Though Paul Rudd is likely gearing up for the release of This is Forty, his latest film with frequent collaborator writer/director Judd Apatow, audiences can see him on stage in New York in Grace.
Imagine you’re on stage, acting your butt off when some guy in the balcony leans over and blows chunks into the orchestra section below. As we wrote yesterday, that’s exactly what happened to Paul Rudd last week during a performance of Grace.

Perhaps Gallagher was on to something with that whole “hand ponchos out to the audience” thing for his comedy shows.
The acting in Grace is extraordinary, with all four actors being seasoned professionals with the ability to portray the array of emotions required of the material.
Paul Rudd Went Back to Broadway Because “The Character is Different From The Kind I’ve Usually Played”
Paul Rudd was ready to leave the comedy roles behind him for a part in Broadway’s Grace, alongside Michael Shannon and Ed Asner.

Ed Asner is appearing for the first time onstage since 1989 in the Broadway production of Grace, alongside Michael Shannon and Paul Rudd.
Paul Rudd is best known for his comedic roles in films like Our Idiot Brother, I Love You, Man, and Knocked Up. But his next part is a huge departure—he’ll be appearing in a Broadway production of the dramatic play, Grace.
‘Grace’ stars Paul Rudd, Michael Shannon, Ed Asner & Kate Arrington Discuss their New Broadway Play (video)
The stars of Grace, Paul Rudd, Michael Shannon, Ed Asner and Kate Arrington, a new Broadway show written by Craig Wright, talk about the production at a recent press event in New York City.
As funny of a guy as Paul Rudd is, when he takes the lead in a film the box office isn’t always there. His last three starring roles — Wanderlust, Our Idiot Brother, and How Do You Know — all underperformed. So it’s a good thing that Rudd is more than just a movie actor, since he is making a return to Broadway after several years in movies to star in Grace alongside Michael Shannon, Kate Arrington, and Ed Asner.
Two of my favorite actors, Paul Rudd and Michael Shannon, are teaming up for the Broadway show, Grace.
