Player Affinity writes: Most every modern comic actor has his fans and detractors. Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell, for example, have love-hate relationships with fans and non-fans alike. After some exposure, young stars such as Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Michael Cera even started to rub people the wrong way. But I challenge you to find someone that can’t stand Paul Rudd.
Sure, not every role or movie has been a smash (far from it), but if Rudd happens to not be playing a lovable character, he does so in an inclusive manner. It’s one of those intangible “it” factors that some actors just have: to be able to create a believable character but invite the audience in as if everyone knows it’s all fun and games. It makes him one of the best actors working in comedies today.
