"New Girl" star Jake Johnson is a degenerate gambler in the trailer for the new Netflix dramedy "Win it All," which also stars Keegan-Michael Key, Joe Lo Truglio, and Mexican actress Aislinn Derbez (daughter of Mexican comic superstar Eugenio Derbez).
Prolific indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies, Digging for Fire, Easy) directs from a script he co-wrote with Johnson. The film sees Johnson as Eddie Garrett, a bonafide loser who spends most of his nights drinking and gambling. After an unexpected encounter with a local thug (Jose Antonio Garcia), Eddie agrees to hold the thug's duffel bag while he serves a quick stint in prison. But when Eddie discovers the bag is filled with drug money, he can't help but use it to finance his free-wheeling lifestyle, which now includes finding new ways to impress his new beautiful girlfriend (Derbez).
"Win it All" is set to premiere this weekend at the SXSW Film Festival. It's also due to premiere next month on Netflix, beginning Friday, April 7th.
