Starring in the film are Samantha Mathis as the heroine Dagny Taggart, Jason Baghe as the industrialist Henry “Hank” Rearden, and Esai Morales as the playboy Francisco “Frisco” d’Anconia.

Producer Harmon Kaslow said “We’re thrilled to have such a wonderful group of actors on board. In green-lighting part two, John and I decided to take a fresh look at everything and we couldn’t be happier with the results so far. The new cast are simply fantastic and bring a tremendous amount of experience and enthusiasm to the project.”

Filling out the cast are Patrick Fabian as James Taggart, Kim Rhodes as Lillian, Richard T. Jones as Eddie, Paul McCrane as Wesley Mouch, John Rubinstein as Dr. Ferris, Robert Picardo as Dr. Robert Stadler, Ray Wise as Head of State Thompson, Ary Gross as Ken Danager and Rex Linn as Kip Chalmers. A complete cast list is forthcoming on IMDB.

Duncan Scott, a screenwriter on the project and four time Emmy® award-winner, who worked extensively with Rand on the restoration of her film classic “We the Living” stated “It’s very exciting to have a cast that projects the sense of life that one would hope to see when bringing Rand’s iconic characters to the screen.”
