Zach Braff As An Edgier Fletch?

Zach Braff is quietly taking over the world. First, by appearing in a Woody Allen movie (sure it was "Manhattan Murder Mystery," but it's still every comic's dream -- or at elast was), then he plays gay in "The Broken Hearts Club" to get the smart people on his side. That's all capped by the clever but sentimental sitcom "Scrubs." As if that weren't enough, Braff did the voice in the animated hit "Chicken Little," directed and starred in the critically acclaimed "Garden State," won a Grammy for his soundtrack while heping give a boost to indie faves The Shins, influenced Paul Simon, starred in another movie "The Last Kiss" about to come out and even has a cool website. Up next? A (slightly) edgier "Fletch." Can nothing stop this man?

Gotta be Sal asking this. I just fast-forwarded through the DVD till I found him -- Braff plays Woody and Diane's son -- he's in town briefly for his birthday and we see them after they have dined at 21 to celebrate and they bump into Angelica Houston. V minor role; I don't know if he pops in again. And Joy Behar of The View is in it too! Maybe some day I'LL be in a Woody Allen movie.
