VH1 Vintage: Zach Braff Knows You Love His Luscious Lips

17 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Zach Braff doesn’t need us to tell him that people are crazy about his pillowy lips. And because he’s been blessed with such natural beauty, he’s not going to deny his friends the pleasure of receiving a big fat wet one.

The actor is currently starring in Bullets Over Broadway along with promoting new film Wish I Was Here, the Kickstarter turned Sundance Festival feature featuring his longtime friend Kate Hudson. But back in 2007, he really just wanted to talk about his kissing pals Amanda Peet and Jason Bateman. According to some important anthropological research, it appears he was also paving the way for duck face around that same time:

In honor of Throwback Thursday, watch Dr. Dorian explain how much he appreciates you loving his luscious lips in the video above.

Exclusive: Check Out The DVD Box Art For Trust Me, Starring Clark Gregg

8 July 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Anchor Bay Entertainment will be bringing Trust Me, a dark comedy-drama which The Avengers actor Clark Gregg wrote, directed and starred in, to DVD on August 26th, and We Got This Covered is pleased to be able to exclusively unveil the DVD box art for the movie.

Trust Me stars Gregg as a down-on-his-luck agent for Hollywood child stars who, despite his good heart, has a bad habit of letting his mouth get away with him, which means he often loses clients to his slick arch-nemesis Aldo Shocklee (Sam Rockwell). After stumbling across a 13-year-old acting prodigy (Saxon Sharbino), he finds himself on the precipice of closing a massive deal which would work to catapult both himself and his client onto the A-list. However, as he continues to work with the young actress, he becomes troubled by signs that she may not be as innocent as initial appearances would suggest. »

5 Celeb Moms Who Battled Postpartum Depression

28 June 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | newser.com | See recent newser news »

Postpartum depression affects up to 13% of women—including these nine celebrity moms rounded up by The Stir . A sampling: Amanda Peet suffered from "fairly serious" depression after her daughter was born, she revealed in 2008. "I want to be honest about it because I think there’s still so much shame when you have mixed feelings about being a mom instead of feeling this sort of 'bliss,'" she said at the time. "I think a lot of people still really struggle with that, but it’s hard to find other people who are willing to talk about it." Lisa Rinna »

Film Review: ‘Trust Me’

8 June 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s certainly humor running through writer-director-star Clark Gregg’s “Trust Me,” the tale of an inept agent for child actors; it’s just that not all of it feels intentional. Mixing comedy, drama, satire and noir, the Marvel actor’s second outing behind the camera plays for the same kind of uncomfortable laughs that his 2008 dramedy “Choke” did, but this one gazes so deeply into Hollywood’s navel that, with the affable Gregg in practically every scene, it ultimately can’t escape the whiff of a vanity project. In limited release day-and-date with VOD on various platforms, the pic figures to play best among fans and friends of the actors. Bizzers will be amused.

The first of a pair of bookend scenes sets up the tonal mish-mash, as a badly injured Howard (Gregg), waxes philosophical about life. Fade out, and we meet the agent as he’s late to »

Stars: Clark Gregg, Saxon SharbinoFelicity Huffman, Allison Janney, William H. Macy, Niecy Nash, Amanda Peet, Sam Rockwell, Molly Shannon | Written and Directed by Clark Gregg

“There is no business like show business”—and for many that is a good thing. Back stabbing, deceit, and greed are the type of qualities one needs to succeed in the wonderful world of Hollywood. This type of climate may not produce great people, but it does give opportunities for some great drama. Clark Gregg’s latest film Trust Me  provides a brief inside look into that hostile world of the movie making process.

He plays Howard Holloway former child actor now talent agent that is on the verge of discovering a breakout star. With this potential success comes a barrage of influence both positive and negative—the issue being never knowing which one is which. Clearly this story comes from a person in the know, »

Clark Gregg talks 'Trust Me' and fame since 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

4 June 2014 8:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles - Clark Gregg loves "America's Funniest Home Videos." The "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" actor's new feature film "Trust Me" takes on a what defines success and what makes up "fame"; like so many people, the man who plays Agent Coulson loves to see a man fall which -- under certain circumstances -- makes a person famous. It's this "sphere," Gregg said, that piqued his curiosity, as he wrote, directed and led in the film. While any business will have you chasing a deal that's "gonna put you on the map, we have the added component of celebrity and fame" in Hollywood. "That seems to drive people a little bit more mad." What probaby made Gregg a little more crazy is his ambitious schedule. In the first film he directed, 2008's Chuck Palahniuk adaptation "Choke," he shot in 25 days and acted a little. For his self-described comedy-noir "Trust Me, »

Trust Me Is a Sharp-Toothed Look at the Modern Film Industry

3 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Classic Hollywood films like Grand Hotel and Dinner at Eight had huge casts filled with movie stars and character actors whose personas were so sharply drawn and instantly familiar that the moment the performers appeared onscreen, audiences knew what type of role to expect, and could rest assured the character would be well-portrayed. These films were glorious showcases for actresses now largely forgotten (Marie Dressler, Billie Burke) and still iconic (Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford).

Trust Me, a sometimes sharp-toothed look at the Machiavellian machinations of the modern film industry, calls those films to mind (as well as Altman's The Player) with its supporting cast of scene-stealing actresses (Molly Shannon, Allison Janney, Amanda Peet, Felicity Huffma »

Now available on VOD and opening in select theaters this weekend is Clark Gregg's latest directorial effort, Trust Me.  Gregg wrote, directed, and stars in the pic as a down-on-his-luck agent for child actors who discovers a 13-year-old acting prodigy (Saxon Sharbino) and must subsequently deal with her overprotective father (Paul Sparks), an untrustworthy producer (Felicity Huffman), and his nemesis (Sam Rockwell) in order to get himself back on top.  It’s been six years since Gregg’s directorial debut Choke and it's great to see him again behind the camera.  Trust Me also stars Amanda Peet, Allison Janney, William H.
