First images of Paul Rudd in My Idiot Brother family comedy


Step aside Ben Stiller, Gaylord Focker isn’t the only one causing chaos on their family. Surprisingly the guy in the picture above isn’t Joaquin Phoenix or Zach Galifianakis’s little brother, it’s Paul Rudd breaking free from his mostly “straight man” past to pursue quite the interesting role. Here’s the synopsis of this upcoming Sundance film:

“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 stick—being 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. Ned’s best intentions produce hilariously disastrous results, bringing the family to the cusp of chaos and ultimately the brink of clarity.”

There’s another picture in the image gallery below for you to contemplate and scrutinize over until My Idiot Brother comes out in a few weeks at the Sundance Film Festival.
