Hollywood Director (sometimes just referred to as Director) was a game played briefly on the British, and more prominently American edition of Whose Line.

Ryan, Nyima, and Wayne with their faithful Director.

The game involved three or four performers, one of whom (Colin Mochrie) was the "highly strung Hollywood director". The others would then perform a given scene, which would be periodically interrupted by Colin to make suggestions about how better to perform it. These suggestions were sometimes on paper that he was given at the start of the game, though in later playings he made them up himself. The scenes were always wildly different from the way the scene had previously been. Typical ideas included "slow motion" and "filled with lust", although on one occasion the performers were told to perform the scene "Like Riverdance", or by using various celebrity or character impressions.

Colin was the focus of the game, particularly in his critiques of the other performers, always having to find new ways of telling them "You were crap". Additionally, there were always intimations that some of the cast were sleeping with the director.
