Paul Rudd to Star in Adam Scott’s Fourth and Final ‘Greatest Event in Television History’
Adam Scott’s fourth Greatest Event in Television History special is set to air on Adult Swim next Thursday, January 23rd, and Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Paul Rudd will be co-starring with Scott in the new installment. The specials, which have been shot-for-shot remakes of cheesy opening credits sequences to ’80s shows preceded by a faux-documentary about said show, have featured past guests like Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, and Catherine O’Hara. As usual, Scott is keeping it a secret what show’s opening credits this next special will be recreating, but he released this photo of himself with Paul Rudd, grinning with white T-shirts, as a clue. Rudd previously appeared as the director of the first Greatest Event special in the fall of 2012.
Adam Scott told us in an interview last year that this fourth Greatest Event in Television History special will be the last, saying, “It’s a lot of work for such a short, stupid thing, so that’s why I think we’re gonna wrap it up here after the next two. Just because it’s sort of a lot of work and stress for something that is ultimately pointless. They’re really fun and they’re fun to make, but we’re ready to move on.”
