Director Paul Feig Interview BRIDESMAIDS slice

With director Paul Feig’s (Freaks And GeeksBridesmaids opening May 13, I recently got to interview him for our partners at Omelete.  Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Matt Lucas, Chris O’Dowd, Melissa McCarthy and Jon Hamm, Bridesmaids is ridiculously funny and one of the best films I’ve seen this year.  In addition, there’s a scene in Bridesmaids that’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a movie theater.  You really want to see it this weekend. For some clips, click here.

During my interview with Feig we talked about his early TV work on The Facts of Life, deleted scenes, the test screening process, what will be on the DVD/Blu-ray, the Fight Club joke, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
