Lutz will join a star-studded cast, which includes Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder, in the film about the psychologist, who developed the controversial Obedience Experiments at Yale University, where he studied the reactions of people who believed they were sending harmful electrical shocks to friendly strangers, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
