2011 is the year of director Paul Feig (Freaks & Geeks, Knocked Up, Nurse Jackie) . He directed the 'Farewell to Steve Carrell' episode of The Office, and his new film is the comedy, Bridesmaids, with Kristen Wiig.
Feig talks about working with a great ensemble cast, led by SNL's Wiig (who co-wrote the film); defines "charisma" and what makes an actor right for the job; compares weddings to films. He also explains how Judd Apatow got him out of "movie jail."
