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

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.
