Paul Rudd
April 6

“It’s insane, but it’s a great insane,” is how Paul Rudd sees his career in Hollywood.

This comic actor and performer has gone from second-tier comedy smart-ass to charming leading man in a scant few years.  He started his career playing in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers.  Things could only get better.

Paul said, “I don’t consider myself a comedian because I don’t really concern myself too much with jokes.”

We here at have to agree that there is a big difference between being funny and telling jokes.  We just wish we could do either.

Paul Rudd also starred in the bro-mantic comedy I Love You, Man where he got to bond with Jason Segel and hang out with both The Incredible Hulk and Rush!

In his last film Admission, he had to kiss Tina Fey.  So he has gone full circle, again working with a demonic monster.

Paul Rudd once said, “Theater is the most enriching and thrilling thing to do as an actor.”  Wait! What about being a rodeo clown or on Fear Factor?
