Sean Kaufman plays Steven Conklin, handsome, a little vain, and a high achiever. Steven is Belly’s snarky older brother who is becoming his own man.

Tom Everett Scott plays Adam Fisher. Type-A personality who is a competitive, charismatic, workaholic finance guy, who thinks that money solves everything. He is married to Susannah Fisher.

Christopher Briney plays Conrad Fisher, the boy Belly has loved since forever. The boy who never even looked in her direction is finally starting to pay attention to her. It’s exhilarating to suddenly be an object of desire, but it’s also scary. Conrad is a straight-A student and a star athlete.

David Iacono plays Cam. Straight edged, cute, and book smart. Cam is a local boy with a skater look and a sweet personality. Even his awkward side is endearing.
