Trailer For Clark Gregg’s Satire TRUST ME


Clark Gregg began a second career as a writer/director of indie features ahead of his superhero duties in Marvel’s cinematic universe. His second directing effort, the comedy Trust Me premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and it’s now headed to theaters.

A follow-up to his directorial debut, the adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk‘s Choke, co-stars Sam Rockwell, Felicity Huffman, Allison Janney, William H. Macy, Niecy Nash, Amanda Peet, Molly Shannon, Saxon Sharbino, and Paul Sparks. Seems like a pretty solid ensemble.

This Hollywood satire follows a down-on-his luck agent (Gregg) who discovers a 13 year-old who could be the next big thing. Choke co-star Rockwell appears as a rival agent.

Trust Me will be released on VOD May 6th followed by a theatrical run on June 6th.

Watch the trailer and poster below.

Clark Gregg leads an all-star cast in this sharp comedy as Howard Holloway, a down-on-his luck agent for child actors and truly one the last good guys left in Hollywood. After discovering a 13-year-old acting prodigy (newcomer Saxon Sharbino), he is poised to close the deal of a lifetime which would catapult his tween client and, at long last, himself, into the big time. With the support of his gorgeous new neighbor (Amanda Peet), he must wrangle the actress’ volatile, overprotective father (Paul Sparks), dodge a scheming producer (Felicity Huffman), and outwit his uber-slick nemesis (Sam Rockwell). As he arrives on the brink of the Hollywood dream that’s eluded him for a lifetime, he begins to sense that his innocent young starlet may not be quite what she seems.
