First Look: Paul Rudd+Beard in Sundance Film 'My Idiot Brother'

December 24, 2010

My Idiot Brother

With things quieting down for the holidays and the Sundance Film Festival a few weeks from kicking off, I thought I'd feature some first look photos from a comedy playing at Sundance 2011. The film is called My Idiot Brother and is directed by musician / music video director Jesse Peretz, of The Ch√Ęteau and The Ex previously who has been honing his skills directing episodes of "Important Things with Demetri Martin." The cast most importantly stars Paul Rudd, seen in the photos with bushy beard and all, as "an idealist who barges into the lives of his three sisters." We've got two photos from the film to check out (from Sundance).

All we've got are these two shots for now, but follow the film on Twitter or visit their Facebook for updates.

The rest of the cast, not seen in any photos yet (though I'm pretty damn sure that is Emily Mortimer in the first photo above) is also very impressive: Zooey Deschanel, Elizabeth Banks, Rashida Jones, Emily Mortimer, T.J. Miller, Hugh Dancy, Adam Scott and Steve Coogan. From the Sundance site: After serving time for selling pot and losing custody of his dog named "Willie Nelson", Ned (Rudd) successively moves in with each of his three sisters as he tries to get back on his feet. His best intentions quickly bring the family to the cusp of chaos and ultimately the brink of clarity. This is right down my alley and Rudd looks incredible. I'm looking forward to catching this at Sundance. Check out the official website as well!

Sounds funny enough to me. Hey, If I don't get around to it tomorrow, here's an animated Christmas card I made for you all. I got Michael Bay to do some effects too. Have a good un.
