The cast stars Ben Stiller as Artie Shaughnessy, Edie Falco as Bananas Shaughnessy and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Bunny Flingus, with Thomas Sadoski as Billy Einhorn, Alison Pill as Corrinna Stroller, Mary Beth Hurt as Head Nun, Christopher Abbott as Ronnie Shaughnessy, Halley Feiffer as Little Nun, Susan Bennett as Second Nun, Jimmy Davis as Military Policeman and Tally Sessions as White Man.

The production team includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design) and Brian MacDevitt (lighting design).
