Boiler Room chronicles the rise and fall of Seth Davis (Giovanni Ribisi), an enterprising university drop-out who, determined to prove his worth to a demanding father, takes a job at a small brokerage firm. There, in the company's Boiler Room, where young men eager to earn their fortunes work the phones, Seth soon masters the art of the cold call and with his new job, begins to regain his father's respect. But the Boiler Room quickly draws Seth into a world of corruption and greed, ultimately jeopardising all that he has gained, and all that he had before.
Nia long portrays co-worker Debbie Hilliard who becomes involved with Seth, while Vin Diesel plays Chris Varick, a young broker who teaches Seth the ways of the "Chop Shop". Ron Rifkin appears as Seth's father, a New York city judge, while Ben Affleck makes a cameo appearance as the man who lures Seth into the illicit brokerage house.
Also starring Tom Everett Scott, Scott Caan, Jamie Kennedy, Nicky Katt and Taylor Nichols. Written and directed by Ben Younger.
