Paul Rudd And Seth Rogen Read From Harlequin Romance Novels

Last night, Nightline did a segment on the romance novel publisher Harlequin’s 60th Anniversary, and just for fun, they got famous people to read aloud from various romance novels on camera. Here’s just the famous people parts, and as usual, Paul Rudd was the funniest (image looks weird, but video’s fine):

You can watch the entire segment, about Harlequin’s history and how they’re Canadian and how the recession is only making their audience more hungry for bodice-rippers, here, but since this entire “news” report seems like an excuse to show celebrities reading from dirty lady books, I’m not sure why anyone would want to. [Oh, and insert old lady who loves Paul Rudd and romance novels and owns more than two cats joke here.]
