Paul Feig is a self-described “Peanuts” expert, which is why he was the perfect producer to shepherd “The Peanuts Movie” for 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios. Since creating the beloved short-lived series “Freaks and Geeks,” Feig has established himself as one of Hollywood’s most trusted voices in comedy. He followed up his directorial debut “Unaccompanied Minors” with the global hit “Bridesmaids” and his career has taken off from there, with the Melissa McCarthy vehicles “The Heat” and “Spy” grossing $229 million and $235 million worldwide, respectively. Feig stepped away from the editing room of “Ghostbusters” to talk to. »

During his career, George Cukor was often referred to as a “women’s director” for his facility with foregrounded female performers: Katharine Hepburn in no less than 10 collaborations, Jean Simmons in The Actress, the women in The Women. By that logic, Paul Feig is our Cukor: beginning with Bridesmaids (since we’ve confined I Am David and Unaccompanied Minors to the rubble of collective amnesia), he’s established himself as a specialist in female-led comedy, following up with The Heat and now Spy. In interviews prior to Bridesmaids‘ release, he mused that the film better not bomb or he’d have messed it up for women in comedy for decades. If none […] »

Louie, Season 5, Episode 6: “Sleepover”
Directed by Louis C.K.
Airs Thursdays at 10:30pm Et on FX
A few episodes back, Louie had a contentious conversation with the proprietor of a kitchenware store, who insisted that if the young seemed to be outpacing him, it was a sure sign that things were going well, and that the future would be in capable hands – hands like those of his daughters, Lilly and Jane. In the opening of “Sleepover,” Louie takes Lilly to Broadway to see a 60s-era play (actually conceived for Louie) with a star-studded cast (John Lithgow, Michael Cera, Glenn Close, and returning Louie guest Matthew Broderick) , and is distressed to see her using her phone during the performance. As it turns out, she was actually using her phone to read up on the play and enrich her own understanding of the material, »

Paul Feig is Hollywood’s most popular ladies’ man.
That’s not to suggest he’s a lothario or creepy man-on-the-make. It’s just that in his job as a top movie director, he arguably has done more in recent years than anyone else in the business to enable actresses to play the kinds of delicious characters that traditionally had been the domain of their male counterparts. There’s an encouraging shift under way at the box office with such female-driven hits as “Fifty Shades of Grey,” “Cinderella,” “Insurgent” and “Maleficent” burning up the bigscreen. And Feig, who has demonstrated a fondness for funny women, has played a central role part in helping to create and maintain that momentum, with a resume of blockbuster comedies.
