He may not be a familiar name like Mark Mothersbaugh or Jon Brion, but Michael Andrews is quickly rising into a similar status. He has composed for a number of notable films including “Donnie Darko,” Miranda July's “Me and You and Everyone We Know,” "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story," “Cyrus,” “Funny People” and most recently, "Bridesmaids." He most certainly got to know both Judd Apatow and Paul Feig back in the day when he lent his skills to both “Undeclared” and “Freaks and Geeks,” and he's set to reteam with the Apatow fold on yet another project.

Soundtrack Arrives Early On May 10, Score By Michael AndrewsHighly anticipated to some of us (this writer) and old awesome news to the Playlist folks that were at SXSW last month, Paul Feig's "Bridesmaids" starring Kristen Wiig looks and sounds awesome. Our SXSW reviewer called it "hilarious and heartfelt," and a lot of internal chatter has been saying it's the best Judd Apatow-produced film since "Knocked Up" in its balance of rude comedy, heart and even (yes), moments of social realism. No really, in our 7 Best Films of SXSW recap we wrote, "the film has a heart and soul, and even touches upon some Mike Leigh-like class issues in its surprisingly weighty story."

The name might not be familiar, but you've definitely heard his work. Michael Andrews has been tapped to compose the score for the upcoming Judd Apatow-produced, Paul Feig-directed comedy, "Bridesmaids." While he may not be as instantly recognized as Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer or James Newton Howard (yet) Andrews has composed for a number of notable films including "Donnie Darko," "Me And You And Everyone We Know," "Cyrus," and "Funny People." He most certainly got to know both Apatow and Feig back-in-the-day when he lent his skills to both "Undeclared" and "Freaks & Geeks."
