It’s the end of summer and that means it’s finally time to see the films that everyone was talking about in Park City. Our Idiot Brother, the first of the big sale items from the Sundance Film Festival, hits theaters this Friday from the newly reinvigorated Weinstein Company. Unlike many Sundance offerings, this is an audience-friendly comedy starring Paul Rudd as the idiot sibling in question with Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, Zooey Deschanel and Elizabeth Banks playing the women he unintentionally tortures with his naiveté.
Recently, I sat down with Rudd to discuss the film. During our interview he told me about what it’s like to not age, how he’s preparing to begin doing nude scenes, how he manages to switch between mainstream and indie films and a bit about his upcoming film with Judd Apatow, tentatively titled, This is Forty. Hit the jump to watch.
