Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott in Role Models

It’s been a pretty good summer for comedy, with flicks like Tropic Thunder and Pineapple Express being box-office hits as well as laugh-your-ass-off hysterical, but don’t go picking your favorite of the year just yet… Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott may just prove to be the underdogs of the year with their new film, Role Models. Check out the new red-band trailer below.

Rudd is a comedic genius with the snarky deadpan, and he’s often the high point of any film even when it’s no more than a glorified cameo. After seeing this trailer though with Rudd in a starring role, I may have to count this as his mea culpa for the depressingly mind-numbing Over Her Dead Body from earlier this year. I understand he did it for the paycheck, but still… Jane Lynch also shines as the ex-addict head of Sturdy Wings, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nick Nervies both stand out as the boys in need of servicing. Director David Wain also made Wet Hot American Summer, which is one of the funniest goddamn movies that very few people have seen.

Role Models opens November 7th.
