Paul Feig


Born in Mount Clemens, Michigan, Paul Feig is a director, producer, actor, and screenwriter known for TV comedies such as Freaks and Geeks, The Office, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, and Parks and Recreation. He is also known for his film work such as the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters, The Heat, and Bridesmaids. He told students, “I like doing action stuff. How can I make it physical and suspenseful so you’re scared and screaming at the same time? To get that kind of reaction out of the audience is a good time.”
