With her new song, Norah Jones helps set a sultry-sweet, shamelessly clichéd mood for David Wain’s new rom-com spoof They Came Together. The campy flick starring comedy all-stars Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd opens 6/27 in selected theaters and on-demand. “It Was the Last Thing On Your Mind” is one of several original songs featured… More »

I hate looking at funny stuff in the office; I have no control when it comes to laughing so it’s always really obvious when I’m surfing Reddit or something. In that sense the Lonely Island’s new video is torture to watch if you’re at work because it’s easily the funniest thing to come from their… More »
I haven’t seen Judd Apatow’s new film, This Is 40, so I can’t really comment on its flaws or virtues, but I will say that I’m impressed by the film’s deep connection to music. That’s essential to the plot, of course, as star Paul Rudd plays an independent label honcho, but Apatow doesn’t skimp o… More »

Since that band’s demise, he’s kept busy with soundtracking and solo recordings and has a new album Wand forthcoming. He told us, “It’s gonna come out next fall/winter with an accompanying movie. Essentially,… More »
Look we promise, we aren’t getting paid to post about Walk Hard. In fact, we think it looks disappointing. But THIS, well this is more like it. Plus, it has “Wave Of Mutilation” in it (whoa indie cred!). Get Drew Barrymore’s bf/Mac kid Justin Long, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, and The Office’s Craig Robinson together… More »
See, the rumor mill does churn up morsels of truth from time to time. Our first report was grasping at wisps and whispers, but later sources confirmed Jack White (of Cold Mountain/Coffee and Cigarettes fame) was set to play Elvis in Judd Apatow’s forthcoming music-biopic spoof Walk Hard. Big thanks to reader Mitchell for sending… More »
Reader Rebecca writes in:Paul Rudd has his own tag on the Gum, so he’s relevant, right?
Anyway, he guest-starred on last night’s episode of Veronica Mars as a washed-up, drunk asshole musician who was the non-legendary (read: still-alive) half of a fictitious ’90s rock duo. The episode features Rudd skinny-dipping in the ocean and… More »
