Fisher Stevens has a *very* small role in this. He portrays Rock Bork, a television news reporter. Other recognizable actors also appearing briefly in this film include Helen Hunt, Susan Sarandon, John Cusack, and Jeremy Piven.The movie itself is very good - given two "thumbs up" by Siskel and Ebert - but if you're looking for a Fisher fix, look elsewhere.
This film is available for purchase at the usual online video outlets.
Note: The film can often be seen on television during election times.
