According to Judd Apatow, his illustrious film career is nothing more than a long-running personal vendetta against certain NBC execs. “Everything I’ve done, in a way, is revenge for the people who cancelled Freaks and Geeks," Apatow told a Beverly Hills audience last night. "It’s really demented.” Moral of the story: Don't mess with Judd Apatow. That guy really knows how to monetize a grudge.
