Richard Gere Researches Role in Albuquerque

Updated:
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) _ Sheriff's officers here say Richard Gere is a gentleman.

Gere, researching a role he will play in the film ``The Flock,'' spent about four hours with deputies last week going door-to-door to check on registered sex offenders.

He also interviewed Bernalillo County Sheriff Darren White, a former child sex crimes detective.

``None of us knew what to expect, especially from someone as big a Hollywood star as Richard Gere,'' White said.

``The women commented on how good looking he was, and everyone else just thought he was a down-to-earth nice guy,'' White said.

In the movie, Gere will play a federal agent tracking a missing girl he believes was abducted by a sex offender he is investigating.

White said Gere wanted to meet with his deputies to get insight for his character. While riding with deputies, the star of ``Officer and a Gentleman'' went into the homes of several registered sex offenders and spent several minutes talking with them.

Production for the film is to start Monday in New Mexico.
