Thanks to "Fargo" and "American Horror Story: Coven," FX had a huge Emmy nomination haul two weeks ago. And with "Fargo" leading the way, the network still has some of the best reviewed shows on TV. However, "Tyrant" and "The Strain" both drew mixed reviews, as did the comedies "Married" and "You Are The Worst." Fxx is still struggling to find an identity as it awaits a massive influx of "Simpsons" repeats. And just last week, FX announced that it would no longer be providing L+Sd ratings for reporters, preferring the fuller picture of Live+3 and Live+7 numbers. So let's just say that FX President John Landgraf will have plenty to talk about on Monday (July 21) morning at the Television Critics Association press tour... Click through and follow along... 9:19 a.m. We were delayed a bit by a couple embargoed released for announcements that are coming in the next five minutes. »

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. »

After discovering a 13-year-old acting prodigy (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, 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.
As a performer, Clark Gregg has garnered a number of fans over his career with roles in movies such as The Usual Suspects, State and Main, Spartan, and his recurring role in the Marvel films, as well as tv shows such as The West Wing, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, his 2008 directing debut Choke had many people intrigued to see when he would step behind the camera once again, which he is set to do in his next project. Titled Trust Me, Gregg takes on screenwriting and directing duties, while starring in the film alongside Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell, Amanda Peet, and Felicity Huffman. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

Killed off in "The Avengers," and brought back to life for "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.," Clark Gregg hasn't had much time to rest from his superhero duties, but he did manage enough time to knock out a sophomore directorial effort with "Trust Me." And after premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, it's now headed to theaters and the first trailer has arrived. Featuring a pretty solid ensemble including Sam Rockwell, Amanda Peet, Allison Janney, William H. Macy, Molly Shannon and Felicity Huffman, the Hollywood satire follows a down and out agent who discovers a 13 year-old who could be the next big thing. And as he navigates bringing her to the limelight, he realizes she may not be everything she appears to be. And for us, the movie doesn't quite come together, with our review noting that "the inevitable redemption for a complete asshole" ultimately "rings false." But you »

Continuing on with today’s unofficial “Trailer Thursday” theme, the first Trust Me trailer for Clark Gregg’s latest directorial effort has now landed online. 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 solid directorial debut Choke, and he appears to be delving into a bit lighter territory with this feature. The trailer highlights a swell mix of comedy and drama and showcases the stacked ensemble cast, and Gregg is charming as ever in the lead role. The world of child actor agents is ripe with material, and I’m looking forward to seeing what Gregg has put together with the full feature. »
