[ on Ed Helms] It’s been said comedy is not action, it’s reaction, and Ed is the KIng of Reaction. Ed, when he wakes up and sees his tattoo on his face or his tooth is missing, or at the end of the movie – no one does reaction better than Ed. He’s the unsung hero of these movies.

The worst thing you can do as a comedy director is be on set and think of something ridiculous, or an actor comes up to you with something ridiculous, and you say ‘No, no that’s too much.’ Let’s not worry if that’s too much, let’s shoot it, and then decide if that’s too much when we see it.
