Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
The last time we saw Danny Ocean's crew, they were paying back ruthless casino mogul Terry Benedict after stealing millions from him. However, it's been a while since they've come back together, which is all about to change. When one of their own, Reuben Tishkoff, builds a hotel with another casino owner, Willy Bank, the last thing he ever wanted was to get cut out of the deal personally by the loathsome Bank. Bank's attitude even goes so far as to finding the amusement in Tishkoff's misfortune when the double crossing lands Reuben in the hospital because of a heart attack. However, Danny and his crew won't stand for Bank and what he's done to a friend. Uniting with their old enemy Benedict, who himself has a vendetta against Bank, the crew is out to pull off a major plan; one that will unfold on the night Bank's newest hot spot opens up. They're not in this for the money, but for the revenge. Written by
Roman Nagel tells Danny and Rusty, 'You're like the Morecambe and Wise of the thievery world, but even they went off the boil after a while.' British comedy duo Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise pulled in audiences of more than 20 million in their 1970s heyday; their material is often thought to have deteriorated after 1978 when they left the BBC.

The "Banks" Hotel is a facade, a farce, and the twisted, arced shape of all three annexes, which are shown independent of each other, would make high-speed elevators, such as the ones Yen are shown navigating between, a complete impossibility, since they would no longer be level as traveling along the arc of the building. The elevators shown are clearly in a straight shaft. See more »
