Although she and Jason O’Mara carry the leading roles in this movie, many of the actors playing secondary characters have impressive resumes.

Some of her varied roles include appearances in Singin’ in the Rain, as well as voice work in the 1973 animated movie Charlotte’s Web and the 2001 kids’ movie Rugrats In Paris: The Movie. Leonardo Nam who stars as crime witness John Cho also shows up in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, the action drama Vantage Point andThe Perfect Score.
