Completing the cast are Gabriel Brown (Love & Money) as Pete Pfeifer, Sasha Diamond (Signficant Other) as Meghan Gotschell, Crystal Finn (Kingdom Come) as Jane Welch, Marcus Ho (Three Trees) as Russ Scott, Christopher Innvar (110 in the Shade) as Stanley Welch, Tyler Lea (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) as Eddie Welch, Talene Monahon (The Government Inspector) as Megan Currie, Brian Quijada (Oedipus El Rey) as Mitch Backes, Constance Shulman (Barbecue) as Darla London, and JD Taylor (The Last Match) as Derek Nelson.
