Off-the-Wall 2013 - Paul Rudd: Hometown Hero

All Library locations will be closed on Monday, September 1, in observance of Labor Day.


Paul Rudd first found acting success performing serious stuff like Shakespeare on the Broadway stage. But in recent years the Kansas City native has become a comedy icon, thanks to his regular gig on TV’s Friends and high-profile roles in big-screen hits from the likes of Judd Apatow.

Rudd has gone from stealing scenes as a supporting player to being the name above the title, and in 2013 the Library celebrates his career with Paul Rudd: Hometown Hero, this summer’s Off-the-Wall Film Series.



Most titles are recommended for adult audiences only.
