My Own Worst Enemy (2008)

But when the carefully constructed wall between them breaks down, these polar opposites are thrust into unfamiliar territory where each man is dangerously out of his element. Also starring Alfre Woodard (Desperate Housewives), Mike O’Malley (Yes Dear), Mädchen Amick (Gossip Girl) and Taylor Lautner (Twilight), plus powerful guest stars such as James Cromwell (LA Confidential).

Edward Albright is a man who lives two lives: while working as a ruthless and cynical secret agent for a clandestine government agency called the Janus Organization, he, under a hypnotic alter ego, lives as a comely family man, named Henry Spivey. Henry works in a downtown Los Angeles office and is married with a loyal wife Angie, and two teenage kids, Ruthy and Jackson. Edward is part of an experimental program called to “separate” his secret agent life from his suburban life with a computer created identity of Henry Spivey who is not aware of his real dominate personality nor that of his wife and children. “Henry” is not even aware that his co-worker at his company Tom Grady, is actually Agent Raymond Carter, his partner in the field. However, things take a turn when the implant in Edward’s brain begins to malfunction in which “Henry” re-emerges at unlikely times without being activated. Edward’s superior and handler, Mavis Heller, sees it as a threat to her company. As “Henry” comes to realize his other personality, he must try to save himself from a group of Russian mafia thugs who arrive in the country to locate and kill Edward (whom they think is him) to recover a secret briefcase “Edward” stole from Russia – with Edward’s help via notes and video recordings.
