Not to be confused with actor Paul Rudd (b. 1940), featured in many stage and TV productions, including the CBS series "Beacon Hill", who more or less retired from performing in the 1980s.
About his role in "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers": "Even when I was doing it, I knew this was something I'd always be teased about. And when I finally saw it, I thought my career was over.
"The only good thing was working with the great Donald Pleasance [in the last film before his death]. But I remember the end credits listing 'In loving memory of Donald Pleasance.' How sad is that? Here's a guy who worked with Pinter, starred in 'The Great Escape' and was one of Britain's greatest actors, ending up in 'Halloween VI'. I felt even worse for him than I did for myself." --Paul Rudd quoted in the New York Post, February 27, 1997.
On his Broadway debut in Alfred Uhry's "The Last Night of Ballyhoo": "I tried to suck in every moment of it when I would walk to reheasal carrying my script and having coffe, and thinking, 'I'm on my way to rehearse a Broadway play.' The feeling of history in that was thrilling." --Rudd to Caren Weiner in The New York Times, April 26, 1998.
"I feel pretty fortunate that I've been able to make a jump to doing something like [Shakespeare] in a fairly short amount of time. I always hoped that it would happen." --Rudd to Time Out New York, July 2-9. 1998.
"He's got that million-dollar smile. I always tell him he's the father's nightmare. Every woman I've ever known says the same thing--'He's so cute!'" --"The Last Night of Ballyhoo" playwright Alfred Uhry on Rudd to InTheater, July 17, 1998.
