Paul Rudd played the role of Josh or Mr. Knightly that became one of his defining roles during his teen years. He played the half-brother and love interest of the lead actress, Alicia Silverstone. He reckoned, ‘It actually had achieved that status for a lot of people. What a cool thing it is to be involved in something that attains that level of importance in a lot of kids’ lives.’ Well known for his other lead billings in ‘I love You, Man’ (2009), ‘Ant-Man’ (2015), and ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ (2018), he noted that doing theater comes first for him. It is the most enriching experience to do as an actor he added. For him, ‘There’s something magical about a shared experience in a theater, with actors and an audience. I don’t know if the audience members realize just how huge a part they play in a production. How they are determine how we are, and when it all works, it’s magical.’
