More Information about the actors:

About Robert Carradine
Robert Carradine is one of Hollywood’s busiest actors. He just wrapped up Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and was last seen with Tom Selleck in Jesse Stone for CBS. In addition to shooting the Hallmark Channel’s Jane Doe, making the feature film, Deep Winter in Utah and appearing in the national tour of the award-winning play The Exonerated, he has lately kept busy with some notable performances in several independent films, including a standout turn opposite Ryan O’Neal in Slumber Party Slaughter. Carradine is still seen daily on the Disney Channel as bemused dad to Hilary Duff in the highly successful Lizzie McGuire TV series and movie. Over his 38-year career as an actor, writer, producer and director, he has more than 100 film, television and theatre credits to his name. In 1984, Robert Carradine became a household name and icon to millions of teenagers and 20-somethings when he perfected the role of Lewis Skolnick in the four-film Revenge of the Nerds comedy franchise, including the original blockbuster and Revenge of the Nerds IV: Nerds in Love, which earned him a co-producing credit.
Carradine's film debut came in 1972, when he starred alongside John Wayne in The Cowboys. Later he appeared in notable features such as Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets, Hal Ashby's Oscar
Ò-winning Coming Home, Samuel Fuller’s The Big Red One, Walter Hill's The Long Riders and John Carpenter’s Escape from LA, Body Bags and The Ghosts of Mars. He has also appeared in numerous television films, including Monte Walsh, with Tom Selleck; Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire; Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers; the critically acclaimed The Trial of the Chicago Eight; Double Crossed, with Dennis Hopper; and Showtime’s As Is, for which he earned a CableACE nomination. Carradine enjoyed a recurring role as Dr. Bruce Hartman in Nash Bridges and has a long list of guest-star credits on such TV hits as Law & Order, The Practice, ER, Kung Fu, NYPD Blue, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Pretender and The Twilight Zone.
Carradine was literally born into acting as the youngest son of legendary character actor John Carradine. A dynasty was born with brothers Keith and David, niece Martha Plimpton and daughter Ever Carradine. In his spare time, Carradine races cars and plays the guitar professionally.
