Paul Rudd and Jimmy Fallon
The first official "Tonight Show Lip Sync Battle" happened Tuesday night between host Jimmy Fallon and guest Paul Rudd.

The skit was first made famous on "The Late Show" when Fallon was host, and became epic when guest Stephen Merchant, who created the game with pals John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, challenged Jimmy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to a battle that Gordon-Levitt destroyed with a mock performance of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" (watch it below).

This time around it was Rudd's turn to take on the host, and the result is nothing short of hilarious. The "This Is 40" star began by miming...

Paul Rudd Negotiating For Lead Role In 'Ant-Man'

December 19th, 2013 12:03pm EST
Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd has appeared to win a two-man race for the role of Ant-Man.

Variety reports the Anchorman 2 star is negotiating with Marvel to star in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man film. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was rumored to be the other front-runner for the part.

It's possible that Gordon Levitt's recent involvement in DC Comic's Sandman film may have pushed him out of the running - or Rudd was the favored choice in the first place.

Rudd's comedic flair should fit well with Edgar Wright's style, even if the film is a superhero flick at-heart. It is currently rumored that Ant-Man will follow the later ...

Classic Comedy 'Clueless' Arrives On Blu-ray May 1

Clueless
Jane Austen might never have imagined that her 1816 novel "Emma" could be turned into a fresh and satirical look at ultra-rich teenagers in a Beverly Hills high school in "Clueless."

Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash), both named after "great singers of the past that now do infomercials," are pampered upper-class girls who care less about getting good grades than wearing the right clothes and being as popular as possible.

But Cher, who lives with her tough yet warm-hearted lawyer dad (Dan Hedaya) and hunky, sensitive stepbrother (Paul Rudd), also has an innate urge to help...

Producers behind Emma Watson's new film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower have won an appeal to have the film's restrictive 'R' rating overturned.

The rating meant kids under 17 would have to be accompanied by an adult and executives at Summit Entertainment, the production company behind the film, appealed against the decision.
