Beard Of The Day – May 21st – Paul Rudd


Though often clean-shaven and seeming un-aging, Paul Rudd is more than capable of rocking a fantastic beard when the time is right. Rudd got his first break in the movie Clueless, playing a dopey college student. He used that fame to get other minor roles in dramas and TV but really seemed to find a place when he fell into the role of Andy in The State’s Wet Hot American Summer, which still remains one of my favorite comedies.

In the last 10 years or so, Rudd has continually worked with the likes of David Wain, Judd Apatow and others. While not every movie he’s making is gold (Dinner for Schmucks was pretty godawful), he’s consistently an actor you can trust to be in a movie that’s at least watchable, if not great. Rudd has also moved into producing, creating the awesome but short-lived series Party Down and will even pop up in random roles… like narrator for HBO’s Hard Knocks when they covered his beloved Kansas City Chiefs.
