Todd Phillips is the writer and director of "The Hangover Part II," starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha, as well as the original film "The Hangover," which became the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time and won a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.

Todd Phillips recently directed and produced the hit comedy "Due Date," starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis.

by humor taken from everyday reality and the belief that the truth is often stranger than fiction. His first film, "Hated," portrayed the revolting antics of extreme punk rocker G.G. Allin and became an instant underground sensation. It was released in the summer of 1994 and went on to become the highest grossing student film of its time.

He followed that up in 1998 with "Frat House," a documentary that he produced and directed for HBO's popular "America Undercover" series. "Frat House" premiered at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival and won the Grand Jury Prize for documentary features. The unflinching exposé of life in fraternities created a public controversy that eventually caused the film to be shelved by HBO. Phillips still hopes to release it in the future.

After meeting producer Ivan Reitman at Sundance, Phillips made his crossover to features with 2000's "Road Trip," which established him as a new force in comedy. He simultaneously produced and directed "Bittersweet Motel," a documentary on musical cult phenomenon Phish.

In one way or another, Phillips' films explore the nature of male relationships, and in doing so he has worked with some of Hollywood's biggest comedic actors, writing and directing such films as "Old School" in 2003, "Starsky & Hutch" in 2004, and "School for Scoundrels" in 2006. Phillips was nominated for a 2006 Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on "Borat."
