Greg Kinnear stars in a Movie Fanatic exclusive clip from the upcoming comedy, Thin Ice. The film, opening February 17, features Kinnear as Mickey Prohaska. He’s a small town insurance agent looking for an easy way to take his business to the next level. Mickey is hoping success will help bring back his estranged wife, played by Lea Thompson, and allow them to jet to warmer pastures beyond their Wisconsin home. In our exclusive, Kinnear and Thompson star in a scene that finds him trying his best sales moves to get his ex to go with him on a business trip to Aruba. Will she go?
Thin Ice also stars Academy Award winner Alan Arkin and Billy Crudup. Arkin is a retired farmer whom Kinnear’s Mickey feels he can swindle to get that quick fortune. In the way of his plan is an off-his-rocker locksmith/ex-con (Crudup) who brings danger and double-crossing. From all appearances, he's someone who could push Mickey right to the edge.
In the vein of Fargo, this Midwestern black comedy keeps the audience guessing until the final moments to see if our unlikely hero manages to get that big break that will allow him to get his life in order.
