IndieSeen Favorite: Paul Rudd

I like this guy. The first time I saw Paul Rudd was in Clueless. He played Josh, the older step-brother to Cher that always had a crush on her and the two fall for each other. It seems kinda a little incestuous that the two start getting a little romantical towards one another, but he wasn’t really her brother by blood…so who cares if you think your step-brother is hot??

Paul Rudd in some ways reminds me of Tom Hanks. His style is similar to that of Hanks in which each actor can be slapstick funny and Oscar-worthy dramatic. This Kansas-bred boy did his undergraduate studies at the University Of Kansas and then went on to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts where he was classmates with Matthew Lillard.

What I think is cool about Rudd is he likes to switch it up a little. Even though he is known for working in feature films, he also has starred in a number of sketch comedy TV shows. He has been on shows like Strangers With Candy, Robot Chicken, and Reno 911!

He’s been in a number of good indies too. Some of my personal favorites are: The Shape Of Things, P.S., 200 Cigarettes, and The OH in Ohio. He’s reunited with 40 Year Old Virgin director Judd Apatow in Knocked Up scheduled to come out this year. The film stars Izzie…I mean Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen—another 40 Year Old Virgin alumni.

Paul Rudd currently lives in Manhattan and can be spotted in the area when he’s not shooting in L.A.
