The Giant Mechanical Man Trailer: Jenna Fischer Falls for a Living Statue

What's the ennui-stricken modern girl to do? Hopefully, she can fall for someone as alienated as she feels, someone who really gets her, someone who's painted silver, and someone who's eight feet tall. Oh, did that get awfully specific? Well, look, Jenna Fischer has definitely got a type, at least in the trailer for The Giant Mechanical Man, where she finds herself drawn to one of those "living statue" street performers, played by Chris Messina on stilts and in silver face-paint. Better him than her other romantic option, a long-haired Topher Grace, spouting self-help. In real life, though, Fischer's type is quite different: She's married to the director of Mechanical Man, Lee Kirk.
