Most movie watchers now know Clark Gregg thanks to his role as Special Agent Coulson in Marvel films such as The Avengers, but the actor has a career that spans well beyond Marvel’s reach.
A few years ago he wrote and directed an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Choke, starring Sam Rockwell. Now Gregg and Rockwell are working together once more for Trust Me. This film, which Gregg also wrote and directed, traces the efforts of a child star-turned-agent (Gregg) who seeks to sign a teen talent before his nemesis (Rockwell) can poach her.
Below, we’ve got a long scene from the film, in which Gregg’s character makes his pitch to 13 year-old Lydia (Saxon Sharbino) and her suspicious father (Paul Sparks). As you’ll see, there’s likely some influence here from working in the tentpole/franchise side of Hollywood. In general, however, this appears to be something very much Gregg’s own.
