"I just had my first time directing yesterday. I’m working with my sister directing episodes for a pilot with Vin Diesel called The Ropes, about the lives of bouncers. We’re so psyched. I had the most amazing first day of shooting. I was on the set for 12 hours, went to bed at two am, was up again at 7.30, my energy and brain completely alert. I can’t wait to get back on set. After one day on set, I’m feeling the itch. I’m also directing a video short for Glamour magazine. And I’m in talks to possibly direct a film in Montreal, but I don’t want to say too much about that until it actually happens."

I'll get to Jumping The Broom in a second, but first, because of the 4 day Memorial Day holiday weekend, the final results will no doubt be slightly higher by Tuesday. But, no question that The Hangover Part II was far and away the big winner this weekend.
