    Interview: Zach Braff Talks Micro-Budget Movies & The Challenges Of Playing An Unlikable Character

    After making a name for himself as the lead in the hit TV show "Scrubs" in 2001, Zach Braff stepped behind the camera in 2004 and unleashed "Garden State" on the world. You might have heard of it. This little indie that could earned over $35 million worldwide on a $2.5 million budget, had a best-sel...

    Tribeca Review: 'The High Cost Of Living' Can't Afford A Better Plot

    Just how out of touch are some filmmakers? There's a small trend of plots in which the main character commits a truly horrible crime of violent nature (which may even go as far as murder), usually by mistake, and their ultimate next move is to spy on the victim, befriend them, and pretend like nothing ever happened. This premise isn't just borderline offensive (a character tricking their victim for some weird personal catharsis?

    Zach Braff Joins Chloe Moretz & Jessica Biel In 'The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea'

    Planning To Adapt Stage Play 'All New People' Into A Feature FilmFor a moment there, the world seemed be his oyster for Zach Braff. The "Scrubs" star wrote and directed the mega indie hit "Garden State" which not only did gangbusters at the box office, but also spawned a best-selling soundtrack that suddenly had music supervisors everywhere looking at independent labels to find the music for their films. And then...Braff seemed to fade into the background a bit. He returned to his hit show and outside of "The Last Kiss" didn't do too much film work and found his sophomore directorial effort tough to get off the ground. But it looks like this ...
