Playing it Cool trailer
“Hey, if that other guy can do it…”

When Chris Evans talks about wanting to leave acting behind, maybe he’s talking about movies like Playing it Cool, once called A Many Splintered Thing. The romcom follows a screenwriter who just wants to write action, but is talked into writing a romcom… and somewhere along the way, this self-professed love-hater falls for a charming young woman (Michelle Monaghan). In truth, this doesn’t look bad, just terribly lacking in character. And that’s despite a great supporting cast, which includes Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Philip Baker Hall, Giovanni Ribisi and Martin Starr.

The star-studded ensemble for that film includes Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Giovanni Ribisi, Audrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, and Luke Wilson, for starters.
