Adam Rothenburg
Diane Lane, Katie Holmes, and Queen Latifah star in Mad Money as three women out to rob the National Reserve Bank. In the film, up and coming actor Adam Rothenburg plays Katie Holmes' husband. His dim bulb conspirer almost wrecks their plans, throwing a mean monkey wrench into the situation. Alas, he damn near steals the show with his idiotic antics.
Born and raised in New York, Rothenburg was excited about getting to work with such a wonderful cast. He sites both Ted Danson and Katie Holmes as on-set confidants that helped him learn the ropes of the business. Not only can Adam be seen in this month's Mad Money, he will also soon be sharing the screen with Mariah Carey in Tennessee.
I recently got to sit down with Rothenberg and talk to him about his ultra-famous co-stars. We also chatted a bit about cribbage and losing at backgammon. Seems he owes Mad Money co-star Roger Cross a mad amount of cash.

One last question. You have an upcoming movie called Tennessee. How was that experience and what was it like getting to work with Mariah Carey?
That, again, was great. I am always surprised when I meet super famous people. It is not that exciting. Well, it's not that. It's just that they are so real. Everyone on set is very nervous on that first day. We want people to like us. So you generally come together pretty perfectly, because you have a common goal. Mariah Carey was really nice. She was great. And I'm sure we will hear more about the film as it gets closer to its release date.
