Posted by LiveFor on April 7, 2010

Dinner for Schmucks tells the story of Tim (Paul Rudd), a guy on the verge of having it all. The only thing standing between him and total career success is finding the perfect guest to bring to his boss’ annual Dinner for Extraordinary People, an event where the winner of the evening brings the most eccentric character as his guest. Enter Barry (Steve Carell), a guy with a passion for dressing mice up in tiny outfits to recreate great works of art.

From Jay Roach, director of “Meet the Parents” and “Meet the Fockers” comes an unforgettable feast about two unlikely friends and one very memorable dinner.

Zach Galifianakis and Paul Rudd team up for Will

Posted by LiveFor on January 13, 2010

Zach Galifianakis and Paul Rudd, who appear together in Paramount’s upcoming comedy “Dinner for Schmucks,” are teaming up again to star in the Paramount comedy Will according to THR.

Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton are directing, with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez producing.

The story follows an ordinary guy (Rudd) who lives in a world where people’s lives and destinies are being written by scribes in Heaven. The man wakes up one day to find that his heavenly writer (Galifianakis) has decided to no longer draft his life, and he must go about his day unscripted, ending up on a journey to fulfill his hidden potential.

Galifianakis was great in The Hangover and Paul Rudd is just brilliant (love him in Anchorman) so this should be one to watch out for.

Jason Segel sings at The Swell Season concert

Posted by LiveFor on November 21, 2009

Actor Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) performing an original song of his, with The Swell Season, at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA. Nov 18, 2009

Here’s how this happened… The band was at a restaurant in Los Angeles; drinking tea, when they were offered a bottle of wine by two celebrities. Paul Rudd and Jason Segel. Now The Swell Season has been enjoying watching their “Freaks & Geeks” DVDs while on tour, so this was a nice coincidence. They became good acquaintances, so The Swell Season asked Jason Segel to be a surprise guest and sing a song.

The Swell Season is a musical duo formed by Irish musician Glen Hansard and Czech singer and pianist Markéta Irglová who got together in the excellent 2007 film, Once.

The original film focused on a weekly gathering held by a Paris publisher, where his friends were challenged bring the most worthless guest they can find to dinner. The new version stars Steve Carell, who plays an “extraordinarily stupid man who possesses the ability to ruin the life of anyone who spends more than a few minutes in his company.”

Howl – First look at James Franco as Allen Ginsberg

Posted by LiveFor on March 21, 2009

Hollywood Elsewhere got hold of the photos below of James Franco on the set of the currently-shooting Allen Ginsberg biopic (Ginsberg is in the above photo). Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are co-directing and co-writing the drama, which is mainly be about the obscenity trial that followed the 1957 publication of Ginsberg’s Howl.
When I first heard about this I didn’t think Franco had the right look to play Ginsberg, but looks like I was wrong. Should be a very interesting film.
The film also stars David Strathairn, Alan Alda, Jeff Daniels, Mary-Louise Parker and Paul Rudd.

What if Judd Apatow directed Watchmen?

Posted by LiveFor on March 10, 2009

The Watchmen haven’t been acting like heroes lately. In fact, they’ve mostly been sitting around their Los Angeles apartment watching TV. They’re the closest of friends, but when nuclear Armageddon threatens, can they put joking aside, face adulthood, and save the world? Starring Paul Rudd as Dr. Manhattan, Seth Rogen as Nite Owl, Jonah Hill as Rorschach, and Michael Cera as the Comedian. Kristen Wiig appears in a nonspeaking role as Silk Spectre.

Slate.com have other What If…? scenarious for Watchmen including Woody Allen and Tyler Perry.

UPDATED: Vanity Fair Photo – Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen & Jason Segel feel the love

Posted by LiveFor on March 2, 2009

JONAH HILL, PAUL RUDD, SETH ROGEN, and JASON SEGEL, The Pretty Young ThingsAfter appearing in Knocked Up and/or The 40-Year-Old Virgin, this quartet can now be considered summa cum laude graduates of the Judd Apatow school of comedy. Unlike so many comedy stars of the last two decades, they—and the other funny people depicted on the following pages—seem at their best when they work not as soloists but as part of a tightly knit ensemble. Say good-bye to the laughter of alienation and hello to a brand of comedy that fosters a feeling of community. Rather than dominate a crowd, they conspire with the people in the audience. Their strength lies in their charm. Even Rogen. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz on Stage 28 at Paramount Pictures Studio Lot, Los Angeles.
