Best friends Nick (Alex Karpovsky, "Girls") and Darryl (co-writer Tarik Lowe) are a New York film editing duo hired to salvage a botched comedy from a manic director (Kevin Corrigan, Pineapple Express) gone AWOL. But what starts as a simple job quickly sends their relationshipswith their significant others and each otherreeling. Amidst trouble with his fiancée (Sophia Takal, V/H/S), Nick finds himself falling for the film's flirtatious ingénue (Arielle Kebbel, "90210"); Darryl, meanwhile, struggles to focus on his editing work in between fights with his tempestuous girlfriend (Melonie Diaz, Be Kind Rewind). With real humor and heart, Supporting Characters offers a sharp, knowing take on life and love in the big city.
