Paul Rudd Received Walk of Fame Star Today

Paul_Rudd_2_SDCC_2014Paul Rudd, best known for his roles in a string of Judd Apatow films, will receive the 2,554th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today.

The ceremony comes 16 days before the release of the Marvel film “Ant- Man” in which he plays the title role and for which he co-wrote the screenplay.

Rudd’s “Ant-Man” co-star, Michael Douglas, and Adam Scott, who starred in the 2009-2010 Starz comedy “Party Down” that Rudd co-created, will join Rudd in speaking at the 11:30 a.m. ceremony next to the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.

Born April 6, 1969, in Passaic, New Jersey, Rudd went to high school in Kansas and attended the University of Kansas. He made his acting debut in 1992 on the NBC drama “Sisters.” His first high-profile role was as Josh, the ex- stepbrother of Alicia Silverstone’s character in the 1995 film comedy “Clueless.”

Rudd’s other memorable early films included “Romeo + Juliet” and “The Cider House Rules.”

Rudd began his association with Apatow in the 2004 comedy “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” He reprised his role as reporter Brian Fantana in the 2013 sequel, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”

Rudd also appeared in the Apatow films “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Knocked Up,” “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Wanderlust,” and “This Is 40.”

Rudd’s other films include “I Love You, Man,” “Wet Hot American Summer,” “Dinner for Schmucks,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “Our Idiot Brother,” and “Role Models.”

Rudd’s television credits include “Friends,” on which he played the boyfriend and later husband of Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) and “Parks and Recreation,” portraying city council candidate Bobby Newport.
