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 relationships—with their significant others and each other—reeling. 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.
