Ryan Caltagirone won out in a tough casting process that had many top notch actors. Complicating casting was the fact that the 2 lead brother characters had to be good actors and could pull off being brothers. Ultimately Ryan was a quality actor, professional, had a vulnerability to go with his leading man quality.
