Luke Weil (was in denial of being rich when he was younger) - Sports gaming heir - thought the movie was tacky - told to “work but not worry, you’ll be set up” - Could get angry at people and say: “I can buy your family, so piss off” - Attended Browne University and only left his room for 8 academic events and still passed because of his wealth. - Compares losing money to losing a sibling - Wants to be indispensable- a lawyer or in business S.I. Newhouse IV (enjoys fencing) - Conde Nast Publications heir- Vogue, Allure, Wired, GQ, New Yorker, House & Gardens, Self Magazines. - Attends Haverford College. Does fencing. Lives at college because he feels safe and in control of things - was told if you don’t go to school or work in the company, you don’t get shit - Extremely concerned about being taken out of the inheritance or will - Was told “if you don’t work and put in your time you don’t get a share.” - Believes wealthy kids turn to drugs because they want to escape the mold of their family.
