Selected by the Casting Directors Branch.

Barry Levinson made his directorial debut with his own Oscar-nominated script—an evocative, seriocomic portrait of a group of arrested adolescents in 1959 Baltimore—which casting director Ellen Chenoweth filled with memorable players, from the smallest role to the leads. The ensemble includes Kevin Bacon as hard-drinking Fenwick, Mickey Rourke as smooth-talking Boogie, Daniel Stern as the obsessed record collector Shrevie, Ellen Barkin as his beleaguered wife Beth, and Paul Reiser in his film debut as the droll Modell.
