Cast

Chili Palmer(John Travolta), a Miami mobster, loan-sharks for Ray Bones(Dennis Farina), a violent thug with a big chip on his shoulder. Ray sends Chili to Vegas after a bad debt, and a casino boss enlists Chili to find an even bigger deadbeat: Harry Zimm(Gene Hackman), Hollywood player and producer of low-budget horror films. In Tinseltown, Chili meets Harry, as well as his scream- queen leading lady, Karen Flores(Rene Russo); Harry's drug-dealing financier, Bo Catlett(Delroy Lindo); and Karen's ex, Martin Weir (aka "Shorty")(Danny DeVito), a big star with an ego to match. Chili finds his Mafioso skills lend themselves quite nicely to what he's always really wanted to do: producing movies.
