This is sort of obligatory posting at this point. On Saturday Night Live this week, Paul Rudd was hosting with One Direction serving as musical guest and since Paul is promoting Anchorman 2 at the moment, the rest of the cast – including Will Ferrell – joined him at one point and then One Direction joined them and they all sang ‘Afternoon Delight’ together.
It was a nice little stunt, sure, and I bet there were people who ate it up, but I just found it all… a little boring and not at all exciting like they hoped it’d be. It certainly didn’t make me want to see the movie any more than I did before (which, I’ll probably see it when it’s out to rent/download, because I did love the first one), but who knows. Maybe all the One Direction fans will be flocking to the theatres now.

I’m not even gonna lie – Anchorman was my shit for the longest time. That part when Ron Burgundy is doing the flute performance and he sucks up the liquor and lights the end on fire? HILARIOUS! That movie has quotes for days and I was stupid enough to use them for a long ass time. To be perfectly frank, I still throw a “Ham and eggs comin’ atcha, get your griddles out!” every once in a while, and I’m not ashamed.
In any case, the sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, has been a long time coming but it’s just about here. The trailer’s here, that’s for sure. Pretty much everyone from the first film is back, including Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and Christina Applegate. There are a shit ton of other big names this time around, as well, including Nicole Kidman, Liam Neeson, Amy Poehler, Meagan Good, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kanye West, Drake, Harrison Ford, Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, Jim Carrey and James Marsden. That’s right, Kanye and Drake. LOL!
What do you think? Will you see Anchorman 2? Did you like the first? The release date is set for December 20.

When I heard that it was the “sequel” to Knocked Up, I was like, “Ugh, that movie sucked shit through a straw, and they’re touting this as its ‘sequel’ like that’s supposed to turn people the f-ck on?” but then I stepped away and—objectively!—watched the trailer, and guys, it doesn’t look awful. It’s got Paul Rudd (who I love) and Jason Segel (who I also love, when he’s not looking like this), and the idea is cute and fun and I laughed out loud when I saw Paul Rudd examining his anus, because come on. Who hasn’t done that at some point in their lives? Please.

If I’m not mistaken—AND I SELDOM AM—Jennifer Aniston and boyfriend Justin Theroux first met on the set of Wanderlust. And when I see them together with the, uh, the goat (pictured), I can finally understand how those sparks first flew.
I am pretty excited about Wanderlust. Maybe the trailer itself is a little lackluster, but the movie is directed by David Wain, through whose veins run pure absurdist gold. (Sorry, I can damn near recite Wet Hot American Summer from heart.) Plus, it stars Paul Rudd! Hmmmm. Now that I think of it, Jen and Paul also costarred in The Object of My Affection—not that anybody remembers the mid-90s anymore. Ah, well.
Anyway, check out the trailer. I spy Ken Marino and Kerri Kenney (both “The State” alumni), and shapeshifting Justin Theroux is nigh unrecognizable as a member of a commune:

Because seriously, SERIOUSLY: I would. Ever since Clueless (which debuted in 1995 – Courtney Stodden was a year old), Paul Rudd has been one of the hottest things going for me. Remember him in Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers? What’s that? You stopped watching the Halloween movies back in ’78? Well that’s just too bad for you. You’re missing out, you silly ass. He was so hot in that movie, too.
He’s just the regular every man:
“Oh you just added another hour to this interview! When we were filming Knocked Up, we kept a running list of annoying things about me. We used some of it in the movie and it was great. It’s almost like therapy, because I’d hear my wife yell from the other room, “Here’s one you can tell Judd [Apatow]: Pick up your f—ing coffee cup!” The list kept going after the movie came out, by the way. But my next project is a spin-off of Knocked up, Focusing mostly on my character so hat material has really come in handy.
He’s a good, good husband:
“When I take the time to acknowledge who my wife is and what she does. Whether it’s saying, ‘Wow, you look really pretty” when she isn’t expecting it, or just, “My God, its so amazing what you do for our children.” I think she appreciates that stuff even more than the bigger gestures, like picking a really thought-out birthday gift or arranging a great party for her on the sly.
On being grouped with “hot” peers:
“The first thing it makes me think is that James Franco, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, and Jon Hamm weren’t available. And then once that goes away, what’s left is nothing but sheer appreciation.”
See? This is one of those times that, really, only a song will do my feelings any justice, so here goes:

Ugh. Paul Rudd, right? He was hot when he was creeping on his stepsister back in ’95, and he’s hot today. In addition to his outlandishly good looks, he’s also a pretty spectacular dude. He’s been in some of my favorite movies, he’s rocked some of my favorite hobo beards, and he deserves some recognition for all of it on this, his 42nd birthday.
Check out the gallery for pictures of Paul from a couple of weeks ago to 1993 and tell me that this man’s beauty is not a force to be reckoned with. If that challenge isn’t enough, see if you can spot three of my favorite celebrity dudes, Judd Apatow, Jason Segel, and Christopher Meloni. I apologize in advance for the certain overload of awesome that you’ll experience with this gallery, but also, you’re welcome.
