Boiler Room Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this drama that explores greed and corruption in American business, [[Performer~P216061~Giovanni Ribisi~giovanniribisi]] plays Seth Davis, an intelligent and ambitious college dropout who runs a casino in his apartment. Eager to show his father that he can succeed, Seth lands a job with a small stock brokerage firm. He is given a space in the company's "boiler room," where he makes cold calls to prospective clients. As it turns out, Seth has a genuine talent for cold calling, which gains him the approval of his superiors, the admiration of his father, and the attentions of one of his co-workers, Abby Hilliard ([[Performer~P43114~Nia Long~nialong]]). However, the higher up the ladder Seth rises, the deeper he sinks into a quagmire of dirty dealings, until he's breaking the law in order to keep his bosses happy and his paychecks coming. The Boiler Room also features [[Performer~P216143~Tom Everett Scott~tomeverettscott]], [[Performer~P195366~Scott Caan~scottcaan]], [[Performer~P215606~Jamie Kennedy~jamiekennedy]], [[Performer~P37063~Nicky Katt~nickykatt]], and [[Performer~P426~Ben Affleck~benaffleck]] in a cameo as the headhunter who brings Seth into the firm.
