House of Lies (2012)

Don Cheadle as "Marty Kaan"

Charming, fast-talking consultant Marty Kaan and his team of MBA-toting colleagues charm smug, unsuspecting corporate fat cats into closing big deals while spending a fortune for the services of Kaan and his team. Kaan is not above using any means (or anybody) necessary to get what he wants. Members of Kaan's team include razor-sharp Ivy League alum Jeannie van der Hooven, lackadaisical womanizer Clyde Oberholt and math geek Doug Guggenheim, who isn't very successful with the ladies. Marty's ex-wife, Monica Talbot, is a consultant with a rival firm and, unsurprisingly, is his professional nemesis. Marty lives with his father, a retired psychoanalyst, and his young son, Roscoe.
