Does anyone know what happend to the guy who played Cobb. He's brilliant in this film and I would love to see him in more films or TV.
Or did he just do the film as a favour to Nolan.

I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that most, if not all, of the actors in Following were acting in the film as a side-job for Nolan as they had their own jobs/careers. Thus Nolan had to shoot on weekends to accomodate this. I think that after Following, many of them went back to their careers and didn't pursue acting full-time.

Well it's a shame if Alex Haw didn't then, he's a top actor if you ask me.

It always amazes me how Nolan pulled out such great performances from such inexperienced actors.

All three of the main characters of that film aren't really seen any more. Jeremy was in Batman Begins but I don't think he'll ever do another big part for Nolan's films.

Lucy Russell has had quite a bit of small work:

She's the woman talking about Batman when Bruce is at the restaurant and his guests are "swimming"
