The men

  • Willie Conway (played by Timothy Hutton) — The only one of the group to move away to New York City, working as a semi-successful pianist. Generally the good guy in the group, his home life is somewhat fractured. His mother is deceased and his father is emotionally withdrawn. He also has a wild younger brother, Bobby (David Arquette).
  • Tommy 'Birdman' Rowland (played by Matt Dillon) — Head snow plower and former high school football star. Tommy seems to be ashamed that he never rose to his full potential in life. Known as the tough one of his group. Tommy seems not to have let go of his youth, and is still having an affair with Darian Smalls, an old high school flame. This puts a considerable strain on his relationship with his current girlfriend,Sharon.
  • Michael 'Mo' Morris (played by Noah Emmerich) — A factory manager by profession. Unlike his friends, humble Mo has happily settled down with a family, but still does have a temper when provoked. Admires Willie greatly for how far he's traveled in his life.
  • Kev (played by Max Perlich) — Snow plower and Tommy's co-worker. Kev is casted as kind of a pathetic little guy. He's not quite a dork or a geek but definitely would not be considered popular. However he is likely the most loyal of friends despite being a bit on the outer fringe of the circle. The wisecracking Kev has to reluctantly look the other way when Darian enters the picture, well aware of Tommy's relationship with Sharon which he doesn't approve of.
  • Paul Kirkwood (played by Michael Rapaport) — Snow plower who is obsessed with centerfold models. Paul can't let go of his old relationship with a waitress (Martha Plimpton) after she delivered an ultimatum to him. A crass guy who can't resist tormenting his ex-girlfriend by plowing snow into her garage door.
  • Stanley 'Stinky' Womack (played by Pruitt Taylor Vince) — The hardworking and humble proprietor/bartender of a local bar that he recently purchased and renovated. A generally good guy who knows the limits of right and wrong.
