Ruddy or Not: How Paul Rudd's Roles Stack Up

16 July 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

With his starring role in the Marvel superhero blockbuster Ant-Man, Paul Rudd seems set to embark on a new phase in his career: action hero. But there's a scene late in the movie when, caught kissing another character, his ex-con-turned-insect-controlling-good-guy Scott Lang starts to faux-blame the deed on his partner before gracefully skirting away. It's a classic Rudd moment, and a reminder of what he brings to the table even when he's playing a comic-book character.

What is that exactly, you ask? In general, his characters tend to be earnest and romantic, »

Tribeca Review: Neil Labute’s ‘Dirty Weekend’ Starring Matthew Broderick And Alice Eve

20 April 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Scandinavians have Lars Von Trier, and Americans may boast Harmony Korine as our enfante terrible, but writer/director Neil Labute is still unquestionably America’s premier big screen provocateur. Over the years, he’s poked, prodded and challenged audiences with many confrontational and discomfiting topics both in film and on the stage, tackling misogyny and sexism (“In The Company Of Men”), obesity/female body issues (the stage play “Fat Pig”), the duplicity of the art world and calculating females (“The Shape Of Things”), post 9/11 fallout (“The Mercy Seat”) and the repercussions of an interracial love triangle ("This Is How It Goes," "Lakeview Terrace”). Labute functions like a portrait artist of nasty, vicious human behavior, deceitful psychologies and devious assholes —his worldview is often deeply cynical, presenting the unpleasant aspects of human nature. Nearly once a year, he turns out a new work that’s sharp, funny, observational and indeed. »

First trailer for Dirty Weekend starring Alice Eve and Matthew Broderick

15 April 2015 1:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer for director Neil Labute’s (The Shape of Things) new film Dirty Weekend has been released ahead of its Tribeca Film Festival debut, and you can view it below…

Labute’s Dirty Weekend stars Matthew Broderick (The Producers) and Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) and is set in Albuquerque, where “work colleagues Les and Natalie discover more about each other than they ever thought possible. Anxious and irritable, Les is drawn back into the city by past experiences he can’t forget (even if he doesn’t really remember the particulars of his previous drunken adventure). Natalie, refusing to leave his side, follows along as her own secrets are slowly revealed, leaving her feeling both vulnerable and unbound.”

The film is set to debut at Tribeca in the Feature Narrative line-up this Sunday, although its official release date in the Us (or indeed UK) is still to be confirmed. »

Watch: Paul Rudd Jumps Into Action In New Trailer For Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

13 April 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This summer, an unlikely actor is becoming a franchise superhero: Paul Rudd. Probably best known for his comedic roles in films like "The 40 Year-Old Virgin," "Role Models," "Anchorman," and more, the actor has show some dramatic chops before (Neil Labute's underrated "The Shape Of Things," for example). But Marvel's "Ant-Man" will likely provide a chance for Rudd to get both silly and serious, in a movie that's certainly the biggest he's ever made in his career. Some aspects of the production were new to the actor, others not so much. “It was a new experience as far as the motion-capture-suit-ness of it,” Rudd said to EW. “But none of it feels that different. Every part, I’m pretending to be somebody I’m not. It’s all just a big lie!” However, the big questions left to be answered is if Marvel made a mistake splitting from the film's original director, »
