A young wannabe stock tycoon named Barry Keenan came up with a harebrained scheme to kidnap Sinatra Jr. and hold him for a ransom of $240,000.

Barry succeeded in taking the singer at gunpoint but after that, it’s one badly improvised move after another, until Barry bungled his way into prison.

Grant Gustin is also a singer who aside from being easily recognized for playing the Comics speedster, is known for the role of Sebastian Smythe on the Fox series Glee.
