A difficult gestation period led to Nick Cassavetes' ALPHA DOG being delayed and facing possible legal battles after the real-life subject of the film (alleged kidnapper and murderer Jesse James Hollywood) objected to his portrayal. The cinematic version of Hollywood is named Johnny Truelove and played by Emile Hirsch. Truelove is a wild 18-year-old who deals drugs for a living and hangs out with his posse, who revolve around a core of Frankie, Elvis and Tiko. When a client of Truelove's, Jake Mazursky is unable to pay off his crystal-meth debt, the group kidnaps his 15-year-old stepbrother, Zack, who becomes a Patty Heart-like accomplice in his own abduction. Indeed, Zack positively revels in his own abduction. Indeed, Zack positively revel in his new position and lives it up with the boys at every opportunity he gets.
