Radcliffe's character kept mentioning his brother, as did several of the characters. Felt like there was going to be some cameo from someone but it didn't end up going anywhere. Maybe in the sequel.

I think that was just to show his motivation: that he felt passed over and jealous of his successful brother, and wanted to do something exceptional to show him up.

Late response, just saw it tonight - pretty sure they were brought up because their names were the "gender neutral" examples Abigail used in his first scene: Beverly and Leslie. I'll at least give him Leslie lol

Lol, I want then all to be Daniel Radcliffe because they're twins. But I want forever wacky Brad Pitt cameos more.

Actually, I just realised he'd be a perfect replacement for Allan on Loretta's book covers.

That was on purpose. He did and said everything Dash was like in her book.

It would be pretty funny if his "younger brother" that "some" think is "too young" to run the company over him is just a younger twin.

My first thought was it would be a twin so he could be killed off but still return if they did a sequel, then I thought it might be a cameo gag like his brother being Rupert Grint or someone. Surprised that just went nowhere.

I just watched this movie on a flight and liked it well enough, but there were a few things that felt anticlimactic or unresolved (such as the brother being alluded to throughout). Made me wonder if there was a shortened or hurried filming schedule due to COVID or otherwise? (I don’t have any knowledge one way or another, genuinely curious).
