Exclusive: Clip From Indie Comedy 'Supporting Characters' Featuring 'Girls' Star Alex Karpovsky

Any creative process involving more than person -- forming a band, staging a play -- can often lead to relationships or severely test them, and just sharing productive space with another likeminded person is more than enough to set unexpected events in motion. And that simple premise forms the foundation of "Supporting Characters," a new indie comedy featuring "Girls" star Alex Karpovsky (aka Ray), Kevin Corrigan, Tarik Low, Sophia Takal ("V/H/S"), Arielle Kebbel ("90210") and Melonie Diaz ("Be Kind Rewind").

Any creative process involving more than person -- forming a band, staging a play -- can often lead to relationships or severely test them, and just sharing productive space with another likeminded person is more than enough to set unexpected events in motion. And that simple premise forms the foundation of "Supporting Characters," a new indie comedy featuring "Girls" star Alex Karpovsky (aka Ray), Kevin Corrigan, Tarik Low, Sophia Takal ("V/H/S"), Arielle Kebbel ("90210") and Melonie Diaz ("Be Kind Rewind").

From director Daniel Schechter (who co-wrote the script with Lowe, and is gearing up to helm the "Jackie Brown" prequel "Switch"), the film tells the story of two best friends Nick (Karpovsky) and Darryl (Lowe) who are brough in to edit and salvage a film when the director (Corrigan) goes AWOL. But that is just the beginning of their troubles as Nick begins falling for the film's young star (Kebbel) even though he's engaged to be married, while Darryl tries to keep his own relationship with his girlfriend from flying off the rails. But as you can see in this exclusive clip, it won't be easy, as temptation is not too far away.

"Supporting Characters" hits VOD on January 23rd and will open in limited release on January 25th. Check it out below.
