About Supporting Star Cast


The romantic comedy movie ‘Playing for Keeps’ became a huge success not just because of its leading actors Gerard Butler and Jessica Biel, but for many amazing supporting actors too, who have several major Hollywood blockbusters to their credit (as leading actors themselves). Let’s briefly go over them as follows:

Dennis Quaid
Dennis Quaid essays the role of Carl King in the movie ‘Playing for Keeps’ wherein he urges George to accept bribe for giving preferential treatment to his children. In real life Dennis hails from Houston, Texas and he studied at the University of Houston. Later, he moved to Los Angeles for pursuing a career in films where his elder brother Randy Quaid had already had some success under his belt. Dennis earned pretty good reviews for his performances in The Right Stuff (1983) and Breaking Away (1979). Apart from his interest in movies, Dennis is also a musician with the band named ‘The Sharks.’ Quite interestingly, he’s also a five handicap golfer and holds a flying license!

Uma Thurman
Uma plays Patti, the wife of Carl King in the movie. She’s in a complicated relationship with her husband and is sexually attracted towards George Dryer. Everyone knows that Uma Thurman is a name to reckon with in the Hollywood industry today. In real life, she was born in Boston, Massachusetts to parents from diverse backgrounds. While her mother was a socialite and a fashion model, her father is counted amongst the foremost Buddhist scholars in the United States.
Uma always had a towering appearance ever since she was small and used to be the tallest in her class throughout her schooling years. Her acting skills were honed from an early age as she used to actively participate in school plays. Her tall and lanky frame was considered perfect for the modelling world and she started taking up modelling assignments when she was just 15 years old. Some of her notable earlier appearances in Hollywood include The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (year 1988) and Dangerous Liaisons (year 1988). She worked in quality Hollywood movies up until the early 90s, but her biggest break came with the Quentin Tarantino’s much acclaimed blockbuster Pulp Fiction in the year 1994. It was the same movie for which Thurman received a nomination for an Academy award too.

Catherine Zeta-Jones
Catherine Zeta-Jones plays the role of Denise in the movie ‘Playing for Keeps’. She is an ex-sportscaster and has a huge personal interest in George Dryer. She plays an instrumental role in the movie by promoting George’s candidature for the position of sportscaster at ESPN and helps him get his life back on track.
In real life, Catherine Zeta-Jones comes from Wales in the United Kingdom. Her birth happened in the year 1969 and she already had some notable stage performances under her belt by the time she turned 16. Some of her notable Hollywood performances came in movies like The Phantom (1996), The Mask of Zorro (1998), The Haunting (1999), Entrapment (1999) and Traffic (2000). She won the Academy award for Best supporting role for a performance in the movie Chicago (2002). Later on, her other notable performances came in Intolerable Cruelty (2003), Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and The Legend of Zorro (2005).
