The Random Caruso centers on Harvey, a preening film actor and his would be screenwriter assistant Tom. They manipulate one another sufficiently enough to ensure failure.
In this bleak comedy Tom tries to keep a film project from falling apart. All he has to do is keep Harvey engaged in the project, the director alive, and a close watch on an ambitious actress who Harvey meets as she is waiting tables at a restaurant. Sam Weisman is featured as George Tobias, a studio mogul heavily invested in the film.
