Former Wilmington resident, and One Tree Hill star, James Lafferty stars as an ex-billionaire hedge fund manager who loses his job and winds up working as a waiter in a waffle shop. Based on the memoir by Jimmy Adams of the same name, it’s the story of the unlikely friendship between Jimmy and Edward, played by Danny Glover, the ex-con cook who serves up hard lessons about life, finance, and grits.
