Robert Redford as Martin Bishop

Robert Redford stars as Martin Bishop (aka Martin Brice)

In college, he hacked into various computer systems with his buddy Cosmo, mostly as a prank, and Marty narrowly escaped a stint in jail…he went out to get pizza as the police were arriving, and he fled to Canada for years, coming back to the US only after assuming a new name and a new life.

He is, professionally speaking, a “sneaker.” He and his group of fellow sneakers sneak into buildings, computer systems, etc. in order to test a company’s security measures. It’s a living, but as they say, “not a very good one.”
