Actor Mike Myer's debut film is a documentary called SUPERMENSCH: THE LEGEND OF SHEP GORDON, which focuses on Hollywood super-manager Shep Gordon, who has lent his managing skills to a bevy of music stars throughout his career and befriended some of Hollywood's most elite, who seem to regard him as one of the nicest and most trustworthy people on the planet. The film premiered at TIFF 2013 and garnered solid reviews. The trailer is certainly compelling, especially if you're someone who enjoys tales of the inner workings of show business.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

In 1991, music manager Shep Gordon held Mike Myers over a barrel a few weeks before shooting "Wayne's World" regarding an Alice Cooper song Myers wanted to use in the film. They have been close friends ever since. 22 years later, the story of Gordon's legendary life in the uber-fast lane is now told in Myers' directorial debut. And this time it's Myers who has Gordon over a barrel. Capitalist, protector, hedonist, pioneer, showman, shaman... SUPERMENSCH. Shep Gordon is the consummate Hollywood insider. Though he isn't a household name, Gordon has become a beacon in the industry, beloved by the countless stars he has encountered throughout his storied career. Gordon's unlikely story will be told by those who know him best, his pals, including Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Anne Murray, Willie Nelson, Emeril Lagasse and more.

I'm always fascinated by the things you never see and only hear about in Hollywood and showbusiness in general. It's often portrayed as a beautiful collection of creative collaboration, but we all know there's more to it than that. For someone as ingrained in the system and dealing with such a massive amount of celebrities, I have no doubt that just sitting down with Shep Gordon for half an hour would yield enough interesting tales to fit in a book, let alone an entire documentary. Definitely one to add to the playlist.

SUPERMENSCH: THE LEGEND OF SHEP GORDON hits theaters on June 6, 2014.

I've read stories about this guy...

I am so happy he is finally getting recognition for who he is and what he does. This guy is truly hands down the nicest person in all media. He puts everyone ahead of himself and always remember to not forget to get the money. That is his favorite saying. He has worked with the best, and there are a ton of people who got their lives back on track right in his kitchen. He helps people get sober, he helps people when they are down and out. Sure by people, I mean celebrities, but they were normal

Sure by people, I mean celebrities, but they were normal once, until Shep found them. He is the saint of Hollywood.
