Watch: Lee Kirk's 'Giant Mechanical Man' Trailer with Jenna Fischer
"Life is crazy, right?" Despite that unique title, this is actually a kind of quirky indie romantic comedy, starring Jenna Fischer as a young woman who has lost her way in life. The film is titled The Giant Mechanical Man, written and directed by Lee Kirk, and stars Fischer as well as Topher Grace, with freaky long hair, Malin Akerman, Chris Messina, Bob Odenkirk and Lucy Punch. This looks a bit funky with the giant mechanical man that the title refers to, but I think it also shows how underrated of an actor Chris Messina is, that he can play something odd like this and still do a great job. Give it a look below.

The Giant Mechanical Man is written and directed by Lee Kirk, making his directorial debut after writing, and appearing in, various shorts and films including Pants on Fire in '08. He is married to Jenna Fischer, who produced the film and of course stars in it.
