Anyways, do you think I can get by with my lighting package or should I try to rent some lights if my budget will allow. I was thinking it would be nice to rent 2 Kino fat mans.
Anyone have experience with this sort of overhead florescent look?

The shoot is a short, with this location being where most of the action takes place. In the scene the prisoner is a guy who harmed the visitors daughter, the prisoner is on death row and it all takes place during the last few hours of his life. So the father is trying to talk to the prisoner and understand him and kinda get past all of his built up anger... that's the jist.
I am not trying to do anything crazy, I just want it to be more interesting the drab overhead lighting without completely losing that feel. I am concerned about it looking too flat. So anything I can do to spice it up I want to try.
I really appreciate all of the advice guys, and I apologize for not giving enough information in my first post.

btw.. if the table is white you will have a built in bounce card for their Fill... or you could place a piece of white showcard on the table as a return for those overhead 2Ks. Also, using Snoots on the 2Ks can save you a lot of time controlling the light. I love Snoots!
If you don't already own this book... get it asap FILM LIGHTING by Malkiewicz.
