AAS: Funnyman gets funny in Austin

AAS: Funnyman gets funny in Austin

Baggy-eyed, hair tousled, face a schmear of dark whiskers, Paul Rudd looks like he spent a Saturday night in Austin. It was a good night, and he had reason to celebrate. Earlier that day his film “The Ten” sold out the 1,200-seat Paramount Theatre to an eruptively appreciative audience who laughed at every gag, joke and quip in the often brilliant absurdist comedy. The movie is one of three comedies Rudd’s pushing at the South by Southwest Film Festival this week and last. As Paul Rudd riffs on the absurd, you forget he has a trio of SXSW films to promote. The others are “Diggers” and “Knocked Up,” Judd Apatow‘s sequel to “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” in which Rudd co-starred. All three films will be released later this year. Chris Garcia reports for the Austin American Statesman.
