Kickstarter to the rescue again! Actor/director Zach Braff used the crowdfunding website to collect $2 million for a follow-up to his cult favorite “Garden State.”
The Kickstarter campaign for the project titled “Wish I Were Here” launched on Wednesday and received over 28,000 backers.
The “Scrubs” star tweeted on Friday, "Dear Fans, I cannot believe your unbelievable support for WIWH. I wish I could hug each and every one of you.”
“I get Anne Hathaway's ex-boyfriend. I get Dax Shepard, Ray Romano. Once Anne’s dad saw me at a premiere and gave me this look for a second like he was going to tackle me because I guess he wasn't the best ex-boyfriend.” (Follieri is currently serving time for fraud).
Braff added, “But I quickly let him know that it was just me, Dax Shepard.”
