The cast for this movie has been chosen with care. Sugarman said, “The actors playing the Beatles are an extraordinary group who ooze that very visceral feeling of 60’s Britain and portrayals will be charmingly authentic to Ed Sullivan perfectly.” He also mentioned Jay Leno as someone who can capture what it was like back then on American television when he hosts his own show every night in present-day America!
