TRAILER: Bryan Greenberg & Alexis Bledel's "The Good Guy"

Alright so, I've kind of given up on Alexis Bledel's move from TV to film, but I'm glad that her journey onto the big screen allowed Bryan Greenberg to keep shining. This upcoming year is going to be a big one for the "One Tree Hill" graduate and former star of "October Road." I've missed Greenberg ever since his ABC series was cancelled. I even enjoyed watching him in that short-lived HBO pseudo-documentary "Unscripted," so it was a nice surprise to see him in last year's Bride Wars. But it was so painful to watch, I started praying that this wasn't the best his agent could do.

Thankfully, Mark Wahlberg gave him his own series on HBO called "How to Make It in America," which he'll star in with another talented actor, Victor Rasuk (Lords of Dogtown). Before it hits cable though, we'll see him in this indie dramedy The Good Guy. Once again, little Rory Gilmore is in the middle of a love triangle between a super sweet guy (Greenberg) and a clever douche (Scott Porter from "Friday Night Lights"). Even though he barely says a word in the trailer, you can really see the struggle he's having adapting to the city, accepting Wall Street's idea of professionalism, and not falling in love with his friend's girlfriend. This could be the decade that Greenberg actually turns some heads.

Release Date: February 19

  1. Bride Wars wasn't so hot, and Greenbergs role in that movie was slashed a bit when it hit the editing stage. Originally he was cast as #3 on the call sheet, but in the end, I don't think he got 3rd billing face time. Maybe they should have left his scenes in.

    Greenbergs new HBO show premieres the same weekend as his movie is released so its going to be a huge week for him... Check out all the info for his new HBO gig here...
