Eric Stoltz starred in and produced “Fort McCoy”. He plays Frank Stirn who arrives at the camp as the new barber since he is unable to enlist due to a heart murmur. Brendan explained to Media Blvd. “His “action” is limited to being a barber for the brave men going off to fight and it’s his story of working through this insecurity and finding his place in life, war, and his own family.”

Brendan Fehr plays Sgt. Dominic Rossi who has already done a tour in Tunisia and is now working as military police on the base. “I am a guide of sorts, liaison even, to this family taking up residence on the base where this story all takes place.”
