NICHOLAS STOLLER (Directed by) is a director, writer and producer whose intelligent, character-driven comedies have established him as one of the industry's most sought-after filmmakers. Stoller wrote and executive produced Muppets Most Wanted, the sequel to the popular 2011 film that he also wrote and executive produced, which was released by Walt Disney Pictures on March 21.

Stoller co-wrote The Five-Year Engagement with collaborator and star Jason Segel, which Universal Pictures released in April 2012. The film, which Stoller produced alongside Rodney Rothman and Apatow Productions, tells the story of the ups and downs of a man's five-year engagement with his fiancee (Emily Blunt).

Stoller previously teamed with Segel to write and executive produce James Bobin's The Muppets for Walt Disney Pictures. The critically acclaimed film, which starred Segel and Amy Adams, received an Academy Award for Best Original Song and won the Critics' Choice Movie Award in the same category. The Muppets grossed more than $165 million at the worldwide box office.

Stoller made his directorial debut with the comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which starred Segel, Mila Kunis, Jonah Hill, Kristen Bell, Bill Hader and Russell Brand. The film was produced by Apatow Productions and grossed more than $105 million worldwide. Stoller went on to make Get Him to the Greek, which he wrote, directed and produced. Hill and Brand reprised their Forgetting Sarah Marshall roles, as Hill's character struggles to escort rock star Aldous Snow (Brand) from London to Los Angeles for a comeback tour that begins at the Greek Theatre. Universal Pictures released the film in June 2010.

Additionally, Stoller wrote the smash hit Yes Man, which starred Jim Carrey as a man who turns his life around by saying "yes" to every opportunity, as well as a modern reimagining of "Gulliver's Travels," which starred Jack Black and Blunt.

Stoller's first job in the entertainment industry was comedy writing for Judd Apatow's celebrated FOX television series Undeclared. Segel and Stoller met during the show and hit it off upon discovering a shared love for painful, heart-wrenching comedy. Stoller made the transition to screenwriting doing rewrites and co-writing numerous projects with Apatow, including Carrey's vehicle Fun with Dick and Jane.

Stoller, a Harvard alumnus who wrote for The Harvard Lampoon, was born in London, England, and raised in Miami. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Francesca, and their daughters, Penelope and Frederica.
