Who'd guess that you'd find parts of director Shawn Levy's (The Pink Panther, Big Fat Liar) life in movies from Night at the Museum to Cheaper by the Dozen to his newest, Date Night. Make a date to hear about it.
Levy talks about his early theatre career at Yale, his decision to become a director, lessons from Steve Martin and David Mamet, his attraction to stories about families, relationships and the messiness of life, and being "unabashedly populist." He also explores the special chemistry between Tina Fey and Steve Carell, whose unique comedic rhythm was achieved in the frame of a shot and not in the edit.
