“Bridesmaids said his and co-star Kristen Wig did  a lot of improve in his audition

“I did improve with Kristen for an hour and it was great.

O’Dowd revealed that at first he wasn’t sure if he had got the job. When director Judd Apatow brought him into his office he wasn’t sure if he had landed the role.

“I wasn’t sure if I had got the job or not because he (Judd Apatow) never really made it very clear.

The Irish actor who starred in the hit UK comedy show “The IT Crowd’ said he didn’t feel much pressure to be the funny man.

“I felt I did not need to be that funny, because Kristen is so funny and the movie is not about what I am doing, it’s about this incredible bunch of women,” he said.
