In just over a decade, Paul Rudd has gone from swoon bait (as the Mr. Knightley clone in Clueless) to deadpan scene-stealer in films like this summer's Knocked Up. He keeps up a theater career, as well — most recently starring opposite Julia Roberts in Broadway's Three Days of Rain. Peter Kramer/Getty Images hide caption

Paul Rudd, who co-starred in Knocked Up and The 40 Year Old Virgin, produced and stars in the new independent film The Ten — a series of irreverent vignettes that reinterpret the Ten Commandments for a modern audience.

Rudd also stars in the upcoming movie I Could Never Be Your Woman, with Michelle Pfeiffer. His other films include Clueless, Anchorman and The Cider House Rules, and he's been seen on TV's Friends and Reno 911!.
