The Best Man For the Job
Yes, Paul Rudd was fantastic in Role Models but his days as a leading man have just begun.
Soon he and Jason Segel will star in I Love You, Man, a film that Rudd refers to as a "bromantic comedy". The film will be written and directed by John Hamburg (Along Came Polly, Meet the Parents), and produced by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Road Trip). Since Hamburg wrote a couple of episodes of the cancelled TV show, Undeclared, it's nice to see him and Jason Segel collaborating again.
Paul Rudd plays a guy who is getting married and realizes one crucial thing: he has no friends. Because he has mostly been a friend to girls in his life, this creates a challenge when trying to find a "best man". The film centers on him searching for a best man, and ultimately meeting Sidney (Jason Segel), who becomes not only his best man, but his best friend.
The film also stars Jon Favreau, Jamie Pressly, Carla Gallo, Rashida Jones, Jo Lo Truglio, Thomas Lennon, and Andy Samberg.
Basically, this movie is gonna rock. When a trailer hits the internet, I'll post it.
I Love You, Man hits theaters January 16th.
