Chris O'Dowd is a familiar face to many after his megahit from 2011, Bridesmaids, and his UK series The IT Crowd. He had plenty of options in terms of films to make following Bridesmaids, and he chose to work with an unknown Australian filmmaker on what is now the Cannes hit The Sapphires. The Weinstein Company picked up rights to distribute the feel-good comedy starring Jessica Mauboy and Deborah Mailman, so audiences in the US will also be able to see Chris' latest when it comes out in August. We caught up with Chris and director Wayne Blair last week at the Cannes Film Festival, and both guys chatted about the process of making The Sapphires. Chris, who's marrying UK TV presenter Dawn Porter later this year, also dished about the crazy process of planning his very own wedding.
