Trivia

Casting the role of Abe turned out to be extremely difficult. The directors' initial choices were either unavailable (eg Billy Bob Thornton) or passed on the role (eg Bill Paxton). 'Gary Cole' and 'William Sadler' both auditioned; Cole was the studio's choice and was offered the part. The day before filming it became clear that Cole's schedule wouldn't allow him to participate, and so the role was offered to 'Christopher McDonald' the night before filming started. While McDonald was on the set the next day being fitted for a costume, it was discovered that his schedule did not allow him to be available for the dates that the production required him. After deciding the that the scheduled couldn't be rearranged to accommodate him, the role was offered over the phone to 'Christopher Lloyd' , a friend of cinematographer Thomas E. Ackerman. Lloyd was simultaneously offered a role in Haunted Lighthouse (2003) which he preferred, and so he passed. The role was finally offered to Sadler, who arrived on set and had only 60 minutes to meet and form a relationship with 'Shia LaBeouf' before their big emotional scene together. See more »

Hold your breath and stomp your feet
17 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film rates an "8" for the pleasure it was to watch this mess. What happens when a cocky first time director (Jason Mann) pushes around Mentor/Producer's Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and the big wigs at HBO - "The Leisure Class". Mann, a Columbia University student director in the MFA program, beat out several other qualified student directors for the opportunity to direct a $3 million HBO film, working along side Affleck, Damon, the Farrelly brothers (Peter and Bobby - "There's Something About Mary"), Season 1 Winner Pete Jones and HBO movie exec Len Amato. Over the season of the show, the audience watched as Mann stomped his feet and held his breath regarding his demands. What should have been a season about a first time direct making a large film, instead turned out to be season on what it takes to be a Line Producer, as Jeff Balis and Effie Brown fought tooth and nail to hold the production together. When all the dust settled and "The Leisure Class" aired, neither Mann, Affleck, Damon or HBO came out winners.
