Clark Gregg Writes, Directs & Stars in the First Trailer for 'Trust Me'
Despite dying in The Avengers in 2012, actor Clark Gregg has been rather busy as Agent Coulson on the ABC TV series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." We're not sure if he'll ever make it back to the big screen within Marvel's interconnected cinematic universe, but he at least found time to make it back behind the camera for his second directing effort Trust Me. The film follows Gregg as a down-and-out agent that comes across a hopeful new client that could blast him into the big time. Gregg also brought fellow Marvel star Sam Rockwell along for the ride as his nemesis, and while it doesn't look amazing, it's probably worth watching.
Here's the first trailer for Clark Gregg's Trust Me, originally from Apple:
Trust Me is written and directed by Clark Gregg, who made his directorial debut with the adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's Choke. Howard Holloway (Gregg) isa down-on-his luck agent for child actors but discovering a 13-year-old acting prodigy (Saxon Sharbino) just might catapult his tween client and 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). However, his new innocent young starlet may not be quite what she seems. Starz Digital Media releases the film on VOD on May 6th and limited theaters June 6th.

Still not sure about Clark Gregg outside of the Marvel universe, but he's got a great supporting cast. I'd totally watch this.

The trailer looks a little by-the-numbers, but still pretty good.

His acting in Shield is a bit funny, but so is the show, this looks alright though.

Gregg boasts a solid ensemble, almost like Favreau.

Yeah, I might look at this. It looks, I don't know, kinda normal... Comparing to shield or avengers type of garbage...

I liked the look of this movie. I can't remember a movie about the struggle of a talent agent before, it's a story I'm interested in checking out. Also Clark Gregg was hilarious in the To Do List.
