Thomas Haden Church (Spider-man 3) plays the tough father, who is a former Marine and idolized his older son, while Jay Hernandez (Hostel, Grindhouse) plays a Marine who is also a dog trainer, and Lauren Graham (Bad Santa) plays Justin’s mom.
Boaz Yakin (Remember the Titans) wrote and directed the film.
