Zach Braff, always looking to branch out from his ‘Scrubs’ gig, will be directing Gavin DeGraw, singer of the ‘One Tree Hill’ theme, in his new video.
“I have been a fan of Gavin’s music for a while, and I think he is an amazing talent,” Braff explains. “I am excited to work with him.”
The video will begin shooting in Los Angeles this week.
Braff has starred as Dr. John Dorian on NBC’s “Scrubs” since the show debuted in 2001. However, Braff is probably best known for his work away from the small screen.
Braff won numerous praise and awards for writing, directing and starring in “Garden State.” Braff even won a Grammy for assembling the film’s indie rock-heavy soundtrack. Braff, who also will feature in this year’s animated “Chicken Little,” has directed several “Scrubs” episodes this season.
DeGraw’s “I Don’t Want To Be” became a hit largely on based on its “One Tree Hill” connection. The singer’s debut album, also titled “Chariot,” has gained much of its attention due to musical appearances on shows such as “Dead Like Me,” “What I Like About You” and “American Dreams.”
“Zach and I met at one of my shows and I was so flattered to hear he was a fan of my music,” DeGraw says. “He has a great vision for the “Chariot” video, and I’m really excited to work with him.”
