the network is titled ‘Killer Cheer Mom’.
The story revolves around a young girl named Riley (Courtney Fulk), who is relocating to a new town with her dad James (Thomas Calabro), and stepmom, Amanda (Denise Richards). Riley decides to try out for the cheerleading squad and hopes that she’ll make it. But things get really wild when some cheerleaders from the group get unexpectedly expelled or injured under suspicious circumstances.
Did Riley get luck, or is her mom is doing something evil for her daughter to reach greater heights? The answer to these burning questions will be given when the movie premieres exclusively on Lifetime.
Let’s take a look at the cast of the movie.
Denise Richards as Amanda
One of the most prominent names in Hollywood, Richards took the world by storm by her gorgeous looks and brilliant acting in the mid-90s and early 2000s. She started her career as a professional model and traveled to cities like Paris, Tokyo, and New York to do commercials and photo shoots. In the 1990s, Richards appeared in several films and television shows such as ‘Loaded Weapon’, ‘Lookin’ Italian’ and ‘Against the Grain’.
Her first starring role in a wide theatrical release was ‘Starship Troopers’ in 1997. The movie earned $121.2 million globally and Richards was nominated for the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Female Newcomer. She followed this with a role in the erotic thriller film ‘Wild Things’ (1998) alongside Kevin Bacon, Matt Dillon, and Neve Campbell. The movie received positive reviews from critics as well as audiences and Richards was praised for her acting.
Since 2015, she was an integral part of the reality TV series ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ and once again, rose to fame after a lean period. However, the actress left the show in 2020 after several reports indicated that Bravo TV did not give her the money she asked for.

Born on February 3, 1959, Calabro began his acting career by appearing in various theatre productions in New York. His first role was as Oberon in William Shakespeare's ‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’. In 1984, he made his feature film debut with ‘Exterminator 2’. Meanwhile, the year 1985 saw him making his television debut with ‘Out of the Darkness’.
Calabro's most notable role was playing Dr. Michael Mancini on ‘Melrose Place’. He was the only cast member to stay on the show throughout its entire run from 1992 until 1999. He reprised the role of Mancini in another season of the show that aired in 2009.
‘Detention’, ‘Locker 13’, ‘Without A Trace’, ‘Law & Order’ and ‘CSI: NY’ are some of the high-end ventures he has appeared in.
Courtney Fulk as Riley
Courtney Fulk is making her debut in Hollywood with ‘Killer Cheer Mom’. The young actress will be sharing space with Denise Richards in the movie. Fulk will be next seen in the movie ‘Cheating Scandal’, which is scheduled to release in the second half of 2021.

Rockwell also had a cameo role in the popular TV series ‘Two and a Half Men’. The actress had several smaller roles in projects like ‘Freddie’, ‘How I Met Your Mother’, ‘90210’ and ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’.
Rockwell gained a lot of prominence after her role in the series ‘Scandal’. Although she appeared in just two episodes, they were enough to make her a fan favorite. Her first major role in a TV series came in 2017 when she was cast as Emma Dowell in ‘Being Mary Jane’.
