INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Although he’s best known as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., actor Clark Gregg is about to become an agent of a very different persuasion.
Gregg is the star, writer and director of Trust Me, a new drama about a down-and-out talent agent. The erstwhile Phil Coulson plays Howard Holloway, a talent agent for child actors, currently in a downswing career-wise. His prospects pick up when he catches wind of an up-and-coming prodigy, played by newcomer Saxon Sharbino. It’s a make-or-break moment for both the talent and the talent agent.
The trailer shows a healthy blend of humor and humanity, and is chock-full of all-star names, like William H. Macy, Sam Rockwell, Molly Shannon, Allison Janney, Amanda Peet, Felicity Huffman and Niecy Nash.
Trust Me arrives on VOD on May 6.
