"There are a lot of great directors on this show. The person I actually go to is my friend and co-creator, Alec Berg. And usually after a take, I go over to Alec and I'll go, 'What do you think?'" said Hader.

"And I get one of two responses. It's either, 'We should move on', or, 'We should go again'," he said while revealing that he often looks to Berg for feedback during filming.
