'SNL' Review: Seth Rogen Half-Baked

While watching Seth Rogen host SNL for the third time last weekend, I was reminded of two other three-peat hosts from earlier this season: Paul Rudd in December and Jonah Hill in January. Rudd's episode felt like extended promo for Anchorman 2, with the host failing to capture that lightning in the bottle with cast members that made his previous stints so memorable. Hill, however, seemed to enjoy himself every bit as much as he did his first two appearances.

Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Jonah Hill are, of course, hugely successful alumni from Team Judd Apatow, but their careers have taken diverging trajectories. Rogen and Rudd have [...]

Watch Adam Scott's Final 'Greatest Event in Television History'

Last night, Adult Swim aired the fourth and final installment of Adam Scott's The Greatest Event in Television History, and this time the shot-for-shot opening sequence remake was based off the 80s sitcom Bosom Buddies. Among the guest stars to appear this time are Paul Rudd, Gillian Jacobs, Aidy Bryant, Mo Collins, June Diane Raphael, Billy Joel, and original Bosom Buddies star Tom Hanks. According to a rep at Adult Swim, while this was announced as the last Greatest Event, "You never know! There aren't any more planned for production in the near future, but the door is open for them to come back." Click through to watch the [...]

Carell, Ferrell, Koechner, and Rudd Bring Chaos to 'The Daily Show'

The Anchorman 2 cast are all in the midst of their final promotional push this week, but last night on The Daily Show, guests Will Ferrell, David Koechner, Paul Rudd, and former Daily Show correspondent Steve Carell decided to approach their appearance a little differently, starting first with some knowing glances between Stewart and Carell then slowly devolving to a very slapsticky destruction of the Daily Show green room decor.

Here's a Peek at Last Night's 'Anchorman 2' Premiere

In case you have a little more room in your brain for Anchorman 2 promotion, the US premiere happened last night at New York's Beacon Theatre, complete with a fancy red carpet lineup of the film's stars and a handful of other entertainment reporter bait. Here's a recap of the night from Splitsider's post near the end of the press line, complete with photos and a few quotes from the attendees.

'SNL' Review: Paul Rudd's 'Anchorman' Ad

The most beloved SNL hosts over the years can make sketch comedy magic with anyone. Justin Timberlake, for example, seemed to hit it off so well with Jimmy Fallon in the early 2000s, but even after Fallon left the show, Timberlake still hosted stellar episodes with whichever lineup of actors and writers happened to be working those seasons. Alec Baldwin is another example — despite being famous for his Scoutmaster and Schweddy Balls bits, Baldwin has never been dependent on any particular writer or cast member to make him look good. Baldwin understands that it's about making everyone else look good, and that's why he's hosted the show 16 [...]

Watch a Sexy New 'Billy on the Street' Game with Paul Rudd

If you'd like to watch Paul Rudd get sexually objectified on the streets of New York, look no further than this sneak peek of tomorrow's new episode of Billy on the Street episode called "Would You Have Sex with Paul Rudd?" It turns out a lot of people would have sex with Rudd whether or not a dollar prize is involved, though that isn't exactly surprising.

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 [...]

Paul Rudd to Star in Marvel's 'Ant-Man' for Director Edgar Wright

Paul Rudd is Marvel's next big-screen superhero. According to Variety, Rudd is now in early negotiations to star in the upcoming Ant-Man movie directed by Edgar Wright and co-written by Joe Cornish. According to Wright, Ant-Man will be a little different than the average superhero origin tale, and the casting of Rudd definitely hints to a more comedic approach to a Marvel film. He told Box Office Magazine back in 2010:

What we wrote for the first draft, and what Marvel really liked, is that it's funny, but it's a genre film. It's about the level of comedy that Iron Man has. The idea is to make [...]

Rudd completely steals the show around the 4:20 mark with his amazing performance of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now," which includes plenty of the sassy dancing Rudd is known for.
