The film, a tale of conjoined twins, was purchased by Sony Pictures Classics. “We enjoy each other’s company,” Michael has said about partnering with his brother. “It’s always good to have someone by you that understands. And, you know, we’re going from city to city doing this, and it’s real fun to have company.”

Polish was born in El Centro, California. And guess who shares his hometown: singer-actress Cher!

Polish was married to Jo Strettell from 1988 to 2004. The couple has one daughter, Jasper Polish, who appears in his movie, The Astronaut Farmer.
