Getting your first feature film off the ground is no easy feat, but that task is made a bit easier when your friends include people like Rob Riggle, James Pumphrey, Lizzy Caplan, Abby Elliot, Joe LoTruglio, Rich Fulcher, Horatio Sanz, Dylan Obrien, Zach Woods, Matt Jones, Ed Helms and Kyle Gass. For actor and now director Matt Walsh, those are the stars he brought on board for his directorial debut, the improv comedy "High Road." The film follows a weed dealer split between a pregnant girlfriend, a gestating rock opera and his illegal job which pays the bills. Things go from bad to worse when a deal goes wrong and he’s forced to go on the run with a teenager he’s mentoring, thus allowing for the rich cast of characters to come into play. We recently spoke to director Matt Walsh and actress Lizzy Caplan about their work on the film and how they approached the film, from both in front of and behind the camera.

While he may not be a household name, you've definitely seen him before. Matt Walsh has certainly earned his comedy cred logging time in the "Upright Citizens Brigade," appearing in every Todd Phillips movie to date and racking up screen time in too many televisions shows and movies to list here. But undoubtedly, he's made plenty of connections and with a Rolodex full of funny people, he's called in a few favors for his directorial debut, the improvised comedy "High Road."
