Spanning a billion dollars in worldwide box office gross, and quoted in conversations from offices to college dorm rooms on a daily basis, Apatow's movies and signature comedic voice have led to the betterment of entertainment for a generation, and will continue to do so with the July 31st release of "Funny People," the story of a famous comedian who has a near-death experience that stars Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Leslie Mann, along with Eric Bana, Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman.
