Very interesting! I had no idea Brooke had an interest in photography. And it sounds like she had a really interesting life in the 80s. Any of you New York Gabblers going to check it out? Sound off below.
Thanks to KGreysAnatomy for tweeting us the tip!
Brooke Smith will return to the big screen soon in her new film ‘A Little Help’. Brooke plays Kathy Helms, the sister of main character Laura. Check out the trailer below.
This trailer doesn’t show Brooke, I know, for a trailer that does, click HERE.
ABOUT A LITTLE HELP
Cast: Jenna Fischer, Chris O’Donnell, Rob Benedict, Daniel Yelsky, Kim Coates, Brooke Smith, Lesley Ann Warren, Ron Leibman, Zach Page, Arden Myrin, Aida Turturro, Jim Florentine, Dion DiMucci
Sara Kapner, Michelle Hurst, Dena Hysell, Joe Gressis, Glen Trotiner
Director: Michael J. Weithorn
Set in suburban Long Island in the post-9/11 summer of 2002, A LITTLE HELP examines a period of chaotic and rather bizarre upheaval in the life of dental hygienist Laura Pehlke (Jenna Fischer).
Up to now Laura has had the wind at her back in life by virtue of her good looks and effortless charisma. But lately things have begun to take some dark and difficult turns. Her marriage to real estate agent Bob Pehlke (Chris O’Donnell) has become tense and loveless – Laura even has suspicions that he’s cheating – and her relationship with her 12 year-old son Dennis (Daniel Yelsky) has become strained as well, his emerging adolescence having turned him typically sullen and hostile. Laura has not been dealing well with all this – she’s drinking and smoking too much; her self-esteem and confidence are in free fall.
When Bob dies suddenly – the result of a heart abnormality that goes undetected by an ER physician – Laura is a deer in the headlights. Her intrusive mother, Joan (Lesley Ann Warren) and sister, Kathy (Brooke Smith) step in to fill the vacuum – they pressure Laura to send Dennis to an exclusive private school, and force her to hire a ruthless lawyer, Mel Kaminsky (Kim Coates), to file a malpractice lawsuit against the doctor who misdiagnosed Bob.
As a result of these decisions, Laura soon finds herself in the middle of two huge, bizarre lies: at his new school, feeling like a loser and an outsider, Dennis impulsively tells the other kids that his father was a fireman who died in 9/11, then pleads with Laura not to tell people the truth because of the humiliation he would suffer. Laura reluctantly agrees, and soon finds herself a celebrity in the school community – the widow of a 9/11 hero.
The second lie involves the malpractice suit, which Laura knows is based on false pretenses – she knows that Bob didn’t tell the ER doctor the truth about what he was doing when he had previous heart symptoms, because doing so would have meant revealing the affair.
As Laura struggles to stay afloat in this vortex of deception, she finds that the one person with whom she can connect and communicate is, ironically, Kathy’s smart and sensitive husband, Paul (Rob Benedict). Paul had always had feelings for Laura, going back to when they were in high school together – though at the time Laura barely knew he was alive. Now, twenty years later, their respective circumstances begin to draw them powerfully toward each other – despite the obvious complications and dangers that this implies.
A LITTLE HELP is the story – funny, touching, sad, and real – of an ordinary person, engulfed by ordinary events, making an extraordinary emotional journey.
This seems like a great film, I will try to watch it. Hope it will be released in the UK! I never liked Erica Hahn, but it’s always nice to see former Grey’s actors in other projects. Will you watch this film? Share your thoughts below!

Hey Gabblers – Well, we haven’t seen much of Erica (Brooke Smith) since she walked off into that black hole in the Seattle Grace parking lot. Here’s some recent photos from a nice poster over on the Erica_Callie LiveJournal site. We appreciate them posting! Click on the pics to enlarge.
Family photos are awesome. Yep, thats Mr Smith with her and their girls.
She looks great, doesn’t she? What lovely girls she has. I bet she’s a great mom. Are you glad to see Brooke & family? Talk below.
Brooke Smith’s movie, Fair Game, has released movie stills, and below I’ve posted the one with her in it.
Fair Game Movie Synopsis: Fair Game is an action-thriller based on the autobiography of real-life undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts), whose career was destroyed and marriage strained to its limits when her covert identity was exposed by a politically motivated press leak.As a covert officer in the CIA’s Counter-Proliferation Division, Valerie leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Valerie’s husband, diplomat Joe Wilson (Sean Penn), is drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched uranium from Niger. But when the administration ignores his findings and uses the issue to support the call to war, Joe writes a New York Times editorial outlining his conclusions and ignites a firestorm of controversy.
