 Paul Rudd Biography

Paul Rudd received his first role with great exposureas an aspiring filmmaker married to Reed Halsey (Ashley Judd, later Noelle Parker) on "Sisters." He began appearing more frequently on television, in series including the CBS miniseries "The Fire Next Time," the drama "Moment of Truth: Stalking Back," Joe Dante's "Runaway Daughters" and on a segment of Showtime's "Rebel Highway."

Rudd's breakthrough role was with Amy Heckerling's hit comedy, "Clueless," playing Alicia Silverstone's college-aged, know-it-all stepbrother/would-be love interest. The following year, he played a jazzed-up Paris, renamed Dave Paris, in Baz Luhrmann's updated, rock 'n' roll version of "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet."

Rudd continued turning heads when he played a gay man involved with an unwed mother (Jennifer Aniston) in Nicholas Hytner's "The Object of My Affection." In 2000, Rudd starred opposite Andie MacDowell in "Reaching Normal," and then in 2001 he traded on his preppy looks to embody F. Scott Fitzgerald narrator Nick Carraway in the made-for-cable adaptation of "The Great Gatsby." A turn toward the ridiculous with the cult comedy "Wet Hot American Summer" set the stage for one of Rudd's more memorable and visible roles, when he landed the plumb part of Mike Hannigan, Phoebe Buffay's straight-laced and level-headed beau, on the hit sitcom "Friends."

Mixing things up for a bit, Rudd took a role opposite Will Ferrell in the comedy, "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy," the most effective demonstration of his comedic skills to date. Rudd played a misogynist expose reporter in 1970s-era San Diego, who bolsters news anchor Burgandy's attempts to freeze out their station's first female on-air reporter (Christina Applegate). Rudd's increasingly deft comic abilities caught the right attention, landing him in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." Written and directed by Apatow and starring Steve Carell, the movie costarred Rudd as one of the supportive, if sometimes misguided, co-workers trying to help their oddball friend (Carell) lose his virginity. Jumping back on stage, Rudd appeared on Broadway with first timer Julia Roberts in her much publicized dramatic debut, "Three Days of Rain."

After starring as a clam digger with artistic aspirations in the low-budget "Diggers," Rudd played Ethan the Drug Lord in "Reno 911: Miami," the big screen treatment of Comedy Central's hit about a bumbling squad of Reno cops. Rudd had his chance to make himself a household name with "Knocked Up," an unrelenting comedy from Rudd's friend and director Apatow, about an up-and-coming entertainment journalist whose one-night stand with a disheveled slacker results in an unwanted pregnancy.

Rudd then found himself in demand as a comedian, hosting an episode of "Saturday Night Live." He filmed a funny cameo as Jason Segel's surfing instructor in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," while co-writing and starring in "Role Models." Rudd reunited with Segel for another comedy hit in the same vein, "I Love You, Man," and followed by voicing the arrogant fiancé of Reese Witherspoon's 50-foot-woman in the animated blockbuster "Monsters vs. Aliens."

Rudd starred opposite Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis in "Dinner For Schmucks" in 2010, a remake of the French black comedy "The Dinner Game." Rudd starred in and served as producer of his next successful project, "Wanderlust," where he played an out-of-work New Yorker who moves to a hippie commune in Georgia with his documentarian wife, where hijinks of course ensue. Most recently, Rudd has starred in Marvel's new film, "Ant-Man." He also starred as Andy in the Netflix original comedy series, "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp."
