Watch: Chris Messina And Marin Ireland Steam Up The Trailer For ’28 Hotel Rooms’


For some time now, I’ve been debating about whether or not Chris Messina (Julie & Julia, The Trouble With Bliss, The Mindy Project) is hot. Well, I just watched the trailer for 28 Hotel Rooms and… I think Chris Messina is hot. Anyone concur? In the new movie he plays alongside Marin Ireland (who you might recognize from Mildred Pierce), and the chemistry between the two is intense, to say the least. The film got rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, and I’m thinking we can expect some pretty good things. Peep the trailer for more!

28 Hotel Rooms is on VOD now, and hits theatres November 16th.

    He’s in “The Newsroom” and I’ve had that same debate Shannon! After seeing this trailer, I can see that he is more on the hot side. Movie looks pretty good!

    • Shannon

      Sam, that’s right– The Newsroom! Yeah, I think we may have to accept that he’s hot, lol.

  • Ria

    HE IS SO HOT omg. Love the attitudes of his characters on both Newsroom and Mindy Project. Especially that last episode of Mindy Project when he was dancing… it was just wow.

    • Shannon

      Ria– ahhh!!! I HAVE to get caught up on Mindy. I saw the first episode and loved it, but then fell off. Thanks for reminding me :)

  • Ria

    Just saw the trailer. The passion is phenomenal.

    • Shannon

      Ria, I KNOW right?! Kinda wanna watch the movie right now, lol.

    • Shannon

      KiTX, lol! Yeah, I think Chris Messina is WINNING today.

    Ooohh, I’ve been crushing on him for awhile now. Even in Ira and Abby, where his character is so neurotic, I loved him.,lol I really don’t know what it is, but I just always want to jump his bones.

    Ever since he was in Six Feet Under, I thought he was super cute!! This looks so good, but so sad and honest.
