In Junk, Steven Pasquale plays Robert Merkin, an investment banker who has just landed the cover of Time Magazine in 1985. Hailed for his philosophy that “debt is an asset,“ Merkin is attempting to re-shape the market, the rules, and the world through a new perspective and an attempt to take over an iconic American company.
