I listened to the book by Mark Owen outlining the same events. While I am never a "book is better than the movie" snob, in this case, I feel that I am satisfied and feel no need to see the movie.
By the same token, I really feel that the character of "Jen" or "Maya" in the movie, is a great character who develops well in the book. So maybe if the movie focuses solely on her, I am more interested.
Or maybe it will be something to watch a few years down the road when the book is less fresh on my mind.

I'm not sure they're cameos, per se, they're just recognizable actors filling both big and small roles. But yeah, lots of TV's best shows were represented --- Friday Night Lights, Parks & Rec, Sopranos, Mad Men, Boston Legal, Game Of Thrones, Lost, and probably a dozen more.
