For an independent film, you have got to be impressed with the cast. Besides Astin and Oteri, Martin Mull, Mark Moses, Gigi Rice, Lil' JJ, Peter Jacobson, Mo Collins, Alex Rocco, Luis Chavez and Kevin Nealon have also agreed to have their names added to the callsheet.
Directed by Rob Schiller from a script by Alan Grossbard, the comedy will have Astin portray a failed horse trainer desperately trying to get back into the winners circle.
