I've adored this actress forever, going back to 1970 ("They Shoot Horses, Don't They?") through "Die Hard", through "Salem's Lot", "Die Hard" and NBC's "Parenthood".

I've been working with Dale for 15 years on numerous projects. She is truly one of the finest (and sweetest) actors I've ever known.

"Wardell" and "Dr. Eve" have been dear friends for almost 20 years. I can't even count the number of projects we've done together!

Kirk is the ORIGINAL "Ty" from both the Hollywood stage play and the film "Sordid Lives". It's so great to see him back in "Sordid Wedding"!

Such a lovely lady and wonderful actress. Her portrayal of "Mrs. Barnes" is a little too reminiscent of the Baptist "church ladies" I grew up with.

I've worked with Scott in "Southern Baptist Sissies" (stage) and other projects. His portrayal of "Roger, the hairdresser" in "Sordid Wedding" is funny and amazingly poignant.

Cassie is a LEGEND in Dallas... the hysterical, sharp-tongued emcee at The Rose Room. It's so cool to see her on the "big screen". Somebody give her a series already!

Emerson is not only a producer of "Very Sordid Wedding", he also plays the bisexual serial killer "Billy Joe". (Billy Joe's theme music is one of my favorites pieces in the film!). And Kyle is my (very) significant other!

Louise is also a producer of "Very Sordid Wedding" and has a hysterical role as "Aunt Little Neecy". This is our fourth collaboration together, and I couldn't be happier.

These guys play Bubba's Bar regulars "Odell" and (wooden-legged) "G.W.". I've known and worked with both these guys are other Del Shores' projects and it's always a pleasure!

Every "Sordid Lives" fan knows and loves poor Vera (and her ever-growing prayer list!). Lorna is a doll and one of the hardest-working TV/Film character actresses in the biz!
