Trust Me

Synopsis: A struggling agent for child actors and former child star himself, Howard Holloway spends years losing his most talented clients to his slick, arch-nemesis Aldo Shocklee. Until the day that Howard encounters the brilliant and unsigned 13 year-old Lydia who is on the brink of securing the lead in a new Twilight-style franchise. Howard tries desperately to close the deal of a lifetime and make his precocious young client a star while managing her drunk, volatile father, Aldo's relentless poaching attempts, and the hostile machinations of the project's casting director and mega producer, who both despise him. But the closer he gets to achieving the Hollywood score he has chased all his life, the more complications appear.

Did you ever think...

in some deep-down place

that you were really something else?

And if you could just strip away

that filthy, dead shell

you'd been walking around in,

you'd be reborn

as something new?

Something more beautiful

than anything you'd ever imagined?

Hey, buddy.

Well, of course you're nervous 'cause...

Sorry, Daryl... it's a really big deal.

Listen to me, no. Phillip, no.

Stop. You stop right there.

Hold on. Hold on one second.

I'm sorry. I got a client freaking out.

- These came for you.

- Oh, thanks. Thanks so much.

You look really, really...

- Hey, Ben. What's up, man?

- Hey.

- Hey, did you get some flowers?

- Oh, God, yes. Howard, thank you so much.

Please. I saw that you had

some tulips in your window once

and then they were on sale

at Trader Joe's.

Oh, you know, I...

I... I didn't get them

into water soon enough.

No, totally, totally, I'm sure...

it's weird, though, they looked still...

You know what it is? Plants hate me.

- They just...

- I doubt that.

They do. You should probably...

there's a bottom button.

- I can see your...

- Okay. Thank you for that.

- Your...

- Thanks. You got my back.

- Yeah.

- You got my back. All right.

Just say it with me.

"Congratulations, Phillip.

You got the part."

Well, it only works if you really do it.

That wasn't really doing it.

No, it wasn't. You know it wasn't.

I know when you really are doing it

and it's only when

you really do it that it works.

This is your time to shine.

Oh, God, you homicidal son of a...

No, not you. I'm here.

I'm parking. Yes, I am.

Picture yourself resting

on a cool, sandy beach.

I'm not lying. I'm here.

Big breath in and exhale out.

Good. Hold that door.

You think I don't know how you feel?

A third callback for "Boatniks," I'm 10.

My mom had to give me

an airplane bottle of schnapps

just to get my hands to stop shaking.

But this is different. You know why?

'Cause I was good, but you're special.

- I am?

- Hell, yes, you are, because...

Come on.

Hell, yes, you are.

And when you go in there

and do what we rehearsed,

they're going to see that.

I heard Lindsay Lohan's

little brother is doing the part.

What? Who told you that?

You know the twins who go

to my school, Rory and Cory?

- Yeah.

- Rory's manager told him.

No, they offered it to him,

but they couldn't make a deal.

So now one of the main roles

in this motion picture is wide open.

And I'm going to tell you something...

it's yours.

- It is?

- I can feel it.

- You can?

- Yes.

Phillip Trilby?

- Yes?

- You're up, honey.

You got this. My man.

Kick some ass, baby.

We really need this one, okay?

It's yours.

Hi, Phillip. I'm Meg Waldron.

Thanks for coming in.

- We all loved your work in "Cooties."

- So good, right?

- Thanks.

- Let's do this thing.

- This is empty.

- Oh, okay. Yeah.

Hey. Courtney, how you been?

Hey, Shawna. You look great.

Are you still working with that guy?

The... what's his name?

- What's going on in here?

- An audition.

Sorry. Just sounded so real.

- Who's your agent?

- Get out.

Okay. Sorry.

She is really good.

Are you saying he got the part?

Well, there's still a few things

to work out, but Nigel loved him.


So, Janice, what are you and Phillip

doing for the next few months?

Well, I mean, we've got school,

but, you know, screw it, right?

There's that one thing

over at Nickelodeon.

But, you know,

it's nothing we couldn't get out of,

you know, for the right situation.

Hey, pal, why don't you get

your game thing for a few minutes

- so Meg and I can talk business?
