Cast List Incomplete
21 January 2009 | by lewstedmanSee all my reviews

A very funny movie not for the easily offended. Watch for the clever use of innuendo throughout the story. Also look for spoofs of classic scenes from classic movies.

I'm in at least five scenes and have lines. I play the leading lady's father, Huston Tulsey. I get screen credit in the final version, but am not in this list of cast members. I'm the straight man for a lot of the jokes.

Many of the cast and crew now work for PIXAR. A very creative group. If you listen carefully to recent PIXAR releases you may very well recognize Lou Romano's and Teddy Newton's voices or stay for the credits and see how many times the names of members of this film's cast and crew appear.
