Double duty for Paul Feig


“Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig, whose latest film is the Boston-based comedy “The Heat” starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock, has been in town for much of the week. He’s here to promote the movie, which comes out next month, but we’re told he visited Cambridge to film an episode of a new Esquire Network show called “The Getaway” with his actress pal Jessica Chaffin. The two were spotted filming at Puritan & Company in Inman Square. Chaffin plays quite the townie in “The Heat” and will soon appear in the new Boston-based sitcom “The McCarthys” with another local “Heat” star, Joey McIntyre.
