plays a child psychologist(!) assigned the task of virtually
entering the mind of a serial killer (D'onofrio) in order to
discover the whereabouts of his latest kidnap victim. Vaughn
is the FBI agent who partners with Lopez in this bizarre journey.

is more buttoned-up and cynical than Vaughn about the whole
virtual mindtrip thing. (Go figure!)
