Meet the players from "Billionaire Boys Club"

The cast of "Billionaire Boys Club".

Not to be confused with Pharrell Williams and Nigo's international clothing label of the same name, the upcoming biographical crime drama, "Billionaire Boys Club" marks its big screen debut since the real life high-profile murder case back in 1987.

It was also the same year where NBC produced the two-part miniseries, which earned four Emmys and two Golden Globes.

With the star-studded movie now in cinemas, let's take a look at some of the players below.

1) Ansel Elgort as Joe Hunt

Joseph Henry Gamsky or better known as Joe Hunt is the mastermind behind the investment group known as the Billionaire Boys Club. Apart from his role as the club's group leader, he is also responsible for organising the get-rich-quick Ponzi scheme as well as the murder of the investor and con man, Ron Levin (Kevin Spacey). Ansel Elgort's role of Joe Hunt was previously played by Judd Nelson thirty-one years ago in NBC's two-part miniseries of the same name.

2) Taron Egerton as Dean Karny

Dean Karny is Hunt's best friend and a professional tennis player. He is also responsible as the club's second-in-command. The role is played by "Kingsman" helmer Taron Egerton, who now explores a role in the crime genre that is rather far apart from his superhero like spy skills.

3) Jeremy Irvine as Kyle Biltmore

Although there is little info regarding Jeremy Irvine's role as Kyle Biltmore, all we know is that he plays one of the members of the Billionaire Boys Club. He also serves as Rosanna Tickpurth's love interest played by the late Carrie Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd.

4) Ryan Rottman as Scott Biltmore

Scott Biltmore is one of the wealthy twins (the other is Kyle), who happens to be among the first investors of the Billionaire Boys Club. He is also well-known for being one of the Maybelline owner's adopted sons.

5) Thomas Cocquerel as Charlie

Charlie is one of the founders of the Billionaire Boys Club. The role is played by Thomas Concquerel, the 27-year-old Australian actor who first earned his big break in 2015's "Kidnapping Mr. Heineken".

6) Kevin Spacey as Ron Levin

Ron Levin is the major cause responsible for shaking things up in the once-lucrative Billionaire Boys Club. The Beverly Hills entrepreneur, who invested in the club, ended up scamming Hunt and the rest of the members millions of dollars in a Ponzi scheme.
