Drake popped up on the set of Anchorman: The Legend Continues sporting an Afro for an afternoon in front of the cameras in NYC on Saturday. He joined the original cast — including Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner — who were also on hand for the day of filming. Drake isn't the only star making a cameo in the film since Tina Fey and Amy Poehler shot scenes with Sacha Baron Cohen in Atlanta earlier this month, and Liam Neeson, John C. Reilly, Kirsten Dunst, and Harrison Ford have also gotten in front of the cameras for the sequel. There's even more star power to come with Kristen Wiig and Nicole Kidman also signed on to make appearances.
After last night's White House Correspondents' Dinner, Vanity Fair hosted its annual postparty with Editor in Chief Graydon Carter greeting the many celebrity guests. Nicole Kidman mingled with other actors including Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, and Nashville leading ladies Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere. Despite being dubbed the "nerd prom," the many actresses in DC last night were dressed to the nines in their best gowns — check out who wore what on the White House Correspondents' Dinner red carpet.
The Vanity Fair bash, cohosted by Bloomberg, also brought out celebrity couples — Jason Sudeikis stuck close to fiancée Olivia Wilde, Sofía Vergara mingled with her own spouse-to-be, Nick Loeb, and Bradley Cooper brought his young model love, Suki Waterhouse. Jason made sure to say hi to his fellow SNL buddies from the past and present, including Fred Armisen and Amy Poehler. Sofía, meanwhile, hung out with pal Katy Perry.
I'll see just about any movie with Paul Rudd in it, and it's no surprise I jumped at the chance to see him and Paul Giamatti in Almost Christmas. The comedy was showing at the Tribeca Film Festival, and it was quite the surprise for me — mainly because Rudd wasn't my favorite part. Watch my review and find out what was!
Prince Avalanche is one of the indie gems that has been making the festival circuit (Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca), and now we've got a trailer for the film. Paul Rudd goes against type (and sports a mustache!) to play Alvin, an uptight road worker who is spending some time in the middle of nowhere with his girlfriend's little brother Lance (Emile Hirsch). Painting lines on the road doesn't prove to be as rewarding for Lance, though, whom Alvin deems to be mentally slow.
The trailer for Prince Avalanche seams to blend Alvin's dry humor perfectly with Lance's goofiness. It's especially refreshing to see Hirsch being the oddball and Rudd the straight man, since it feels like a departure for both actors. The film will be released Aug. 9, but watch the trailer when you read more
Paul Rudd turns 44 this week, but you'd never guess it by looking through pictures of his onscreen roles — the man doesn't seem to have aged a day since his breakout role in Clueless in 1992 (and he seems to be getting more attractive). When he's not looking positively adorable for a film role, he's going to goofy extremes for comedy's sake. Whether you prefer your Paul Rudd looking silly or sexy, this slideshow of his movies will satisfy you.
We've already gotten a tease of This Is the End, better known as the apocalyptic comedy starring just about every famous funny person, but the new red-band trailer provides a lot more footage, stars, and laughs. We've got Mindy Kaling setting her sights on Michael Cera, Rihanna getting hit on by Michael Cera, and Michael Cera getting impaled during said apocalypse. OK, maybe Michael Cera is the star of this particular trailer.
But wait! There's also Emma Watson hilariously wielding an axe, and a pretty entertaining fight between the film's real stars (Jonah Hill, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson) about who gets to eat a Milky Way bar. It's all very silly, but I'm now officially excited for this movie, which opens on June 14. The trailer is NSFW, but check it out after the read more
In Admission, Tina Fey and Paul Rudd play opposite each other in a collaboration that's loaded with potential, but their onscreen chemistry falls surprisingly flat. Fey plays Portia, a staunchly by-the-books Princeton admissions officer who gets a call from John (Rudd) to make a routine visit to his alternative school and talk to his students about college. He has an ulterior motive for luring her to the campus in the form of Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), a bright student he believes to be her birth son, but Portia has no idea until she's already immersed in their lives. The angle is far-fetched, but it could work if so many other components weren't jammed into the script.
Though it's billed as a romantic comedy, the romance between John and Portia feels forced and detracts from the story. Their combating dispositions serve as an obvious "opposites attract" romantic mechanism, but it's stale, especially given that Rudd and Fey's dynamic feels more like that of siblings. When they finally — spoiler alert — do get together, there's not much emotional payoff. To find out what else I think about Admission, just read more.
Tina Fey and Paul Rudd joined up to premiere their new flick, Admission, in NYC last night. Paul sported a new retro mustache that he had to grow for Anchorman 2, which is currently filming in Atlanta. Paul told The Hollywood Reporter that everyone is "a bit giddy" about the highly anticipated sequel, adding that the cast members — which include Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate — "all have such fond memories of the first one."
While Paul's facial hair raised a few eyebrows at the premiere, the real focus of the night was Taylor Swift's recent slam of Tina and Amy Poehler in an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. When asked about Tina and Amy's joke about her during the Golden Globes, Taylor recited a quote about there being "a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." Tina talked to Entertainment Tonight about Taylor's remarks during the premiere, saying that she "did not see that one coming." She added, "It was a joke. It was a lighthearted joke." Admission hits theaters on March 22.
Paul Rudd stars in the March 22 comedy Admission, which also features Tina Fey. The two star as an unlikely pair brought together through Tina's job as a Princeton admissions counselor. We chatted with Paul about getting to know Tina on set — they actually didn't really know each other before shooting — and his similarities to his character in the film, a man who travels around the world nonstop, compulsively doing good.
