You gotta love Paul Rudd. The guy can make the most simple straight-laced types hilarious, and is possibly even better when playing guys that are just off the wall. Will he be more of the latter in the upcoming comedy MY IDIOT BROTHER? Judging from these new Dude-esque images that have just been released, I'd say probably.

The film - directed by Jesse Peretz ("Important Things With Demetri Martin", THE CHATEAU) with a script from Evgenia Peretz and David Schisgall - also stars Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones, T.J. Miller, Hugh Dancy, Adam Scott, and Steve Coogan. It will be premiering next month at Sundance.

Synopsis: Despite looking for the good in every situation and the best in every person, Ned always seems to find himself holding the short end of the stickóbeing conned into selling pot to a uniformed cop, being dumped by his girlfriend, and worse yet, losing custody of his beloved dog, Willie Nelson. When he turns to family, he is passed from sister to sister while he gets back on his feet. Nedís best intentions produce hilariously disastrous results, bringing the family to the cusp of chaos and ultimately the brink of clarity.

Extra Tidbit: Oh God, I have those exact same shades.

Can't wait for the movie. Paul Rudd is one of the most underrated people out there and it's amazing to see how far he has come from "Clueless".

It's too bad he won't be involved in the new Jason Segel Puppets movie. Him and Segel make a great team.

Also, Rudd has a lot of hot sisters in this movie.

Fuck yes. I think Rudd is the funniest man on the planet, but I have to admit that 2010 wasn't exactly a great year for him (Schmucks and How Do You Know? Eh.) But this project sounds PERFECT, I love that he's playing a Dude-esque type character. He's played the straight-man in too many movies of late. This plus another Wain collabo next year has me VERY excited.

Rudd is the man. Dinner for Schmucks was way underrated. I went into it thinking it was going to be awful and was surprised how good it was. He looks like JP in I'm Still Here.

Oh the weather outside is weather...
