Wannabe actors become regulars in the stylish neo-lounge scene; Trent teaches his friend Mike the unwritten rules of the scene.
Friends of the crew lived in the Hollywood Hills on Temple Hill Drive. Two of the four residents, Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, produced the Twilight movies. Also in attendance were actors Mike White and Adam Scott, Jon Favreau's downstairs neighbor at the time. Scott had no idea what all the cameras were for.

At the end of the movie when the cast is shown (3 pic) the names of the starring actors' parents appear again: $100 Gambler: Vernon Vaughn and $5 Winner: Joan Favreau
