Braff played Henry, a wealthy married man who "looks to find something real in the most unlikely of places".
In early 2011, Braff announced that he had written a play to be performed at the Second Stage Theatre in mid-2011.
He returned to his home state New Jersey to shoot the film, which was produced for .5 million.
The film made over million at the box office and was praised by critics, leading it to gain a cult following.
During his childhood, Braff was a friend of future Fugees member Lauryn Hill.
Braff has also done voiceovers for commercials, including a PUR water campaign, Wendy's between in 20, and in Cottonelle as the voice of the puppy.
The play, All New People, is set on Long Beach Island and centers on Charlie, a 35-year-old from Braff's home state New Jersey.
The play was directed by Peter Du Bois, who directed Braff in Trust the previous year.
In mid-2010, Braff took a lead role in Trust, at the Second Stage Theatre, a contemporary Off-Broadway theater company.
The play ran from July 23 to September 12, extending its scheduled run by one week.
Braff was nominated for three Golden Globes and an Emmy for his work on the show.
