Canadian actress/model/activist Pamela Anderson was discovered at a B.C. Lions football game, leading to a contract with Labatt to become the company’s Blue Zone girl. Due to her growing popularity, Anderson then moved to L.A. and spent six seasons on the hit family sitcom Home Improvement.

Eugene Levy has appeared in over 50 motion pictures, seven of which have topped the $100 million mark. His box-office success in films like Bringing Down the House, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, the Father of the Bride franchise, and Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock has helped establish him as one of Hollywood’s most popular comedic character actors.

Teaming up with Christopher Guest, Levy earned critical acclaim for co-writing and co-starring in Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, For Your Consideration, and A Mighty Wind. His work in A Mighty Wind garnered him a Grammy Award and a New York Film Critics Circle Award, along with a Golden Globe nomination for Best in Show.

Ryan is the yin to Sheldon’s yang, a sensitive, slightly metrosexual former house husband who is financially set thanks to his divorce settlement from a surgeon. While married, Ryan developed a taste for the finer things in life, making him Danny’s go-to guy when trying to impress new dates. He’s the classic middle child, who always felt ignored as a kid. While his dad worked two jobs and his mom was busy caring for baby Danny, Ryan quietly helped around the house without any thanks. He repeated that role in his marriage as the man behind the woman, until he caught his wife cheating with another doctor.

Sheldon is Danny’s meddlesome older brother. An overbearing salesman whose hobbies are watching sports and competitive karaoke, he’s oblivious to many of the cultural changes that have happened since 1990. He’s bossy, politically incorrect and stubborn. He is also, ironically, a gifted salesman, yet never seems to have any money. As the oldest child, Sheldon has always felt it was his responsibility to take care of his two brothers, especially after their parents passed away. And even though they are all grown men now, he still thinks that he knows more than they do.
