‘The Crash’ Clip: John Leguizamo, Dianna Agron Brainstorm to Thwart a Stock Market Attack (Exclusive Video)
The Aram Rappaport thriller also stars Frank Grillo, Christopher McDonald, Minnie Driver, Maggie Q, AnnaSophia Robb, Mary McCormack, Ed Westwick and Andrew James Allen.
John Leguizamo is on the brink of a breakthrough in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive clip of The Crash.
Set in a future when the U.S. economy is on the brink of another massive financial crisis, the thriller stars Frank Grillo as Guy Clifton, a federally indicted stock trader who is secretly enlisted by the federal government to help thwart a cyber-attack aimed at the stock markets that could permanently cripple the economy. Having only ever been fueled by his love of money, he fully intends to use his insider knowledge of this world catastrophe for personal gain — until he unearths the organization behind the attack and discovers its motives.
In the film, John Leguizamo plays George Diebold, a wheelchair-ridden stroke victim who is also the foremost expert on the stock market’s computer systems. The clip sees Dianna Agron consulting with him about how to find the source of the attack.
Written and directed by Aram Rappaport, the Vertical Entertainment release (out today in select theaters and on demand) also stars Christopher McDonald, Minnie Driver, Maggie Q, AnnaSophia Robb, Mary McCormack, Ed Westwick and Andrew James Allen.

We’re getting a first look at Season 2 of praised Civil War-drama Mercy Street, set to premiere January 22 at 8 PM on PBS.
Mercy Street follows the doctors, nurses and soldiers, as well as free, enslaved and contraband African Americans and other residents of the war-torn city of Alexandria, VA, as they navigate the new world emerging from the most cataclysmic event in our country’s history.
Season 2 continues to explore life in the chaotic city of Alexandria, the complicated interpersonal dynamics of Dr. Foster, Nurse Mary and the Mansion House staff, the increasingly precarious position of the Green family and the changing world of the burgeoning black population. The second season will take the viewer closer to the war and into the halls of Confederate power, all set against the intensifying war, starting with the Seven Days’ Battle and culminating with Antietam.
The new season also delves deeper into the lives of newly freed African Americans, exploring – among other areas – life in a contraband camp, where formerly enslaved African Americans are forced to confront horrific living conditions and disease, but also get a glimpse of freedom.
New actors and guest stars introduced in Season 2 include Patina Miller, Brian F. O’Byrne, Bryce Pinkham, Lune Renee, Chris Wood, William Mark McCullough and Nyambi Nyambi. They join returning cast members Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Josh Radnor, Gary Cole, Peter Gerety, Hannah James, Brad Koed, Norbert Leo Butz, Tara Summers, McKinley Belcher III, Jack Falahee, AnnaSophia Robb, Donna Murphy, L. Scott Caldwell, Suzanne Bertish, and Luke MacFarlane.
Mercy Street is executive produced by Ridley Scott; David W. Zucker of Scott Free, Lisa Q. Wolfinger and David Zabel.
