paul_rudd_98.jpgYou know, when I initially began watching the Red Band (It’s dirty!) trailer for Role Models, all I could think was: What the hell is Paul Rudd doing in a shitty Sean William Scott comedy. They’ll just pair any guy up with that fucker these days, won’t they? But, by the end of the trailer, I was more like: “What the hell is Sean William Scott doing in a Paul Rudd comedy?”

Could it be? Could Role Models be an actual decent comedy without Judd Apatow’s name anywhere on it? I think so. Why? Because Paul Rudd belongs to two comedy circles: The Apatow crew, and then David Wain and “The State” crew. Wain directs Role Models and co-writes with Rudd and another “The State” alum, Ken Marino (familiar to more of you as the sleazy P.I. in “Veronica Mars”). And it’s got McLovin whose character, I’m surprised isn’t actually named McLovin. Also, I think I kind of love Jane “I Eat Cocaine for Breakfast” Lynch.

Give it a look. It arrives in theaters on November 7th.
